Fox’s Marina and Boatyard

The Client


Who they are

Fox’s Marina and Boatyard is an independently owned business established almost a century ago, back in 1927. This Ipswich-based firm boasts some of the UK’s most comprehensive yacht refit and repair facilities, with dedicated departments across its 15-acre site. Fox’s Marina and Boatyard also supplies some of the leading names in British yacht building, including Spirit Yachts and Southampton Yacht Services.

Unique in-house expertise

The Fox’s Boatyard is somewhat unique in that it offers a comprehensive in-house service. The yard features highly-skilled and experienced boat handlers, riggers, engineers and fabricators, with a wealth of knowledge in project managing refits on yachts, using any material. The business also operates a chandlery and marine store available for customers to purchase in-store and online.

The Challenge


The specification

It was clear following our initial consultations with Fox’s Marina and Boatyard that their previous website no longer offered a suitable reflection of their business and its services. Our in-house web designers and developers worked in close collaboration with the client to develop a fully responsive new website that articulated their unique expertise and services best.

In recent years, the client had also struggled to generate leads online through its website and wanted a more reliable source of enquiries from any new website.
