Connect &


Your marketing. Sorted.

The purpose of marketing is to get your story across. To connect with customers, make sales and grow your business. We’ll help you choose the right tactics, and we’ll deliver them at the right time.

Whether you need a virtual marketing department, a website refresh, a monthly newsletter or just a bit of ad hoc hands-on support, we can help.


On your wavelength

Successful marketing is all about communicating effectively. Digital, print or face-to-face, you’ve got to speak the same language to know what makes your audience tick and how to get them over the line.

The marine industry has a distinct language, so it’s easy to spot the landlubbers who can’t tell a splice from a spinnaker. With 20+ years in the marine industry, we’re fluent in sail, power and commercial.


What we do

50North is your marketing crew, providing all of the strategic, creative and technical input you need to grow your business.

The support you need, when you need it.


You wouldn’t set sail without a chart, would you? We’ll work with you to define your goal and select the best activities to get you there, in budget and on time.


Reach more people and convert more customers. New website, content refresh, SEO, lead automation and online ads – we’ll make it work for you.


Tell your story with compelling copy that converts. PR and media relations, client case studies, brochures, reports, blogs and newsletters.


Customers, stakeholders, donors – make it easy for them to give you their business. We’ll help you improve your customer experience online and in real life.

Social Media

Tame the social media beast by picking the right platforms for your business and having clear objectives. We can run your social accounts or train your team to DIY.


Brand is more than a logo, it’s the values that make customers connect and buy. We’ll help you put the authentic you into your visuals and tone of voice (and logo).
