Power and Motoryacht and SAIL magazines announced that Tim Bartlett has joined their staff as electronics editor. Bartlett was technical editor of the UK’s leading powerboat magazine, Motor Boat and Yachting for more than a decade, and since 1997 he has contributed to all the major British boating publications as well as SAIL. Bartlett has written 14 books on such diverse topics as basic navigation, celestial navigation, radar, outboards, and diesel engines. Tim is also author of Complete Powerboating Manual. Beyond his considerable writing skills, Bartlett is also a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation, a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Yachtmaster Instructor (Power), an RYA Advanced Powerboat Trainer, an RYA Radar Trainer, and an SRC Instructor/Assessor, and has his own website, www.timbartlett.co.uk

“Consistent with its position as the marine industry’s only pure product magazine, PMY has been the clear leader in marine electronics coverage for more than 20 years,” said publisher Richard Thiel. “Bringing Tim on board will ensure that it continues that editorial leadership.” "Tim is one of the world's most well-respected and authoritative boating writers, and we're delighted to have him on board with us," said SAIL's editor, Peter Nielsen. "With Tim, Nigel Calder and Don Casey all writing for us, combined with our in-house talent, I can safely say we have the strongest editorial team of any sailing magazine in the country."

“I am excited about my new position at the sister magazines,” says Bartlett. “They are the leading U.S. magazines in their field, and I’m looking forward to covering the latest technologies for them, both in print and online.” Bartlett debuts in PMY’s June issue with a review of Glonass, the Russian version of GPS. His first feature article for SAIL will be an evaluation of the new broadband radar technology in the June issue.
