Spirit Yachts partnered with EON Productions, Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM) and Universal Pictures International to feature a Spirit 46 sailing yacht in the upcoming No Time To Die spy film. The 25th James Bond movie will be released in UK cinemas from 30th September and in the U.S. from 8th October 2021.
This isn’t the first time Spirit Yachts join forces with the James Bond films. Back in 2006, a Spirit 54 yacht was featured in Casino Royale movie, in which James Bond and Vesper Lynd can be seen cruising into Venice onboard a luxurious vessel.
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 our original 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. – Sean McMillan, Spirit Yachts CEO and Head of Design
In the forthcoming film, James Bond has left active service and is enjoying a peaceful life in Jamaica, where a Spirit 46 sailing yacht is featured. This modern classic yacht is characterized by long overhangs, flush decks, and an elegant profile. She can reach up to 18 knots of sailing speed and has the sailing performance of a regatta racing yacht.
Drawing inspiration from 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 UK.
