From the Editor: 2024

Happy New Year! As 2024 gets into full swing, we here at Pacific Maritime Magazine hope that the year will be a very pleasant and prosperous year for you, your loved ones and your colleagues.

Here at PMM home base, we’ve been cooking up some special content to publish throughout the upcoming year, and I’d like to take a moment to tell you about some of it.

If you subscribe to the print edition of Pacific Maritime, you’ve probably already seen some of our 2024 content by now. In the magazine’s January/February issue, which was mailed out in December, articles on ocean & coastal towing, Pacific Northwest ports and offshore wind appeared.

And coming up in the next issue, which goes to print in February, are articles on maritime construction projects, the spill response & recovery industry and a detailing of the latest news at California’s seaports.

Later in 2024, features on container handling equipment, new vessels & tugboats, maritime infrastructure projects, deck machinery and diving & salvage equipment are all planned for the magazine.

Also on the publishing schedule is the second edition of Pacific Maritime’s ports and facilities directory, a comprehensive list of the major maritime-related businesses along the West Coast, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands.

We’re very excited about what we have in store for you throughout the year, and hopefully you’ll find the content to be both useful and informative.

By the way, if there’s a topic that you’d like to see covered in the magazine, feel free to let us know. You can email us at or reach out to me specifically at the address below. We’d be glad to have your input.

And as always, thanks for reading.
