MÉR Companies

dbs-header-demo

More than direction. More than ideas.

A more complete business partner. MÉR is a full-service, full-spectrum business and marketing resource that helps its clients identify, plan, and execute success opportunities. To do so, we focus on several key areas that well exceed the scope of a typical marketing or branding ‘agency'. The result is better ideas that smooth out the rough seas for your brand in the marketplace. While product innovation can be a game changer for our clients, ingenuity in how that product or service is marketed—and how its unique business and marketing challenges are solved—can translate to even greater game changing results in the marketplace. The MÉR Companies team is committed to finding solutions to your brand's unique challenges that, frankly, others might not even consider. It is in these leaps to more creative solutions where competitive advantages are born, and opportunities are seized. Our three divisions can be engaged either separately or together, allowing us to tailor solutions to suit need and budget levels in ways clients can truly appreciate. Because we know that sometimes less is more, and other times, more is more.

We're not like most companies. We have greater depth...which is a function of our team's multi-dimensional experience. We're a consultancy...but much broader than that. We're a branding agency...but far deeper than that. We're a material solutions provider...but more diverse than that. We are a multi-faceted group of companies which can be engaged separately–or in combination–to precisely match your needs. We tailor ourselves to fit you because, in the world of bringing products to market, one size does not fit all, and being a one trick pony simply won't cut it.

Cruising: Old Sailors Never Die

“Old sailors never die, they just get a little dinghy.” It may be a hoary old joke, but one of my problems at age 79 is I can no longer get easily in and out of a little dinghy, and neither can my (several years younger than me) wife. For this, and various other reasons I will ...read more

Chartering: Swan Song in the BVI

Joseph Conrad once wrote, “The sea never changes.” And while this may or not be true, something most definitely not open for debate is the fact we sailors, “wrapped in mystery,” as Conrad put it, are continually changing—whether we like it or not. I found myself thinking these ...read more

Boat Review: Fountaine-Pajot Aura 51

If you can sell more than 150 catamarans off-plan before the resin has even hit the fiberglass, you must be doing something right. Despite costing around $1.1 million once fitted out and on the water, Fountaine-Pajot’s new 51 has done just that. The French yard has been at it ...read more
