Advertising with Yachtbuilder InternationalThe most cost-effective and best-presented advertising the industry has seen... And no more guess work... This media delivers full readership/viewing stats, not to mention the 'live links' on all buttons and banners and on the display ads throughout the page-turning magazine... And of course there are the multimedia opportunities — slideshows and movie clips can be attached to display ads... Oh yes, our advertisers have massive scope. Plus they will know precisely what their budgets are delivering as our viewing stats are second to none!





Yachtbuilder International and is promoted to 15,000-plus industry executives located all over the world — 7,500 or so at boatyards, 3,500 or so at equipment and material manufacturers and distributors, 2,000 boat dealers, distributors and brokers, and a further 2,000-plus elsewhere — naval architects, yacht design studios, professionally crewed yachts etc. But that’s the tip of the iceberg. Eventually we expect to attract double or triple those figures as the word spreads.

Everyone in the industry with an internet connection and whose job function could be enhanced by being more clued up about what is happening in the boatbuilding business internationally is encouraged to sign up.

The site is free to view, but there are subscription incentives, simply so we can capture the essentials regarding readership demographics.

Everywhere in the world that there are boats and industry infrastructure, Yachtbuilder International is influencing!

To promote the site and drive traffic, the subscription list will receive a weekly newsletter, one carrying the headline summaries of the latest news and new-product stories to be found on the website, plus alerting to newly ‘posted’ digital issues.
But a huge benefit of web-based media is accurate viewing figures. Unlike the paper competition — which likes to maintain every page in every issue is seen by multiple readers — digital media register every click and every ‘live link’ trail.

All Yachtbuilder International advertisers will get regular reports detailing views per page, including geographical breakdowns and clicked links. So our advertisers will know precisely how well their ads are doing.
