Boat Nation

The Maritime Foundation

HM the Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in LondonThe Maritime Media Awards are presented to individual journalists, writers, broadcasters and film producers who have made an outstanding contribution to the public understanding and awareness of maritime matters.

Specially commissioned for the 2014 Maritime Media Awards Boat Nation looks at pleasure craft and yachting in the UK. From small dinghies and ribs to large multi-million pound yachts.

The production involved filming on the Isle of Wight and Cornwall. To add an extra perspective to the photography we used a combination of small sports action cameras and drone footage.

The film was well received at the Media Awards and has subsequently been used on the foundations website.
