Need template that will help create webpages.

Hi – I haven’t done any web design or posted here for a looooong time – and I’ve forgotten quite a bit of what I used to know. Therefore, I'm asking my question in this “newbie” section of the site…

I have purchased a responsive, html5 theme from StudioPress and I am putting together a website about yachts. I need to first list various yacht manufacturers … and then break down individual yachts by model/name (from each manufacturer). Each yacht will therefore have it’s own webpage (all pages with the same layout) listing things such as the yacht’s length, speed, range, year launched, a large/main pic, some expandable thumbnail pics, and lots of additional information.

Ideally, I would like to have some type of template/form where I could add all this info for each individual yacht … and it would magically create the corresponding yacht’s page.

Is there some type of WordPress plugin … or is there some existing template that I could tweak for my needs … or would this need to be “built” from scratch using PHP, Javascript, etc.?

Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!

Sorry to see you haven't had any feedback on this transat99. Have you made any decision about the best way forward yet?

Wordpress would be a good way to go. I've only worked a little with Wordpress but directly injecting content into a database or auto-generating a page isn't so hard and doesn't break the WP functionality. There's also a huge bunch of templates to choose from and a large community to answer your questions.

If you like I can move this post to the WP forum as people there will be more familiar with the kinds of plugins available that may save you digging into code.
