Just a few examples of our work

Perhaps the next example could be yours...

The full body of work in marketing, publicity, advertising and PR for the marine and superyacht market created by the Owen team, over many decades, is substantial. Something we are very proud of.

We are now digital veterans, working hard to address the continuous changes in multi-channel marketing and the growing list of digital applications we see today and radically surprising ones round the corner that we are working on.

Our international client base illustrates the breadth of our knowledge and experience making us the authority in marine marketing.

Each brand logo you will see on the home page represents a client for whom, in most cases, we have produced substantial marketing support and material over many years, including detailed marketing and brand strategy.

Here are just three examples to illustrate our extensive abilities.

Royal Huisman for three decades

How can you distil 35 years of marketing excellence into just a few words? The milestones and achievements have been numerous as Owens developed the Huisman brand strategy and tone-of-voice and guided their marketing journey during the growth years of this iconic shipyard.

Our legacy can be seen in the material we have produced for Huisman over the decades. We photographed and produced brochures and books for most of the world class yachts built at the Huisman Shipyard and we were also supporting them on their brand design transition to the Royal Huisman Shipyard and currently Royal Huisman. We also created the well known and respected Brand Identity for their sister company, RONDAL which can be seen inscribed on all their products.

Brand positioning and brand personality has been key to our successful support for Huisman using many of the key marketing channels. We developed the creative materials and provided the tools to showcase the shipyard in the USA, Europe and the Far East with major presentations, some resulting in new yacht orders , we helped organise press trips to the yard and support for yacht launches. Owen in-house video and presentation professionals providing the staging. The Owens team also supported the PR representation.

We generated content for the international press with editorial and photography, with many front covers including several for Boat International, Showboats and Boote Exclusiv, supported by a very cost-saving media buying programme for display advertising. We also designed and produced many memorable exhibition stands and booths at the main international boat shows over this period.

The Owen marine and superyacht team that has serviced Royal Huisman for this amazing journey is still in place and ready for new challenges.

Hill Robinson, sets the pace in Monaco

Having known Nick Hill and Niall Robinson from previous business relationships and watching the steady development and success of Hill Robinson Yacht Management enterprise, we were very pleased to be hired in June 2013. Our remit was to refresh their brand and market positioning then inject a creative approach into their global marketing journey.

And what a journey it has been, as Owens engaged with Hill Robinson to expand the marketing channels to help grow the exceptional managed yacht fleet, supported by new offices globally and specialist management teams creating a unique offering to owners, captains and crew.

Being a full-service marketing agency, Owens was able to engage with all the marketing requirements including Direct Marketing tools, like their very successful HarbouR news magazine, which we research and write, together with digital support developing the website and other multi-media channels. Our PR team research, write and produce content for printed, on-line marketing and yacht show presence.

A1 Yachting, a Greek Odyssey

By now you will appreciate our client base is truly international, and an example of this is our work for our Greek customer, A1 Yacht Trade Consortium who provide extensive luxury yacht services in Greece, operating from many locations, employing in excess of 60 staff. Being part of an alliance with BWA, the leading superyacht concierge company, A1 reach out to a global footprint with office representation in most main superyacht locations.

Owens were asked in 2016 to look at a rebranding exercise for the whole A1 enterprise that now includes a shipyard and marina in Rhodes, our remit included signage, uniforms and a new website, although initially our first task a few years prior to this was to design and produce a hard-bound book called 'Hellas Bound'. This luxury publication is gifted to superyachts visiting Greek waters and available in some of the finest hotels in Athens and the Greek islands. 'Hellas Bound' edition 6 will soon be in production with us for Spring 2018.
