Unlike anything you’ve read or experienced before.

Now in our 28th year, Latitudes & Attitudes celebrates and supports the cruising lifestyle worldwide. Continuously the #1 best-selling and most read boating lifestyle magazine on US newsstands and around the globe, Lats & Atts inspires all types of cruisers by highlighting the real-life experiences of boaters already living their dream on the water, while providing insightful tips, tricks and fun to enhance this lifestyle.
Founded in 1997 by life-long biker and tattoo enthusiast-become sailor Bob Bitchin and lovely new wife Jody, after they completed their world-wide adventures aboard The Lost Soul. Along their journey they met countless cruisers realizing their dreams out on the water, inspiring the vision for Lats & Atts.

In early 2022 Bob & Jody passed the torch and sold Latitudes & Attitudes to Kyle Media of Toledo, Ohio, owned by Erik & Melanie Kyle, and long-time publishers of Great Lakes Scuttlebutt magazine. Aspiring cruisers themselves, Erik and Melanie have made it their life’s mission to serve the ever-growing boating industry by providing platforms for interaction, inspiration, and marine business growth. In addition to Great Lakes Scuttlebutt, now in its 31st year, Kyle Media also offers Marine Marketing Solutions digital network for business-to-consumer interaction, and Scuttlebutt the social media app geared for boaters of all kinds.
