If all you remember from the boat scene in Casino Royale is Eva Green, that makes two of us.
But rumor has it the scene also featured a 54-foot mahogany sailing vessel.
And now that classic yacht is going up for sale at this year’s London On-Water Show, which kicks off May 4th.
Designed and built by hand by Spirit Yachts, the Soufrière has teak decks and a modern rig topside, along with a full galley, a living area and two cabins below deck. Easy on the eyes, and the vessel’s superior power-to-weight ratio make it an ideal fit for racing — she took line honors at the British Classic Yacht Club Panerai regatta.
The yacht — which had to have its mast dismantled and reassembled 10 times during filming — was recently returned to Spirit and has been refitted in advance of the upcoming sale.
“Soufrière was designed specifically for Casino Royale following the production company’s search for a classically elegant, unique, British built yacht,” says Spirit CEO and head designer Sean McMillan. “What better place to re-launch her to the public than London, the home of James Bond?”
The asking price for the yacht is about $890,000, so start rounding up your Moneypennies.
