Media Kit

The Newport Harbor Guide is a high-quality, full-size, full-color, collectible magazine that is published once a year, in print and online, in early May. It is recognized as the premier marine resource for the Newport waterfront and ports around Narragansett Bay and features practical information and award-winning maps of Newport Harbor, plus well-written and beautifully-illustrated articles on many points of interest and events throughout the Narragansett Bay area, where you find the finest sailing in the world!

The goal of our magazine is to entice the world’s yachting community to visit Newport and Narragansett Bay, then to provide them with useful “insider” information and entertainment while they are here. Our many advertisers illustrate the amazing breadth of amenities for visitors as well as locals, including marine services and supplies, provisioning, transportation, attractions, retail outlets, restaurants, health care providers, and more. If you have a product or service you want the marine and yachting community to know about, you should be advertising in the Newport Harbor Guide!

Print – 18,000 copies are distributed to marine and yachting interests in Newport, and throughout Narragansett Bay and Southern New England, the East Coast from Nova Scotia to Florida, plus Bermuda, the Caribbean, Great Britain, Europe, and the Mediterranean.

OnLine – NHG’s new WordPress website accommodates desktop computers and smart devices with ease. Anyone anywhere in the world can read full “virtual” issues back to 2009 on the internet, where the articles can be translated into over 20 languages. Advertisers are indexed for easy searching, and all links within ads and directory listings are live, including websites, emails and maps with directions right to your door.
