Ahoy! was a computer magazine published between January 1984 and January 1989 that focused on all Commodore color computers, but especially the Commodore 64 and Amiga.

History[edit]

The first issue of Ahoy! was published in January 1984.[1] The magazine was published monthly by Ion International and was headquartered in New York City.[1] It published many games in BASIC and machine language, occasionally also printing assembly language source code. Ahoy! published a checksumming program called Flankspeed for entering machine language listings.[2]

Ahoy!'s AmigaUser was a related but separate publication dedicated to the Amiga. It was spun off from a series of columns in Ahoy! with the same title, and the first two issues were published instead of the parent magazine in May and August 1988.
