Seen off West Seattle: More helicopter-and-boat photography

Thanks to Nicole for the photo – this caught some eyes on the water off West Seattle’s western shores early this evening. Reminds us of the photo shoot last month involving a boat built for the Tunisian Navy. But according to our friends at Beach Drive Blog, who had a front-row seat this time, the helicopter clearly had a camera mount and the name on the yacht began with Endurance. BDB wondered if it might be one of these yachts. (Maybe the E720?)

    Anyone know what the yacht is in the sound that has a large print of the England flag on the side?

    It sure looked like the boat in that link.

    I’m not chased by photographers in a helicopter often…but when I am it’s in a new Endurance 658 by Hampton Yachts.

    Thanks! If you do more of these and are able, consider letting us know ahead of time so we can get the best possible shots of you getting great shots etc. … “what’s that out there on the water?” is one of the questions we are asked most often. – TR
