Marinas.com, a site that provides marina owners and operators with slip reservations and services, said it had more than 3.6 million visits from active boaters during the first eight months of this year.
Marinas.com has increased its unique visitors by 45 percent through Aug. 31 from the same period in 2011, the company said. On this track, Marinas.com would end the year with more than 5 million visits from more than 3.8 million unique visitors.
Last month, Marinas.com relaunched its website with a complete makeover — new home page, new features for marinas and users, and new tools and benefits.
Also new is a boater’s forum, BoatBuzz.com, that creates a new way for boaters to get and share information. Marinas can post information about such things as specials, fishing tournaments and job postings.
