Incredible that from zero viewers to a ¼ million people from around the world in 12 months. All classic boat lovers who’ve spent more than one million minutes watching  your beautiful boats and listening owners amazing stories.

   We’d like to thank everyone who’ve  generously given their time and effort to allow our cameras on board. You are the backbone to this channel and we really do appreciate it. Not forgetting the folks on land, in the boat yards, brokerages, marinas and yacht clubs who’ve helped us in so many ways.

  This season we shall be doing the same. Searching for more classic boat owners to star in our films. Our aim is to continue producing exclusive high quality content with you in mind. If you’d like to appear in one of our videos or you have an interesting story. Please contact   Bob Aylott 07802 7773737

 End of 2016 Season from myclassicboat founder Bob Aylott

    As we approach the end of this year’s sailing season. It’s a good time to look back at our few months online. Our first season at myclassicboat.com has produced some pretty amazing videos. In the course of shooting and interviewing. I’ve been privileged to have sailed on some incredible yachts with amazing owners. At the time of writing this. More than 250,000 people have viewed our films on YouTube and many more thousands have visited our Facebook page and web site.

Big numbers for us as a new channel focusing on the small niche market of classic boats. Our channel began with the concept of interviewing owners while showing their classic boats in action. We wanted interesting dialogue from real people talking about their passion and their boats. Not just pretty videos of yachts crashing through waves to a background of piped music. We are proud to say we are the only channel world-wide that delivers that winning format.

This winter I’ll be editing another dozen or so videos to be released over the closed season. So watch out, we’ve even more great films coming your way.

As for my personal favorites? That’s impossible to answer, every time I step on a new boat is another adventure and I’m looking forward to many more this year. Now you’ve seen what we do, maybe it’s time for us to film you and your classic boat. Contact us now. Contact

Lastly a big thanks to all the owners who’ve stared in the videos and to everyone who has assisted us in the shooting of our feature films.

Thanks Bob Aylott
