Hotbox Studios is now providing web design and web hosting services for the Rival Owners Association.

The Rival Owners Association (ROA) was Founded in 1974 by Peter Brett, the designer of the Rival. The ROA is an Association of past and present owners of Rival yachts, with the aim of promoting friendly contact between owners and crews worldwide. The ROA offers help and encouragement to all Rival owners, whether in their home waters or undertaking long distance cruises, as well as those looking to buy a Rival. The ROA also provides a forum for discussion about alterations to existing boats and advice regarding completion of hulls.

We've been working with the ROA to help them move their web hosting over to Hotbox Studios. Following the transfer of their online services we've continued to work with the ROA to update the design and functionality of their website.

Recent updates to the ROA website have included:

  • Redesigning the frontend of the current ROA website to a Responsive Web Design (RDW) to allow for the website’s content to be delivered predictably to visitors irrespective of device e.g. notebook, desktop, smartphone or tablet.
  • Creating an archive section for the website’s regular newsletter allowing for previous newsletters to be easily viewed and downloaded.
