All about us

Back in 2015, our MD Sarah recognised that there are a huge number of marine businesses in Cornwall and further afield that don’t have the right marketing support. A keen sailor, Sarah knew that the industry has specific requirements, communicates with a certain audience and comes from a strong community with a proud heritage.

Fastnet Marketing grew from Sarah’s desire to offer bespoke marketing solutions to those in the marine industry who needed support and guidance from someone that spoke their language and shared their passion.

We now offer a range of digital marketing services, including branding, website design and build, content creation and event management for a variety of forward-thinking clients from our sunny seaside office near Falmouth, Cornwall.  We are rapidly expanding, and this is an exciting opportunity to add a significant contribution to an up-and-coming business.
