Ahoy Central has left the moorings and has been on a several month shakedown cruise. A few things have been tweaked and a new features added. We have just added a diverse sailing news RSS feed on our home page for anyone to use. Take a look!
Improvements: Have added a case studies page and slight redesign on Home page.
The GOLD subscription plan is normally $49.50/yearly. For Facebook followers you can use the coupon code FB50 for a 50% savings.
As a token of your appreciation, please share this post to any friends and family with interests in sailing, cruising, or any other maritime activities!
To better help first-time visitors get a feel for how Ahoy Central services may be used, a new page has been added. This page is called “Case Studies”. Here, it shows a number of different maritime scenarios and how Ahoy Central can be of assistance. This, along with the Website Tutorial can give a visitor a good feel of what’s behind the curtain, so to speak.

Ahoy everyone. It is our pleasure to announce the public access to our new website, Ahoy Central. The site has been in development for a number of months, with a lot of features being incorporated. We think the result is pretty nice and we hope you do too. Since Ahoy Central is a community-based service, much of the the future functionality and content will be member-driven. So, do you have a great bar or restaurant at a favorite port? A trusted marina or boat service business? Or even useful online links or products you have had a good experience with? Any suggestions on additional features you would like to see – let us know.
If you are a business serving the maritime industry, then this is a great place for you! For just a subscription of $19.50 yearly, you may have a nice business listing, access to unlimited classified ads, and the ability to chat with potential customers.
If you are a blue-water traveler and are gone for extended lengths of time without contact with the friends and family back home, then encouraging them to subscribe to the Friends & Family plan ($10 yearly), will allow them to keep in contact with you and see the progress of your travels. What a comfort to the both of you.
We launch with a large array of tools and services for mariners of all stripes. However, it will just get better from here on as we get the input from our traveling members, so keep your eyes open and check here often.
Final development and testing has been under way for weeks now and it looks like we are close! Waiting on some programmer tweaks on a few important features. Overall, we are pretty happy with the overall functionality of the site.
