Brief guide to the updated site
Share

The best Russian-language Internet portal about yachts and yachting has passed the global refit in «docks of» leading programmers and web-designers. We have worked hard to make our site even more beautiful, more convenient, even more useful for everyone who was «bitten by yachting». Here we will tell you what has actually changed.

Adaptive design

itBoat can now be read on any device - from 4K monitors to mobile phones. We did not make the mobile version, we went further and made an adaptive design. The graphics are optimized for different types of screens, including Retina.

Home page

Previously, the main page of itBoat was almost entirely devoted to one of our fields of activity - journalistic. ItBoat today is much more than just a yachting media. It is a huge, constantly updated catalogue with more than 4 thousand models from 490 world manufacturers, divided by categories. It is a marketplace where anyone can place an advertisement for the sale of a boat or find a dream boat using the convenient search form. Finally, it is a luxury yacht charter service in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi and South-East Asia. Now all these components are reflected on the main page of the site.

Magazine

The first screen is a magazine, which opens up a beautiful new slider with the main materials of the week. Click on the arrow or just swipe left to scroll through all the stories. The latest boat news - as always, in the left-hand column. On the right, there are photos of the day, fliers and photo galleries. More publications - go to the magazine» by click «or to the corresponding item in the main menu of the site.

We rethought the navigation of the log»section«. This section used to mix the types of materials and headings to which they relate. Now everything is logical: four types of publications - news, articles, photo of the day and photo galleries - four subsections. And the headings, which include only our large materials, naturally moved to the subsection of the «article». For ease of navigation, we have brought the most popular hashtags of publications to the main magazine.

News has its own icons, and photo galleries have the ability to view in full screen mode. Just double-click on any photo in the gallery to view it in detail. If it's more convenient for you to have all the photos listed on one page - no problem, we've made a button to «Show All».

Contact us and offer news now without leaving the site in a special form. If you conduct regattas, build boats, if you are a yachtsman or owner ... in short, if you are in love with yachting and you have a story to tell like-minded people, write us about it. A special communication form will open when you click on the banner on the right.

Catalog

The latest added to the catalogue of yacht and boat models, popular categories and brands are now displayed on the homepage.

Functionally the catalogue has also been transformed: now you can search for models by many different parameters, including length, hull type and material, cost, type of drive and motor, add your favorite models in comparison. It is possible to compare not only new boats, but also used models, which are offered for sale in our market - both with each other and with each other. Thanks to this feature, you can make many curious discoveries, such as how much a boat loses in price with age.

Market

Scroll down to the «market» block on the main page, it's super handy. All fresh ads are filtered by the most important parameters - price, year of issue, earnings, name and length - and displayed directly on the main page. Your ad will be impossible not to notice. On the left side there is a search form that allows you to search for yachts by price, size, model, manufacturer and type. Popular in the market - quick access to the best offers.

It became much more convenient to place boat ads in the market - we «combed» and improved the form for filling out. And the ad itself now looks cool with elements of visual data: each type of engine, material or hull type corresponds to an icon, quantitative characteristics are presented by scales. By comparing several proposals from the market, you can understand at a glance, which of the boats is the fastest or most economical. Model descriptions have been moved from catalogue to market. On the main page of the market there is a tab «of new offers» with the latest added ads.

Charterly

A piece of the sea in the basement of ItBoat is a block dedicated to the Charterly luxury yacht charter service. The most popular charter offers can be viewed in the carousel, and for more information - go to the boat card in the Charterly section.

Ben, ay ned help!

Before the launch, we caught a hundred and five hundred buggies by the small editorial staff, but we know that there's a particularly malicious louse somewhere. So at the end of every piece of material, we screwed on the bug»report form«. And we're really looking forward to feedback from you, because there's no limit to perfection!
