Having left active service, James Bond (Daniel Craig) enjoys a tranquil life in Jamaica, where he can be seen sailing a Spirit 46 Yacht in the film.
Inspired by the classic, elegant sailing yachts from the 1930s, all Spirit yachts are custom-designed and built to order by a team of world-class craftsmen and women in Spirit’s waterside headquarters in Suffolk on the east coast of the United Kingdom.
At just over 14m long, the Spirit 46 has a sleek underwater profile and is ideal for fast-paced racing or coastal day cruising with planning speeds of up to 18 knots. Lightweight and easy to handle, the Spirit 46 has long overhangs, clean lines and a displacement of 4.5 tonnes.
Below deck, up to four people can be accommodate, with a forward ‘v’ berth cabin, separate from the saloon. In the saloon, the seat backs fold away to provide two wide settee berths. Sleeping arrangements are completed by a pilot berth aft of the navigation table.
Speaking on the partnership, Spirit Yachts CEO and Head of Design Sean McMillan commented, “The James Bond films are a mainstay of British culture and we are honoured to be continuing our partnership with such an iconic brand.”
“The Spirit 46 is one of the original Spirit Yachts designs and is an example of the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into every Spirit yacht. I think the yacht suits the Bond character very well because of the combination of beauty and practicality.“
