Marine Web Designs

Welcome to Marine Web Designs!

About Us

Marine Web Designs specialises in making fast, clean, and attractive websites for marine-oriented small businesses such as scuba diving shops, sailing charters, and powerboat trips. We can also help with non-marine projects if you've found us and like what we do.

We use cutting-edge web development technology, not WordPress like many other agencies use. The result is a blazing-fast website with higher scores in Google's site-quality analysis, which translates into better search ranking consideration.

We understand that you, as a small business owner, have better things to worry about than building and maintaining a website. We offer personal and prompt service, and will be here to support you long-term. You are not just a number to us, and we do not send group emails. Every email you receive from us will be sent only to you and you will be addressed by name.

We offer a low-cost Standard Plan based on our demo site, or we can make something to your specifications with customisation options. Try our demo site in mobile mode to the rightbelow (the green buttons don't always work in this demo mobile window, but they work when using the real site directly), or you can view the demo site in your full window. Notice that there is virtually zero loading time from page to page. That is the cutting-edge speed mentioned earlier!

Prices

We offer the Standard Plan and optional customisation for creating your website. Hosting, maintenance, and support are ongoing and are provided by our Service Plan.

The Standard Plan is a fixed price and is based on our demo website. With the Standard Plan you provide the images, text, and logo. You can choose the colours and font(s) to match your brand or that you just like best. More information is in the card below.

Customisation is different for each client and price will be determined when we have discussed what you need. With customisation you can do things like add multiple languages, an online shop, email hosting, domain purchase, logo design, etc. More information is in the card below.
