Times are Changing

More than ever, yacht owners and captains are on the hunt for new, and exciting cruising grounds. From the tropical island-magic of the Indian and South Pacific Oceans, to the icy rugged waters of the Arctic surrounding Canada, Iceland and Norway. 

Along with these new destinations comes the desire to have this once in a lifetime journey documented, and documented well ...

As an up-and-coming, award-winning filmmaker, with his eyes (and lens) set on the horizon, Shelton envisioned an unmet need in the industry. In early 2017 , he launched LuxuryYachtFilms.com.

BIO

Shelton, an active, easy-going surfer who's passionate about film, is thrilled about this new venture! He gets along with all walks of life, and believes there is always a story behind the person you're talking to. 

His ambitions in film are complemented with 10 years’ experience as crew, a captain’s license (MCA Masters 3000GT), FAA Drone Licence, PADI Dive Masters and Advanced Freediver Cert, making for a truly unique product and unsurpassed luxury service.
