Glastron

Glastron boats are featured in several James Bond films.

In Live and Let Die (1974) Bond steals a Glastron GT-150 from Dr. Kananga's "crocodile farm" drug factory and engages in a high speed chase. After the GT-150 is disabled by gunfire, Bond changes into a Glastron CV-19 Jet speedboat

Dr. Kananga's henchmen chase Bond in Glastron V-156 Sportster (one of these boats is disabled after crashing into a tree, another being simply outrun by Bond and Kananga henchman Adam), a Glastron V-184 Crestflite (this is the boat that gets stuck in the wedding tent). A Glastron V-162 Futura is destroyed when it spears Sheriff J.W. Pepper's car while attempting to jump over an embankment in pursuit of Bond (who cleared the embankment in his GT-150). A Glastron V-145 Fireflite ends up in Deke Rodger's swimming pool. A Glastron-Carlson CV21 Jet speedboat (owned by Louisiana wildlife park ranger Billy-Bob) is stolen by Kananga henchman Adam and destroyed when driven into the back of a derelict ship and explodes.
 
In the movie Moonraker (1979) Bond uses a Q-Branch equipped Glastron CV23HT "Hydrofoil" Boat. Bond is chased in this boat on the Amazon river by Drax' henchmen in Glastron SSV-189 speedboats.
 
In A View To A Kill (1985), villain Max Zorin uses a Glastron Carlson C-537 to retrieve Mayday on the river Seine in Paris, after the assassination of Achille Aubergine.
Incredibly detailed fanmade Glastron-Carlson CV21 Live And Let Die remote control model

French industrial designer Bertrand Le Bris used his skills to create an incredibly detailed scale model of the black and yellow "Billy Bob" Glastron-Carlson CV21 jet speedboat. And it even works!

James Bond (Roger Moore) uses a Glastron Carlson CV23HT speedboat in the movie Moonraker (1979). HT stands for Hard Top. Only 300 of these hard top boats were built in 1978 and 1979, and only 3 of those were built with the custom painted silver metalflake gelcoat over gray (the 'normal' boats sold to the public had either metalflake blue or metalflake bronze color).

In the movie Live and Let Die (1974), James Bond uses a Glastron GT150 speedboat in a thrilling chase through the Louisiana marches. The boat made a record braking 120ft jump.

The Live and Let Die GT150 used for the famous jump was built in 1972 and had an Evinrude Starflite 135hp engine.
