Norton’s Yacht Sales lands 2013 Virginia Travel Guide cover photo

The cover of the 2013 Virginia Travel Guide

Norton’s Yacht Sales in Deltaville has announced that the cover photo for the 2013 Virginia Travel Guide was taken in collaboration with Norton Yachts.

Ken and Carolyn Schmalenberger, owners of Norton’s Yacht Sales Inc., hosted a two-day photo shoot in July 2012 for the Virginia Tourism Corporation.  Renowned Norfolk photographer Mark Atkinson took the winning shot of Ken Schmalenberger sailing with a family in a new 2012 Hunter 41’ sailboat on the Rappahannock River. Tracey Lee Productions arranged models from New York City and Raleigh, N.C., for the photo shoot.

The Schmalenbergers are pleased with the timeliness of the special tourism guide cover photo considering Norton’s is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year.  Norton’s, a third generation boat business, was founded by Carolyn’s grandfather, Ed Norton, in 1948, and continued by Carolyn’s father, Billy Norton, on Broad Creek in “Deltaville, The Boating Capital of the Chesapeake.”
