Bond is back – and this time superyachts take over the shores for an added touch of elegance in the new film Skyfall.
And what better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond empire than to follow in the footsteps of our favourite 007 hero and experience sailing in a superyacht style.
An alternative form of transport to the renowned Jenson or Jaguar, James Bond has always relished the luxury of yachts. We all remember the astounding schooners in Die Another Day and The World is Not Enough, with the epic scene in the pre-title sequence where Bond zips down the River Thames in London in a Spirit yacht.
In Skyfall, Daniel Craig and new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe are filmed aboard the stunning "Regina" yacht in the Gulf of Fethiye, Turkey.
Built in Bodrum, the 56-metre yacht boasts luxury cabins and white mahogany interiors. Its estimated price is a staggering 11 million pounds.
Favoured by celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, yachts are perfect for those wanting to escape hectic everyday life in a private and peaceful atmosphere. Usually associated with the 'rich and famous', they needn't be a bank-breaking option for a group of friends wanting to sail the Med, or for family time in luxury cabins and calm, fluid interiors.
Discover the exquisite details of leisure and luxury on board: soak up the sun on an open-deck, enjoy the tranquillity of a secluded mooring and snorkel in the deep clear waters of the ocean.
