British modern classic yacht company Spirit Yachts has announced a Spirit 46 sailing yacht will feature in the upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die, which is out in UK cinemas from September 30, in Hong Kong from October 7 and in the US from October 8, 2021.

Suffolk-based Spirit Yachts’ partnership with the James Bond films began when a Spirit 54 yacht was chosen to feature in the 2006 film Casino Royale, in which James Bond and Vesper Lynd can be seen cruising into Venice onboard a Spirit 54.

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.”

In the forthcoming film, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica, where a Spirit 46 sailing yacht is featured.

Sean McMillan continued, “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.”
