It is much better than the last one, I like it, simple and easy to navigate...shame the prices aren't listed on there though, especially as they're such good value, seems a bit illogical?  Unless I'm being slow and have missed some button somewhere - quite possible!

Yeah it's a nice clean site - It's obviously built by a third party from a template though, so don't expect any internal photos just yet. The omission of prices seems odd too, though I imagine that could be down to cost. I'd be interested to know what those guys charge.

I was curious why the picture of Pacific Princess has been flipped and the name stuck back on though. I guess it does look better that way and only AF37 nutters like me would notice.

Their dayboat looks cute, I don't know how old the pic is but I'd be interested in hiring it at that price if their 'day' is a long one.

Good spot on Princess Jonzo, I asked Richard how the photo came to be transposed yet the name still be OK?. The sundeck access is on the wrong side in this picture and you can clearly see the drinking water filter in the foreward window which should be on the port side.

Fiona promises internal photos to follow soon, so you'll be able to see the boat interiors too. Not sure about prices but my guess would be cost of regular updates etc. It is a shame as they're such good value.

I would say someone's been playing in Photoshop.

Yeah it's normal to charge an initial fee and then per update.. I'm just curious to know what kind of rates those guys work at.

there is an option which I've seen on some other boat co.s sites where the web page links to an external source, usually an excel spreadsheet which the yard can update themselves, hence no need for the web designers to get involved in updates but the costs are still high for initial set up.

I looked at getting a site with such a page designed for our church recently and set up costs were phenominal. I'm about to enter the world of webmastering myself!

It's funny you should mention excel as an update method, that is what we started with on availability dates for a french holiday site we were involved with - end user gets on great with it.
Another option is Macromedia Contribute, lets you update sites easily enough but without any knowledge of html

Drifting off-topic somewhat, but it's rather easy to provide the customer with complete control of their inventory, bookings etc. And it just so happens that I've almost finished writing such a booking/reservation system   - yet another subtle plug !

I was intersted to read your comments ref. Web design and update charges.
I am a web designer and been so for just over 9 years and my way of working / charging is to charge a fixed cost yearly and allow free updates as and when required.

If companies are still being charged for up dates then they should be looking into another provider / designer.
Companies should be able to have their sites changed when required or at least on a three monthly basics.

Good advertising is too important not to have it updated.

Sorry if I have offended any company but I do feel strongly about keeping advertising correct.
