The Knot Agency is not your average marketing agency. We are a collective of talented strategists, creatives, wordsmiths, language people, techies, number crunchers, people-people, thinkers, disruptors, sailors and more, but most importantly, everyone is a do-er.  


We understand the boating marketplace, we know how the customer thinks.  You pay us to do a job and we get on and do it!  We’re there as much as you need us, with a flexible approach to suit your needs and no contracts to sign in blood - unless you really want to!


We’re not just marketeers. We’ve stood in your shoes as a country manager, chemist, business development manager, sales rep and marketing manager on your side of the fence.  We understand the challenges you face and demands on your time, so we often form close relationships and become an integral part of your team, without the HR headaches.

"I started The Knot Agency in 2016 after ten years of sales and marketing in the yacht division at one of the most well known paint manufacturers in the world working with the leisure and super yacht market segments.

The diversity of our client base means no day is the same and getting up wondering what fresh challenges the day will bring is exciting. I consider myself lucky to work in such a friendly industry where we all go about our days helping thousands of boaters enjoy their leisure time."
