The magnificent 54-foot super racing yacht, Soufrière, used in the 2005 James Bond movie Casino Royale, is up for sale. Baroque Yachts has all the details
If you’re in the mood for a magnificent super yacht that is not only the stuff of dreams, but also the type of yacht that movies are made about, then this stunning yacht was made for you. Adventurers and secret agents in the making (if you’re a secret agent, we wouldn’t know that, now would we?) will love this masterpiece created by British boat builder Spirit Yachts, a stylish vessel that whisked James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) and Vesper Lynd (his beautiful sidekick, played by Eva Green) off to Venice to become the first yacht to sail up the famous Grand Canal in three centuries!
The yacht, which is completely bespoke, was made specifically for the movie with a stunning mahogany topside and an equally magnificent teak deck. Below deck one finds a galley and saloon, both sumptuous and luxurious, as well as a spacious double owner’s cabin located towards the bow and a second double cabin situated aft. Both are en suite, and of course, are fitted with every possible luxury imaginable. There’s also a sizeable living area fitted with a beautiful mahogany dining room table and fully equipped galley.
For the past 10 years, the Soufrière has had its fair share of adventures aside from being featured in the movie. For instance, last July it won the ladies’ ‘Round the Isle’ portion of the Panerai Classic Yachts Regatta! But now the luxury super yacht is ready for another incarnation. It has returned to its birthplace to receive a new paint job and to be refurbished, which will include being completely re-varnished in 2016 before being offered for sale at a little less than a million dollars.
So if you’re in the market for a specialist super yacht with more than a little star potential, read on to find out all about its specifications. The vessel, which is nicknamed ‘The 007 Yacht’, is a classic British yacht that was originally handcrafted by the skilled craftsmen at Spirit Yachts in Suffolk. As with all Spirit yachts, this one has the brand’s signature clean lines.
The newly built yacht was initially shipped to the Bahamas, from where she sailed to Puerto Rico, through the British Virgin Islands to Tortola Harbour. From there, the yacht was shipped to Croatia and on arrival, it sailed to Venice for the movie. It had to have its mast removed so that it would fit under the bridge in the Grand Canal, and then made its maiden voyage up the Grand Canal, the first sailing yacht to do this in 300 years!
