Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

I have to append my bucket list. She is a beauty.

I've always wondered how these mega-yacht secure their dining room chairs and now I wonder about the piano.

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

I have enough money to buy it(haha I wish) but if it doesnot have flame throwers, stinger missles, computer guided machine guns and an ejection seat I do not want to even consider it

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

I wonder if the baby grand piano can be winched to the weather side to help keep her sailing flat...like water ballast?

Definitely a schooner.

The chairs are normally secured by a vertical elastic or spring "hold down" assembly that runs from the center of the seat to a small eye-pad in the deck directly below the normal seating position, covered by a flap of carpet if the sole is carpeted. The chair can be moved from front to back and side to side but not removed or capsized unless the hold down is released. The Piano Bench is the same. The Piano, and larger furniture items, are bolted to the deck.

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

I would have more fun with the boat in Casino Royale. Not to get all Brent Muskberger here, but that was a beautiful boat. I'll be telling my kids to take acting lessons so they can grow up and sail on a beautiful boat like that. (Boy, did Brent get thrown under the bus.)

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

Why do you call this a "James Bond" boat? I looked at the picture of the bar, but I cannot find a martini shaker. It was James who ordered it, "shaken, not stirred", right?
No shaker, no Bond.

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

Holy Schnikies! The engine room is air conditioned! I never had that on billion dollar warships.

I wonder if this ship can actually sail to any real degree? Thoughts?

I assume at 15 $million the current owner and probably the future owner don't know either and probably don't care. I imagine the discussion is more like: "But honey I wanted one with the heated towel racks and hot and running champagne faucets. Not this floating barge."
