New Video category being tested by YachtVid

While editing a full tour video for the 66″ Selene Ocean Trawler we kept coming back to one particular drone shot.  It was the second to last drone shot from that day.  We watched this clip initially to discover the perfect sections to add to the full tour video for the yacht broker who represents this yacht for sale, Hampton Yacht Group.  What happened though is that we kept watching the video clip over and over just because it was simply beautiful.  YachtVid exists because we are mesmerized by boats and this clip did some mesmerizing on us.  The opportunity to watch the Escapade from an eagle’s point of view was relaxing and a perfect way to punch out for a few minutes.  We were also studying the video to critique our drone operating and there is very little to complain about during this long shot.

So the decision was made to make a publishable video for the YachtVid YouTube channel, which we did just today.  See it here.  Selene 66′ one take running shot.   As we move forward into 2016 our drone, dubbed YachtVid1 will be seeing more and more action.  If the response to the one shot Selene 66′ video is good we will continue to make extended running shots videos like that as a channel feature.

Please give us your feedback on a video like this.  We’re going against the tide in this age of A.D.D. but hope that our viewers – and buyers! – will enjoy the opportunity to get lost in their thoughts and dreams as they watch this.

Drone Police in Japan

Police in Japan have come up with an interesting way to deal with the possibility that drones might be used for nefarious purposes.  Drones with nets attached.  It’s just a matter of time before drones become regulated but in the mean time YachtVid will continue to shoot with the utmost care and consideration.

Two boat shows open today on the West Coast.

Two fun, informative and entertaining boat shows open today on the west coast.

In southern California we have the Newport Beach Boat Show and Trawlerfest.

Busy weeks ahead. Upcoming projects on the West Coast.

It’s going to be a handful but we have a lot of business coming up in the coming weeks.

First off is a project for NWExplorations.  They run a charter operation that boasts a superb fleet of Grand Banks Yachts and are kicking off the 2015 summer cruising season with a bare boat flotilla to Alaska.  We are going to make a video for them that highlights the wonders of cruising to such a pristine area of the world and at the same time answers some frequently asked questions from their charter guests.  The story we are most hoping to show and tell is the experience of  “shedding off the burdens of everyday life” by the lucky guests who will be venturing forth from Bellingham Bay on May 18’th.

Read up on the flotilla here.  2015 MOTHER GOOSE TO ALASKA.

Next up is a brand new model from Horizon Yachts. The V80.  This is a 20 knot cruise speed yacht with ample room for entertaining and relaxing.  If you have not already SUBSCRIBE to YachtVid’s youtube channel so you don’t miss any of these videos when they are released.  Check out some more information about the new V80 here.  PASSAGEMAKER MAGAZINE ON THE V80

After that we have an interesting listing by James Nason at the San Diego office of Fraser Yachts in San Diego.  It is an 80′ power catamaran that has well over 100k nm under her keel.  We hope to expose this listing, tell her story and find a buyer.  This is an under appreciated offering on the market and we hope to change that.  Find out what you can about MOANA HERE and once again SUBSCRIBE to yachtvid on youtube so you don’t miss the informative and entertaining action yacht video of this adventure yacht when it is ready to be published.  You will be the first of your friends to see it!

Alexander Marine USA just took in a super clean 64′ Ocean Alexander at their San Diego office and we will be filming that as well.  Check it out of YachtWorld here OCEAN ALEXANDER 64 IN SAN DIEGO

Last but certainly not least is a 50′ Maritimo.  Wait until you see the master cabin in this fast and rugged sport yacht.  Listed for sale by Maritimo dealers Hampton Yacht Group.  Get the specs here:  50′ MARITIMO.
