Yacht Search

Yacht Search began as a proof point, a kind of extra that could be linked to from our users experience lists on their resumes. Similar to Linkedin boat pages were automatically created from user input.

We now have thousands of boats listed and a steady flow of search traffic. We’ve been working with boats to make the pages look cool and provide links to what they need, a bit like a flashy Link Tree.

Exactly what it says on the tin! You can add events and courses for our calendar to keep crew informed with all the info.
