Casino Royale – as in the super luxury yacht that shares the same name as the 2006 film it was famously featured in – is just as cool as British super spy James Bond himself, if not cooler.
In “Casino Royale” the film, the vessel was used as the hideout of the villain Le Chiffre.
The 33-metre performance motor yacht from the Sunseeker Predator range, which was delivered in 2004 and then renovated in 2016, was recently listed for charter on Camper & Nicholsons.
Now, you too can make it your own personal escape for a cool US$72,000 per week.
At that rate, the sports hull, which is docked in the Mediterranean Sea today, can sleep up to eight guests in four beautifully furnished cabins manned by four crew members round-the-clock to ensure the most comfortable of voyages.
Each room comes equipped with its own en-suite, fully-marbled bathroom, and television. The main attraction is, of course, the master suite, which features the finest leathers, marble surfaces, and furnishings. It also comprises a master study, a bathroom with a full-size bathtub and shower, and a walk-in wardrobe. The remaining accommodation is made up of a beautiful VIP stateroom and two twin staterooms.
One thing you’ll notice immediately upon boarding is just how spacious the yacht is. That’s because the Casino Royale has an opulent open plan salon boasting features and fittings you might only expect to see on a larger yacht, thanks to her 2.7-metre headroom – a rarity on a superyacht of her size.
Immaculate and pristine, the main salon is furnished with warm woods and neutral undertones, and features a retractable sun roof above the dining area.
Further at the back of the main deck is a sumptuous lounging space with an airy al fresco dining area and bar, and a very large sunpad. When the sun gets too hot, guests can take a lovely dip in the jacuzzi up front, which also offers ample space for sunbathing and lounging.
And after a long day out at sea, there’s only one way to unwind – with a glass of martini, just as Mr Bond himself would. But please, only if it’s shaken, and not stirred.
