Manufacturers debut new Web sites

Two boat manufacturers recently announced the launch of new Web sites.

Weldcraft Boats’ new site can be found at www.weldcraftmarine.com. The site contains interactive content, including an application that takes users through a factory tour to demonstrate the manufacturing process, while an adjacent window compares operational costs to other activities such as golfing and vacationing.

Through independent marine dealers, Weldcraft manufactures and distributes a full line of boats ranging from 17-26 feet.

Duckworth Boat Works’ new site can be found at www.duckworthboats.com. The site contains more than 100 pages of photography, detailed model descriptions and a library of professionally-produced videos. The core of the site is the E-adventure portal where users can read and share boating adventures.

Duckworth has been building aluminum boats for more than 40 years.

Both manufacturers are Renaissance Marine Group companies.
