Trawler Videos Become Yacht Brokers’ Go-To Promotion Method

Subscribe to the JMYS YouTube 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. Jeff learned about the powerful reach of YouTube through four videos which Jeff did while with Nordhavn.  In the first three years after release, these three videos had a combined total of 160,000+ views and more people continue to discover and enjoy them every day!

You may also enjoy our series of informational short subject “Trawler Skills” videos. They are designed to explain and illustrate many of the need-to-know aspects of boat handling (check out Physics of Docking) as well as providing how-to guidance for operating common trawler equipment and systems.

I haven’t seen a better presentation of product anywhere, like the informative video’s that you present. You missed your calling Jeff.
As an instructor you have the language, product know how, and ability to get the basics and then some, across with ease. Your presentation
of the 56MS has no equal. As I mentioned before ( I think) that video segment was more than just a look at the nice paint job and kick
the tires. It sold us completely. My wife and I will keep your suggestion in mind. Hope you and your family enjoy this summer. Here in Western Mass.,
we’ve been rained on for nearly a month straight.

“Dear Jeff,
I am a regular follower of your publications.
Thanks a lot for your latest YouTube video with Mike Pizl.
I think videos where you introduce people with their boat would be very very popular.
Congratulations to Mike for fixing his boat on the open sea.

” – Great Nord One video
Always been a fan them. I feel like if PAE had marketed them originally as well as you just did, it may have been a bit more demand. The quiet underway, the aft cockpit safety for sailors and the forward cockpit for outside sailing …. great boat! Good work Jeff!

P.S. Your YouTube videos are excellent.

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!

“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.
