Saltwater Stone has worked with hundreds of clients in the maritime industry and beyond. Many of our current clients have been with us for years.
From start-ups to large international corporations regardless of size or scope, they all have one thing in common – a commitment to communicating clearly to their markets. Which is why they choose to partner with Saltwater Stone.
We’re delighted to work with Saltwater; they understand the marine industry, their boating media network of contacts, responsiveness to requests and speed of delivery is impressive. Not only that, we have been comfortable to engage them directly with our own clients, and they’re lovely people to boot!

As our global maritime PR agency, Saltwater Communications works closely alongside the marina team and our other marketing partners to develop and support our campaigns. The fully integrated PR and Social Media approach includes media relations and market communications as well as management of a number of Social Media profiles to engage with different audiences including boat owners, captains, crew, visitors, potential visitors and industry colleagues.

Throughout the years Cobham SATCOM’s collaboration with Saltwater Communications has evolved from traditional PR work, to including many other marketing and communication tasks, including Social Media, Partner Communication, Advertising, Sponsorships and Web content. Together with an extensive knowledge and understanding of the maritime industry, their drive, flexibility, and ability to navigate within our organisation has been invaluable to us. Saltwater supports our ambition to constantly develop and push our maritime marketing efforts.

We use Saltwater simply because the work they do for us is excellent. They understand the oil & gas business totally and are extremely service minded.

Fairline Boats - previous client
Avon and Zodiac Marine have worked with Saltwater for many years for both our PR and advertising needs. We have always found them to be highly enthusiastic about their work, going that little bit further to satisfy the customer, which makes all the difference and exactly fits our own ethos of quality and value.
ZODIAC MARINE & POOL - previous client
We selected Saltwater after launching our app in 2014 and after six months we had become the most searched for and most popular marine sailing app for a logbook on iTunes. Saltwater assigned a dedicated PR professional who spent time testing and using our product. They also implemented a positive campaign positioning the product across a wide range of online and print media using their excellent marine industry contacts.

We are extremely pleased with the results from working with Saltwater Stone. The team exceeded our expectations – we didn’t give them much to go on but they managed to take what we had in our minds eye and expand it to the next level. Really looking forward to developing the project further in the coming months and beyond – highly recommended.
