Known to his international audience as “Billy” Baldwin, the long time boating fan will join the Rock the Yacht team as its lead narrator providing a distinct, sophisticated and genuine voice to the blue collar meets white collar world of yacht mechanics, tradesmen and owners. The series will shed a positive light on one of America’s last industrial sectors, while giving audiences a behind the scenes perspective on the rehabbing or “refitting”
The series will profile numerous companies known for their excellent work and performance throughout the industry. In a business world filled with cubicles, computers and suits, the show’s “work with your hands”, creative problem solving approach through custom fabrication creates a perspective no longer seen in everyday life. From unique one of a kind machine to equipment seldom seen outside of a shipyard, viewers will be taken beyond the veil of the marine industry to witness the relatively unknown world of yachts.
Patrick Armstrong has been boating since the age of eight and his love for the sea has left an impressionable mark on his life. “I love the open ocean and the sense of adventure, discovery, and exploration I feel every time I leave a port to cruise down to the islands. It’s an addictive feeling to leave everything behind you and discover a place for the first time. The Caribbean is filled with spots that you can only really appreciate by boat and I’ve been lucky enough to discover a few of those for myself.”
As narrator for the pilot episode Billy will play a key role in the show’s storytelling process, setting the tone for the drama, comedic relief and the show’s unique teaching moments.
