One of the UK’s leading providers of drone aerial photography turned its sights to the seas earlier this month when it was commissioned to capture aerial footage of a luxury yacht. Using next generation drone equipment UAViate was able to record aerial HD video of a 40-foot Nautitech catamaran worth £400,000. The result was helicopter-style footage without the sky-high price tag.

Uaviate Drone Captures Birds Eye Footage Of Nautitech 40.

With the help of British-based film and storytelling group, Fiction Foundry, the footage was captured using UAViate’s pioneering aviation technology. The strategic partnership with the forward-thinking film production company was carried out on behalf of Key Yachting Ltd, an exclusive UK distributor for J Boats, Grand Soleil, Tofinou and Nautitech catamarans throughout the UK and Ireland.

Professional editing, custom-composed music and lots of creativity have contributed to a great marketing campaign. The footage will be showcased at Key Yachting’s stand at the upcoming 2015 London Boat Show. The video will also be published on the UAViate website in January.
