CLASSIC YACHT .TV

One of Emily’s first branded content video pieces retold a day on board the famously authentic, restored classic yacht ALTAIR racing the equally immaculate MARIQUITA, possibly two of the most well known classics in the world. Jim Thom’s narration as [then] captain of the legendary MARIQUITA gave this video real insight on his career as it came to an end with the yacht. Classic Yacht TV achieved dramatic racing scenes and exclusive footage from on board privately owned ALTAIR, intimacy and sentimental values in executing a very emotional interview with Jim Thom, an internationally acclaimed captain.

In 2013 CYTV worked with James Lawrence Sail makers, Spetses Classic Yacht Race, and working for an owner’s representative on schooner KELPIE OF FALMOUTH’s restoration. Producing, directing, distributing short form videos to chronicle the journey of her restoration through to her launch and when her Mediterranean racing campaign became fully established.

Emily's experience really stems from after graduating, with a BA (Hons) in Photography Emily jumped in the deep end, freelancing as a photographer and contributing writer for Classic Boat magazine, successfully kicking off her stint working within the yachting press. Her first feature and cover in 2010, marked the beginning of a number of years shooting editorially, including having 18 cover shots. Importantly, this also launched Emily into the commercial sphere – undertaking various marketing roles, PR, digital design, events in the marine industry.

Through a growing call for video production and distribution in this niche, an on-going request for video marketing strategy, frequency in digital publication and placement and additional marketing needs Emily has developed CYTV’s client base. Now working with Sandeman Yacht Company – the world’s most specialised, personal and holistic classic and vintage yacht broker; leading and ecologically conscious UK marina – classic restoration hub, Suffolk Yacht Harbour; Charter yachts, world-class mast makers Collars, owners requesting private commissions, charities and international classic yachting events.

In 2012 Emily’s vision was to set up a classic yacht and sailing lifestyle website that embraces the explosion of video and immersive media. Last year [2017] Classic Yacht TV’s audience and reach grew by 30% and this year we begin to introduce more extensive services – packages in production and marketing campaigns as well as continuing to publish beautiful stories of real people and their existence on board boats with rich histories.
