The Piano, and larger furniture items, are bolted to the deck.
The fact that you know all that concerns me.

James Bond Skyfall Yacht For Sale

YACHT OF THE WEEK: Buy The Yacht From 'Skyfall' For $14 Million


In "Skyfall," the latest James Bond film that opens in American theaters today, 007 spends time on a gorgeous yacht sailing around China.


That yacht, the 'Regina,' is available for purchase, and it looks as good as it does in the film. On sale for €11 million ($14 million) by Fraser Yachts, it's no cheap ticket, but it's not a bad deal either.



For those who want to a short stay on the 'Regina', launched in February 2011, it is available for charter by Pruva Yachts, in Turkey: One week costs €50,000 ($63,560).

The 183-foot yacht has 1,140 square meters of sails.

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

honest question to all of you:


If you hit the lotto for say $200 Million, would you buy it? $15MM doesn't sound so bad when you've got $200MM rolling around in your pocket. It probably costs $2MM a year to maintain, but interest on your dough ought to cover that.

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

Would you consider a partnership? I would take it in a heart beat, I know this because I've had visions some may refer to as dreams of doing just that......,


Although I'd prefer the Royale sailor for the mere fact that it doesn't require a crew.......,

Re: James Bond sailboat for sale

I don't like it.
I swear I can find something I don't like in any boat, even a Mega Yacht.
The freaking Formal Dinning area, Grand Piano and Lounge share the same space.
Everybody knows that the Formal Dinning Area should be separate from the Lounge and Piano.
Familycruisers and -OvO- like this.

Yes. Not my taste but some of the female persuasion prefer it. Also, the Piano is nice but we found that sea air was not conducive to the longevity of piano wire and finding replacements, and a good tuner, in the islands was rather a trial and the humidity quickly had all the efforts undone. We switched to an electronic piano (i.e. keyboard/speakers) and few can tell the difference absent looking under the bonnet. (Also, FWIW, a metronome does not take well to windward passages so one needs keep that bottled up!)

Ah, the Spirit 54
]

That would raise a few eyebrows in the Wednesday Beer Cans. "A performance customer who wants to cruise in comfort" - yeah, that's me.

And I even know where to go to buy it:
Spirit Website. 750K Euros - say $1.3m is new. Bargain.

Prefer a cutter rig, though, on a boat that size.

It's part of a sequence shot by "Beken of Cowes" in the English Channel. Google "Silk Crash" and you should find it.
