Casino Royale Yacht is the iconic vessel propelled by sail or power and is used for cruising or racing. But what makes it so special about it.
This Yacht was used in Casino Royale movie the 21st film of 2006 of the Eon Productions James Bond film series and the first to star Daniel Craig as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. Directed by Martin Campbell and written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Paul Haggis, the film marks the third screen adaptation of Ian Fleming’s 1953 novel of the same name. The story of the film revolves around Bond’s career as Agent 007, just as he is earning his licence to kill. After preventing a terrorist attack at Miami International Airport, Bond falls in love with Vesper Lynd, the treasury employee assigned to provide the money he needs to bankrupt a terrorist financier, Le Chiffre, by beating him in a high-stakes poker game.
Casino Royale is also known as Soufrière named after a Caribbean volcano. The Soufrière Hills volcano is an active, complex strato volcano with many lava domes forming its summit, on the Caribbean island of Montserrat. After a long period of dormancy, the Soufrière Hills volcano became active in 1995, and has continued to erupt ever since. Its eruptions have rendered more than half of Montserrat uninhabitable, destroying the capital city, Plymouth, and causing widespread evacuations: about two thirds of the population have left the island.
The volcano is named for the French word soufrière, meaning “sulphur outlet”. This volcano last erupted in year 2010 over sections of several nearby islands including Guadeloupe and Antigua.
Casino Royale also better known as 007 Spirit Yacht was the first in 300 years to sail the Grand Canal in Venice and took Daniel Craig and Eva Green the movie characters on a romantic odyssey and became a boat worthy of the famous super-spy. This is classic, British yacht oozing style of elegance. which 54 foot long yacht.
Casino Royal is now up for sale again. As soon as her big-screen days were over, the sophisticated yacht was sold to an Irish procurer who occupied the former Bond co-star by cruising and participating in competitive racing.
A decade later, Soufrière returned to Spirit Yachts to complete a refit. Made with mahogany and teak, she was given a fresh coat of paint on her ice-blue-coloured hull and all external varnish was stripped and re-varnished where necessary. Interior woodwork has been re-varnished, plus all equipment, from the engine to the rigging, has been inspected and serviced.
Soufrière sleeps up to six guests in two double cabins with en-suite bathrooms and is powered by a 54hp Yanmar diesel engine.
Following the build in Suffolk, Spirit was shipped to the Bahamas before the Spirit team sailed her to Puerto Rico and through the British Virgin Islands to Tortola Harbour, before she was shipped to Croatia and then sailed to Venice. Dressed with a mahogany topside and a teak deck, the bespoke beauty is at home both racing recently winning the ladies’ Round the Isle portion of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge regatta or casually cruising in a style author Ian Fleming would approve. The belowdecks houses a galley and saloon along with a double owner’s cabin toward the bow and another double cabin aft, both en suite, that fit comfortably within the 11-foot beam.
But unlike Bond’s short-lived and ill-fated romance with Vesper, Soufrière is available for a lasting relationship at a price that could exceed $925,250.
