The Boaters TV Becomes #1 Boating Video Podcast in U.S.: Views in Excess of 50,000 Times in Less Than Two Months

Share Article

The Boaters TV, a thrice-weekly podcast covering boating news and features, was viewed in excess of 50,000 times in the two months since the first episode was released on June 18, quickly establishing itself as the top video podcast for boat owners and enthusiasts in the United States.

Instead, episodes are covering stories from a variety of angles: from serious to lighthearted, from everyday boaters to luxury yachters.

    The podcast is published at http://www.TheBoaters.tv, and it is syndicated through other popular online video content aggregators such as YouTube, DailyMotion, and Yahoo Video. The podcast is also distributed through the iTunes Store's free podcast download center. Recent episodes have covered the current debate over mandatory boater education and licensing, the EPA's Recreational Boating Act, and popular boating destinations such as Sea Ray's Aquapalooza celebration.

Episodes are hosted by Julie Perry, long active in the boating community with years of experience in yacht crew recruitment and the megayacht service niche. Perry recently authored The Insiders' Guide to Becoming a Yacht Stewardess (October 2006). Perry resides in South Florida, the birthplace of The Boaters TV and the boating capital of the United States.

"The momentum gathered by The Boaters TV can be attributed to its format, its production, the need it fills in the boating community, and the general rise of the podcast medium," said CEO Leonard Boord. The short, casual format delivers a wide variety of news in easily digestible episode-bites, and a quick scan of the notes accompanying each installment gives an overview of topics such as America's Cup, wakeboarding, boat maintenance, sportfishing, sailing and houseboats.

"The Boaters TV does not focus on a single boating sub-community such as megayachts or sportfishing, but neither does it get lost trying to be everything to everybody," said Perry. "Instead, episodes are covering stories from a variety of angles: from serious to lighthearted, from everyday boaters to luxury yachters."

The Podcast is easily portable through the use of a video iPod or similar device. Bolstered by rapidly rising viewing and subscription rates, The Boaters TV is expanding its reach to include on-location coverage of major events such as boat shows, as well as exclusive interviews with boating industry news-makers including manufacturers, association representatives, and industry regulators.
