Commercial /Film, TV and Media


SRC have wide experience in film and media work. Typical assignments include major maritime events such as the America’s Cup, the 2012 Olympics, Diamond Jubilee Thames River Pageant, Clipper around the world race starts etc. We also have considerable experience in feature films (credits include Quantum of Solace), Television work as well as live broadcast for News media.

BBC Registered Supplier

We are a registered supplier with the BBC, and other media organisations. We have developed a reputation for supporting swimming events and credits include the David Walliams Thames swim as well as Sean Conway’s wild swim filmed along the length of the south coast.

Insurance cover

Uniquely our full commercial insurance policy extends to cover all those on board the boats engaged in their professional roles (photographers, camera operators, journalists, production crew) as opposed to the more typical ‘passenger’ insurance which provides no cover for those working.


We have a wide range of boats suitable for all manner of film and media work. We own boats coded by the port of London Authority for filming on the Thames, low draft jet drive boats for shallow water and tenders suitable for inland flood zones. Our large boats are fast stable and dry; several of our Ribs have cabins to provide both power supply and protection for inshore and offshore filming.

Skilled Skippers

Many of our top skippers are not only highly experienced sailors (some former Olympic development squad) but have been driving professionally for many years. Several famous international marine photographers will only use us knowing that we will place a boat with complete confidence in the best possible position in complete safety with consummate skill.
