The new online destination for MarineMax, the nation’s largest publicly traded recreational boat and yacht retailer, created a hub to unite people through a shared love of the boating lifestyle, making the purchase process more rewarding and seamless for existing and prospective customers.
MarineMax' existing website was confusing and fragmented, providing an ineffective boat search tool and experience for users looking to easily find a boat and make contact with a dealer at the local level.
Leveraging Sitecore, Sagepath focused on creating a more engaging experience that simplified the selection process through enhanced search tools, personalization and localization, and a visual boat type wizard that enabled customers to find the perfect boat.
The reimagined website delivers a more personalized experience, guiding users through the purchase path with a new boat finder, localized boat inventory listings and dealer information, and boat detail pages featuring interactive, 3D image galleries to drive increased engagement and conversion.
Since the launch of the site, MarineMax has seen a significant increase in site traffic, mobile user engagement and dealer inquiries and leads.

Bringing the Boating Lifestyle to Life
The reimagined design of the website allowed MarineMax to showcase the beauty and fun of the boating lifestyle in a much more inviting way with additional offerings such as boating events, excursions and vacation "getaways."
