Wellington Yachts is pleased to announce we have launched an update to our Web Site!

The Site now uses the latest technology available, including:

  • A mobile-responsive format; take a look at it in your smartphone!
  • Restructured Power and Sail listings tabs, for switching between yacht lengths without page-reloading, for faster viewing.
  • Advanced caching technology, to make page loading much faster.

 The new Site uses the very popular open-source Content Management System called Drupal. Drupal powers the Whitehouse.gov Web Site (and many government sites, such as Australia.gov.au), as well as MSNBC, The Economist, Weather.com and thousands more. 

Drupal is optimized for search engine optimization, with additional add-on modules to provide the ultimate SEO exposure including SEO checklist, metatags, xml sitemap, global redirect and more. Wellington Yacht Partners monitors Google Site crawling through it’s Webmaster Tools Account, tweaking the Web Site as needed for further optimization. 

Wellington Yacht Partners is pleased to announce that Bob Marston has recently become a Partner, following his joining the team in summer, 2014.
