Stills & Media Photography Boat Hire
Specialist driver skills for marine photography.
Official Supplier to London 2012 Olympic Games
CRC has significant experience in providing photography boats suitable for still photography particularly for sailing events. We were selected as the Official Supplier to the 2012 London Olympic Games and provided 24 Ribs with drivers for photographers at the Olympic sailing venue in Weymouth. CRC has provided media boats to The America’s Cup, Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, The J Class Association, Clipper Ventures, JP Morgan Round the Island Race, Vendee Globe, Route de Rhum and the Extreme 40 circuit amongst others.
Boats Suitable for Marine Photography
We operate fast and agile Ribs which are uncharacteristically dry and (because they are built to a commercial offshore standard), surprisingly stable. Our smaller cabin Ribs have no ‘A’ frame giving uninterrupted sight lines as well as shelter for storing equipment and changing lenses etc. Most photographers welcome the jockey seats on our open Ribs for the hands-free bracing that they provide but seats may be removed if required.
Specialist Driver Skills for Marine Photography
CRC have built up considerable expertise in working around fast sailing craft whether single or multi hull. We understand sailing and know when to be out of the way but equally we can place you a metre in front of a Volvo race boat doing 30 knots when required. Acclaimed international marine photographer Mark Lloyd states:
“I have used CRC exclusively for over 10 years; I just wouldn’t contemplate going to anybody else. They have the best boats and the best drivers.”
