I regularly observe boats of all kinds docked near my home, off Dominica's south west coastal village, Newtown. Catamarans, yachts, sailboats, motor boats, etc. have all spent some time offshore.
This particular vessel struck me though, because it was obviously in the luxury category. Its modern design, clean lines and the helipad on its bow fueled my suspicions. I figured the owners (or maybe the renters?) planned on spending their Christmas in Dominica's waters.
To be honest, I had no intention of capturing any images that day. However I could tell that the sunset would be a great one so I sent up the drone after all, to see what I could create.
I later found out that the yacht was indeed a mega yacht called Symphony. The video above gives a few details about it. Even though the light was low that evening, I was still able to create a few beautiful images, three of which are shown below:
