Semi-Custom Websites

Our high quality semi-custom sites are our most popular option. They are designed to get you up and running within 6 weeks and can be rushed for an additional fee.

"The Hammer & Nail Marketing team demystified digital marketing for our marina. We're in the boating business, we're not in the tech business. We were skeptical at first, but quickly saw the value in going digital. Within 2 months of launching our marina's new website, we had a +50 ft vessel come into our marina as a direct result of seeing us online. They would have never found us otherwise. 5-stars across the board."

“I love Hammer and Nail. They’re very responsive. You call them up and say ‘can you change this, add this’ - they’ll do it. Usually within a day…They’re very responsive. If everybody responded the way that they did? I wouldn’t have any problems.”

Who owns my marina’s site after it’s launched? 

That’s an easy one, you do! 

We recommend continuing to work with us for maintenance, updates, and support of your website so you can stay focused on working with your staff and the boaters. But if you rather do it yourself, we’re happy to transfer your marina’s website to whichever hosting platform you choose. It’s yours!

How do I update information?

We host all of our sites using the most popular CMS on the internet, WordPress. If you’re familiar with that content management system, great. If you’d like to learn more about it, there is plenty of documentation on the internet.

How do I know if it’s working?

There are a lot of ways to assess whether or not your online marketing efforts are working or not. 


  • Asking your customers
  • Increases in email inquiries
  • Increases in phone calls
  • Increased website traffic

Included in our maintenance and support packages, we track your website visitors and can send you monthly reports on what your website traffic looks like. 

We find that most marina operators simply ask their customers “how did you hear about us?” Then they might say something like: 

Oh I Googled “Marinas in Pensacola, FL and you were the top result so I gave you a call.”
