In an effort to be more accessible to the boating community, Jamestown Distributors launched a mobile version of its website.

“People are increasingly using mobile devices to access the Internet, and the Jamestown mobile website will enable boaters to research our online catalog and technical information when it’s most convenient for them — whether that is on their boat or in their workshop,” said Dan Gendreau, head of Web marketing at Jamestown, in a statement.

The mobile website is designed to offer all of the features of the full site, including Verisign secure shopping, robust search capabilities and access to all technical information.

Compatible with most major smart phones, users will be able to quickly browse all of the categories, place orders and research products conveniently. The mobile version of Jamestown’s website is automatically opened by visiting www.jamestowndistributors.com.
