01

The Challenge

Being avid fans of yachting, our clients are used to spending lots of time afloat. That’s when they felt the lack of specialised service for sea travellers. At that time, they had to use multiple apps and websites to prepare for the next trip: check the forecast, find restaurants nearby, discover fuel prices, etc. That’s how the idea was born – to collect all required information for sea travellers into one service: Sea Guide.

Sea – for marine, Guide – for wanderer.

The Solution

Use cases

Home page

Welcome to the ratings-based and crowd-sourced local guide to everything on the water!

The first thing you see is a large map showing your current location. You can start exploring the nearby marine locations right away- which is the project’s main idea.

We brought the “pin” option to the first screen in order to encourage users to expand the database of useful places, businesses, locations, and yachts.

We also added the EXPLORE-DISCOVER-SHARE section, where you can read the latest news and experiences from the Sea Guide Tribe.

User profile

We tried to create a tight community, a Tribe of like-minded seafarers. For this reason, only registered users can see members’ profiles. After logging in, you can get detailed information and see all pins added by the user.

Location pin page

Our goal was to create a useful and comprehensible guide to sailing spots. We added a detailed description for each location, including opening hours (if possible), rating, infrastructure, and types of boats that can be moored.

We also added a search for related locations and reviews. This function is called to help users choose the best places of interest on their sea voyages.

Location types

  • Diving/snorkelling
  • Marina/yacht club
  • Mooring service
  • Hazards and warnings
  • Airport or ferry
  • Port of entry
  • Anchorage
  • Beaches
  • Fishing spots
  • Must-see/sightseeing
  • Surf sports
Business pin page

Experienced sailors know how challenging it might be to find the required service in an unfamiliar place. That’s why we created a special section from where members can search for required facilities, contact them, or add them to favorites for the next trip. This function greatly facilitates trip planning and helps find required facilities in urgent need.

Admin panel

All user-generated content provided on Sea Guide can be verified through the admin panel. This function is called to protect from spam and ensure that all the information is helpful, verified, and true to life.

Additionally, the admin panel provides broad user management options to fend off bots and ban spam accounts.
