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.”

A true modern classic yacht, the Spirit 46 showcases long overhangs, flush decks and an elegant profile. A day sailing yacht capable of up to 18knots sailing speed, the Spirit 46 looks beautiful on the water and has the sailing performance of a regatta racing yacht.

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 UK.

With long overhangs, flush decks and a sleek waterline profile, the Spirit 46 displays all the design characteristics of a timeless modern classic yacht. Hand-crafted using sustainable timber and with accommodation for up to four people, the Spirit 46 is a popular choice for owners looking for a performance racing yacht, a simply laid-out coastal cruiser or a combination of the two. With an efficient sail plan and a flat run aft, the Spirit 46 is capable of planing speeds up to 18 knots.

Whilst Spirit Yachts has a portfolio of existing designs from day sailors to superyachts, each yacht is tailored to suit an owner’s criteria meaning every Spirit yacht is completely unique.

Spirit Yachts’ partnership with EON Productions on the James Bond films began when a Spirit 54 was chosen to feature in the 2006 film Casino Royale.

Casino Royale features a memorable scene with James Bond and Vesper Lynd cruising into Venice onboard a Spirit 54 Yacht. Having been handcrafted by Spirit Yachts’ skilled team of boat-builders in Suffolk, the yacht (a 54 foot design named Spirit) was shipped to the Bahamas for filming. From there, Spirit Yachts sailed her to Puerto Rico and through the British Virgin Islands for filming. After shooting scenes in the Caribbean, the yacht was shipped to Croatia and sailed on to Venice. During filming in Venice, the yacht’s rig was taken in and out a total of 10 times to fit under multiple canal bridges. She was the first sailing yacht to go up the Grand Canal in 300 years.
