Ed McKnew, Owner/Editor

Ed began his career in the marine industry in 1978 when he and a close friend purchased a small boat brokerage business in Traverse City, Michigan. Moving to Texas in 1980, Ed continued to sell boats in Clear Lake until 1988 when he and partner Mark Parker published the first edition of the PowerBoat Guide. Ed has spent the years since serving as editor of the PowerBoat Guide while living in both Florida, Arizona, and northern Michigan. He has a bachelors degree in business from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.

Over 25 years have passed since Ed McKnew and Mark Parker produced the first PowerBoat Guide in 1989. Working at that time as yacht brokers in Clear Lake, TX, Ed and Mark grew the publication during the following years until it became the default reference source for brokers and surveyors in need of dependable boating information. It continues to rank among the most quoted publcations in the marine industry.

With Mark no longer active in the business, the  PowerBoat Guide is today produced and edited by Ed McKnew.
