Believing there to be a gap in the market for a comprehensive website where editorial is industry-led, from people in the job writing on what they know best, Onboard Online ltd have launched Onboardonline.com a new Web site for yacht crew worldwide
Its aim is to bring together the various strands of the yachting industry onto one platform, and to facilitate dialogue in both directions.
It claims to be the only interactive site where users can talk directly to peers as well as suppliers to the yachting industry; ask questions and get answers.
So, if you have something to say, or if you agree or disagree with something you’ve read, please get involved. You can post comments or start discussions in the forum or, better still, you can write for us!
Jean Opheij the company’s Sales Manager said, “We’ve found our niche by organizing things differently, and bringing the loose ends together in a way that is logical and easy to use.”
The site is currently divided the site into 21 sections, covering everything you’d expect or want, ranging from Command to Crew Management, Engine Room to Shipyard.
The site contains sections on
- Marine Traffic
- Port Finder
- Security Intelligence Reports
There is also an events page, and designed and Global Business Directory.
Opheij says, “There are some excellent crew media already out there, and we have not re-invented the wheel. It’s a work in progress and, as we continue to develop the content, please let us know if there’s something you’d like us to include. We’ll also be providing you with daily news stories, interviews, industry articles and regular columns from our favourite crew writers.”
