Hatteras GT Ad 1 Marlin

Hatteras Yacht’s newest ad has hit the street.  This piece is for their GT series of sportfishing boats, and encourages readers to visit them at the FLL boat show and see their new GT70.  The photo they chose for this campaign is from a series of high energy shots I took from a chase boat in San Juan harbor.  It was all I could do to hang on to my camera while 40 sportfishing boats powered up and out the inlet during a Bimini start.  This Hatteras GT caught some boat wakes just right and was almost launched while passing in front of El Morro castle.  She landed gently and flew past.

Just back from a trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The goal was to shoot a stable of boats from the custom boat builder F & S Boatworks. By pure chance, three of these boats are tied up in Club Nautico’s marina this month. The perfect time to catch them together and make them shine. While F & S might not be a familiar name in all boating circles yet, it will be soon. This company builds some of the finest looking sportfishing boats on the water. And they are way more than just a pretty face. The craftsmanship and finish work are world class. And good luck trying to catch up with one out on the water. Thanks to the ace pilots from Vertical Solutions based out of the Isla Grande Airport, this two day shoot was like shooting fish in a barrel. It sure helped to luck into a window of spectacular weather. I’ve added a few of these shots to the “Sport fishing Boats/Marine Hardware” gallery of my web site. For a quick glimpse of the trip, check out the mini movie below.
