A cloud-based personalized portal, VesselVanguard enhances boat ownership by making it easier for boaters to understand and organize the maintenance, inspection and warranty requirements for their onboard systems.

Rushton Gregory was selected by the Annapolis, Md.-based business to broaden its media exposure. Rushton Gregory will drive VesselVanguard’s public relations efforts, including announcing new offerings and agreements and organizing press opportunities.

“VesselVanguard signifies a profound change in the industry’s ability to positively affect customer satisfaction levels through the course of boat ownership and, as a result, expand sales,” Rushton Gregory principal and co-founder Andrew Golden said in a statement. “We are very excited to serve as its marketing partner.”
