Thornton, PA (PRWEB) December 9, 2005
Marine.com LLC. acquired the intellectual property assets of Marinenet Corp.; including the SailNet.com Web site community. SailNet.com has been recognized as one of Forbes Magazine’s “Best of the Web” four years in a row for its content, resources and community.
“SailNet.com has long been recognized as one of the leading online resources for sailors,” Rob Proctor founder and CEO of Marine.com and an avid sailor, said. “We are focused on expanding the site’s resources and have aggressive plans to enhance the community features of the SailNet.com Web site. It is our belief that we can serve our sailing enthusiasts best by focusing on the community resources that have long been at the heart of the SailNet experience, while providing the SailNet community preferential access to an enhanced and expanded SailNet online superstore” Proctor added.
The parent company of the SailNet web community, Marinenet Corp., filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in July 2005. The primary and most visible asset of Marinenet Corp was the award-winning SailNet web community. Despite the similarity in names there is no relationship between Marine.com LLC. and the dissolved Marinenet Corp.
