Frequently Asked Questions

How can I search for my photos?

You can search for your photos in the search product field on the home page. Just enter your sail number (preferred) or yacht name. Our photographers try and record both the name and sail number, but the nature of moving yachts makes this problematic. Entering your sail number is the most reliable search option.

How do I download my photo(s)? 

Your photos can be downloaded after you have completed the checkout process, by clicking the “download file” link on the order confirmation page, or by clicking the link in the confirmation email.

How do I enter a coupon code?

If you have a coupon code this can be entered during the checkout process; your reduced outstanding balance will automatically be calculated.

What do I do if I haven’t received a confirmation email?
