Marine Filming Cornwall and Beyond
I was flattered and amazed to find a YouTube page dedicated to all our boating videos They have created a whole catalogue of our history of marine filming in Cornwall and beyond.
Motor Boat and Yachting Magazine have collated them all as a special collection. And seeing them together brought back some great memories.
The Great Motorboat Tour
Our first big adventure was a circumnavigation of the British Isles in 2010 on my Sealine 34 Shark Bay. That series of articles and videos was published by now defunct Motor Boats Monthly magazine.
The Great Motorboat Tour Biscay
How to follow that up? Having gone round Britain, our eyes turned South, and we headed down through Biscay on Shark Bay to the north of Spain.
After that, on our next adventure we explored the Irish Sea and some of the Scottish Islands – the regions we had missed on our Round Britain trip. The magazine titled this “Celtic Crusade”.
A new boat – Cecienne
Because with the arrival of our new boat Cecienne we had bigger challenges. I’d seen a Princess 39 in a marina in Southampton and it was love at first sight. So I eventually found one for sale in Majorca. With low engine hours and immaculate condition she was perfect. So we flew out and brought her home. Plus we included a stopover in Morocco, passing through the Straits of Gibraltar, and heading north. So the magazine called resulting series “The Long Way Home.”
On our next adventure we reached Norway’s Lofoten Islands, taking Cecienne north of the Arctic Circle.
Secret Devon and Cornwall
Because of covid we spent a summer closer to home, exploring our local seas. And as a result we produced our “Secret Cornwall” and Secret Devon” suite of videos.
And to Russia
Perhaps the most ambitious trip was our voyage to St. Petersburg in Russia, heading through the Baltic just after the winter pack ice had melted. For this reason MBY’s creative team called this series “To Russia With Love”.
Our latest project
Our 3 part “Irish Adventure” has just been released. This documents our exploration of Ireland’s south west coast. And we were blessed with amazing weather throughout our trip to this amazing location.
So in conclusion – we have already planned the destination and route. Plus the articles and videos are already commissioned. So watch this space!
