Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

Superyacht Stories #1

22 July 2015

This is Jaime Guerreiro…one of the stars of the superyacht film we’ve just finished for Seafarers UK. Jaime is learning his craft aboard a fabulous vintage motoryacht. (Can’t name her as the highly professional Captain of the ship – who went to a cargo-hold full of trouble to get us (50) the gig – asked us not to. Fair enough!) Anyway, a great day out from Falmouth aboard this beauty, owned by a very high net-worth guy (or is it gal? Don’t know, also confidential!) We filmed Jaime doing a multitude of tasks on board, from splicing ropes to driving a RIB (50) (rigid inflatable boat.) What came through clear as a bell was the pride all the (mostly young) crew had in their ship, and the firm but friendly leadership of the Captain. All made for what everyone wants – a “happy ship”.(40)
