Daniel Harding

Editor

Growing up, Dan spent his winters in the boatyard and his summers aboard his family’s 33-foot Egg Harbor, cruising from Maine to the Bahamas. During these trips he religiously logged his adventures in a notebook, hoping to share his stories with friends and family upon his return home.

Flash-forward a decade later: Not much has changed. He’s still penning tales of adventure and misadventure, now as editor of Power & Motoryacht. When he’s not testing a boat or chasing down a story he can be found restoring and cruising his classic boat around New England. And as for that notebook, it's still never too far away.
