Our members are in all 50 states and in five continents with the vast majority residing in the continental U.S. The largest concentration is in boating states such as Michigan, New York, California, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
In addition to advertising in The Brass Bell, advertisers are listed on the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club website and have the option of online banner advertising (see below). Online listings consist of a brief description, contact information and a link to the advertiser’s site.
The Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club is growing rapidly — currently averaging five new members per week. This means your ad will reach more vintage boating enthusiasts with each quarter that passes.
We control the quality of the reader experience of The Brass Bell by managing a strict ratio of content to advertising. We currently have three ad sizes available: Quarter Page Vertical, Half Page Horizontal, and Full Page. The One Time Rate is for a single insertion in a single issue. The Four Time Rate is for four consecutive issues. The Four Time Rate is equivalent to the Single Issue Rate multiplied times four, minus 20%. Payment is due upon receipt of invoice, and it is required to lock-in your advertising space.
