Ahoy! Icon Films to explore the Big Business of Big Boats for Channel 4

Channel 4 Factual Entertainment docks a commission for ‘Multi Million Pound Mega-Yachts’ (w/t)

Channel 4 has commissioned Bristol based production company, Icon Films to produce a 1x60’ behind the scenes look at the super-exclusive world of the South of France’s yachting community.

At least 60m in length, the mega-yachts docked along the affluent ports and harbours on the Mediterranean coast are pinnacles of wealth, luxury and opulence. This film will be meeting the super-wealthy owners, the crew, cutting-edge designers, builders and brokers of these incredible yachts.

The film will follow the big business of big boats across one summer season as they gear up for the The Monaco Yacht Show in September. Taking place in Monaco’s Port Herculé, it is the centre of the yachting universe and moors some of the largest, most expensive and most glamorous mega-yachts in the Mediterranean.

Speaking on the commission, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, Lucy Leveugle said:

"This insight into mega-yachts is remarkable access to the experiences of the global elite. It will follow the stories of people who all contribute to this very contemporary symbol of wealth."

TCB Media Rights will distribute the programme.

Multi Million Pound Mega-yachts (w/t) will air later this year on Channel 4
