Sunseeker Predator 108
In Casino Royale, the stunning Sunseeker Predator 108 can be spotted. The luxury motor yacht, owned by villain Le Chiffre, is spotted by Bond right after he lands with the seaplane and is seen later in the movie:
- when Le Chiffre's girlfriend and henchwoman Valenka (played by Ivana Milicevic) climbs aboard the yacht after taking a sunset swim
- when Le Chiffre wins a poker game of a rich guest
- as a meeting point for Le Chiffre and villain Alex Dimitrios (deleted scene).
The Predator 108 was filmed on location in the Bahamas and Sunseeker also built full-scale models of accommodation on board for transportation to film studios in Prague.
Working closely with Sunseeker's designers and drawing office, film producers EON Productions took 6 weeks to create full-scale sets of the Predator 108's Deck Saloon, Aft Cockpit and Master Stateroom, duplicating every aspect of equipment, luxury and style in the finest detail. Once created, the film sets were dismantled in the UK, transported and constructed in Prague, and mounted on a giant hydraulic platform to simulate the movement of the sea during filming.
A global leader in the design and build of luxury motor yachts, Sunseeker International exports 99% of its product range and employs over 1,800 highly trained staff in their shipyards on Britain's South Coast. Sunseeker International is widely recognised as the pre-eminent marine brand in the world today.
