Midnight Boats builds high-performance powerboats and needed digital muscle to match their engines. We navigated them through a total site redesign with a best-in-class dev stack, plus a first-in-the-industry boat builder that has customers turning heads (and buying boats).

Building a Boat Builder

To truly part the seas, we used 3D modeling to offer what no competitor had: a video game-esque boat builder. Fully interactive, entirely customizable, and easily shareable with a simple URL. It’s a differentiator that’s driving eyes, engagement, and orders.
