"Colin Squire Publishing is one of the best companies I have worked with. Yachting Matters is not just a magazine but more than that. I sincerely believe that it's because of the personal touch of Colin who is aware of what's going on in the market through his great network within the yachting segment. Since our cooperation with CSP, we have witnessed a remarkable improvement in our business, especially in the segment of Megayachts. We are looking forward to sustain and develop this cooperation."

"We have worked with Colin, Yachting Matters magazine and his YachtFile packs for over 10 years now to promote our Awlgrip range. The advantage of working with Yachting Matters is that we know where the magazines are delivered so that the ROI (Return On Investment) is much more concrete compared to other publications. Colin's knowledge of the market and personal touch combined with the premium quality of the magazine, is a perfect fit for Awlgrip and reflects our own brand values"

"BWA Yachting (Blue Water Alliance) was formed in 2003 and we have used the YachtFile pack and Yachting Matters magazine consistently over this period to access the Captains and Owners of Superyachts which are essentially the clients of our company. We have always had good, honest and knowledgeable service and have found Colin and Karen a pleasure to work with. We would without doubt be happy to recommend them to any company looking for a media outlet that targets the Superyacht industry so well."
Francesco Luise, Managing Partner / J. Luise & Sons Ltd
"I'd say my heartfelt thanks for the hard work Colin has done over the past years for our group of companies in Italy, The Luise Group. I believe we were among the companies joining at the very beginnings of the YachtFile pack way back in 1994 and we still use it every year! Both YachtFile and Yachting Matters have given us invaluable support over the years, including a very pivotal moment when we decided to re-launch our image to the yachting market. We have without doubt over the years gained extremely positive exposure from both Yachting Matters and YachtFile."

"When I entered the yachting industry 15 years ago with Icon Connect, there is no doubt that I had little idea of the enormity and extraordinary nature of this wonderful industry. I was introduced to Colin's magazine Yachting Matters very early on and very quickly it became my reference point for a clear and concise view of what's going on across this industry sector. The fact that it is uncluttered with adverts, it is factual and gives not just me as a supplier a perspective, but an Owner, Captain, Crew and other journalist can to this day pick the magazine up and instantly understand it's content. The images are always incredible and I am grateful to Colin for allowing us to use his occasionally in our own material. Colin has be a great source of help and inspiration to me in my journey and I cannot recommend his publication enough. "
Duncan Sweet, Director / Mid Atlantic Yacht Services
