“The discount program is another benefit that we can offer to boaters. Now, in addition to the online marina reservations, travel tools, and boater’s insurance that we provide, we also offer ways to save money. It fits perfectly with our mission to provide boaters with ways to enhance their boating experience, and everybody likes to save money.”

Marinalife, the online boating concierge and reservations service, has launched a new website, with a clean, nautical look that bodes well for the user experience. The company has also added a useful search function for back issues of the Marinalife Magazine, and its new blog.

I did a quick test of the search function using the word “Charleston” and got three hits related to South Carolina destinations, including an interesting article on Beaufort, South Carolina, that included helpful suggestions on what to do, where to eat and where to dock.

“We are excited about the launch of our new site. We put a lot of thought into the features and functionality that would make the site easy to use and that would serve both our boating and marina members. Member feedback also allowed us to tailor the site to what the users wanted. As our 10-year anniversary comes to a close, the new site is an ideal way to go into our next decade of serving the boating public,” says Joy McPeters, CEO of Marinalife.

Marinalife offers boaters a free 30-day trial including a free one-year subscription to Marinalife Magazine; full membership is available with five different levels ranging from $60-500 per year.You can take a longer look at the website and their various membership services here.
