Trawler Videos Become Yacht Brokers’ Go-To Promotion Method

Subscribe to my channel 

 

Let’s face it, most of us would probably rather see the movie than read the book.  The proliferation of videos on the internet, kicked off with the wild popularity of You Tube, but also gaining traction on Vimeo and other portals has made it easy for anyone with a palm sized camera to shoot some footage and post it for the world to see.   We are entranced by screens and they are inescapable – small screens on our smart phones, computers, in our cars and on our boats, larger viewing screens on our home televisions and the delight of enjoying the latest Hollywood release on the big screen in the theatre.  In the trawler world we are starting to see more and more brokers use this form of promotion (trawler videos) to attract attention to their listings. I learned about the powerful reach of YouTube through four videos which I did while with Nordhavn.  In just over three years they have a combined total of 160,000+ views with more people discovering them each day.

(Nordhavn 35 St. Helena – November, 2017)

“Jeff,
This may be your best video yet!  Very well done.  Especially the intro camera angles & the smooth camera work as it rises up!  Dig it!
Charlie H.”

 
(Nordhavn 55 Terrapin – October, 2017)

“Hi Jeff,
Just wanted to reach out to say your Terrapin video is delightful, better than anything on the Nordhavn site.
Many thanks to you and your video team for a wonderful tour of Terrapin.
Frank T.”
