Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a drone! We have all seen them floating in the sky and thought ‘wow, that’s cool’. For years they have been for the supreme enthusiasts, but now their popularity with the general consumer is rapidly rising and for good reason. There are in fact lots of awesome benefits of having a drone onboard a yacht. So, how can you as a crew member put these drones to work?
With their ability to hold cameras such as GoPro’s and DSLR’s, you can really capture life at sea like never before. Capture footage to document your guest's journey as it unfolds, whether it’s a fun-filled day using the toys or a more relaxing day spent sunbathing on the stern deck. Perhaps producing a highlight reel for them to reflect on and relive their yachting experience would be a nice little touch and leave them wanting more.
Capturing memories and cool footage aren’t the only benefits though. A drone is more than just a fun gadget to play with, and they can be just as useful for crew as they can be for guests. You can trust them to carry out some important tasks onboard such as safety inspections, rescue operations, and geographical mapping.
Their speedy setup and launch mean they are airborne within minutes and ready to undertake operations, in some situations saving you time and proving to be a more convenient option. Even if you’re just curious about what the sea conditions are like just around the headland, you can always count on your trusty drone to check it out.
We think a drone justifies its place onboard as they prove to add some real value to both guests and crew. It’s certainly a gadget that needs to be considered and we can help you with just that. We can provide you with information and costs of various different models. Just get in touch with our friendly team here – or ask your Relationship Manager directly.
