Asia-Pacific Boating is happy to welcome Nick Walton as its new managing editor.

A veteran magazine editor and journalist who has enjoyed senior editorial roles with the South China Morning Post, Elite Traveler, Jetsetter Magazine and others, Nick brings a wealth of luxury lifestyle journalistic experience to the role and will oversee Asia-Pacific Boating‘s digital evolution as well as the repositioning of its bi-annual print magazine.

An avid traveller with a passion for the ocean, emerging destinations and conservation, Nick will help direct Blue Planet, APB‘s coverage of vital sustainability and conservation issues within the boating industry while expanding its lifestyle coverage across two annual issues.

“I’m really excited to join the Asia-Pacific Boating team and to share in their vision to create the region’s leading voice in the boating industry,” says Nick Walton. “This is a vital sector of Asia-Pacific’s thriving economy and one that contributes greatly to the individual economies of the countries that call the region home while also offering consumers the opportunity to make informed decisions when they purchase their next vessel. With our focus on sustainability and conservation within the industry, I think Asia-Pacific Boating will continue to be a force within the yachting industry scene.”

“I look forward to meeting APB‘s many friends and industry partners and contributing to the team’s efforts in reporting on the global boating scene for our readers across the Asia-Pacific region.”
