Promotion of the industry

British Marine website

The British Marine website acts as a portal with a powerful knowledge base for the marine industry and a tool to promote members' businesses. It is supported by email communication, news and press.

On The Water

On The Water is the consumer brand of British Marine which aims to raise awareness of boating, break down the barriers to entry and encourage regular participation in boating. Our goal is to increase the number of active boating participants. Around 3.2 million people get on the water in the UK each year, across a range of boating activities from kayaking and inland boating, to sailing and motor boating, to name just a few ways of getting afloat. This initiative features our members exclusively, providing the public with the reassurance that all products and services are being provided by businesses that adhere to British Marine standards.

On the Water LogoBritish Marine members are promoted through regular enewsletters and social media to a growing On The Water database of potential new boaters. This enables us to maintain a 360o approach to communications and keep in contact with consumers. Visit the On The Water website.
