Plus four other movie-famous yachts and sailboats you can charter.
If you can't be an action movie star, you can pretend to be one, right? While fancy hi-tech gear and sleek sports cars are hard to come by, charter and rental site GetMyBoat makes it easy to enjoy the pleasures of a boat worthy of an international super spy—worthy of James Bond, in fact.
Fans of history, movies, James Bond, and even just the water will love these stunning vessels, all available for rent or charter. You may not be a movie star, but who says you can't sail like one?
This 36-foot Sunseeker Superhawk Motor Yacht’s alliterative name is inspired by one of its most famous captains: James Bond, as played by Pierce Brosnan. Featured in the opening credits of 1999’s The World Is Not Enough, Shaken Not Stirred is available for charter on the Thames in London, England, starting at $850 per hour.
Built in 1988 by a wooden boat builder, this unique, 62-foot topsail schooner played a starring role in the drama Survive the Savage Seas (1992). Available for lunch and sunset sails, Providence V sails out of Magnetic Island in Queensland, Australia; rates start at $85 per day.
Fans of Johnny Depp’s The Rum Diary will recognize this 65-foot schooner—she appeared in the movie as Sanderson’s yacht. Today, she sails out of Port Elizabeth in the Grenadines, with room for up to four guests. This classic wooden boat can be chartered starting at $625 per day, with a two-day minimum. She also sails seasonally out of Rockport, Maine.
This sleek yacht, a Sunseeker Predator 108, offers Bond fans another chance to experience a taste of the international superspy lifestyle: She appeared in Casino Royale, which starred Daniel Craig as James Bond. Luxuriously outfitted, with a Jacuzzi on the forward deck, M3 sails out of Croatia, cruising the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea. Rates start at $10,631 per day.
Beautifully restored, this 124-foot Gulet was first launched in 1907. In the years since, she has filled a range of roles, from trading ketch to member of the British fleet of Merchant Ships in World Wars I and II. She even appeared briefly in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Today, she is available for charter out of Falmouth, England, for up to 15 passengers, starting at $455 per person.
