This beatiful sailboat transports Severine and Bond to the Silva's hideout on the deserted island near Macau (in reality - Hashima Island, south west coast of Japan, 15 km from Nagasaki).

We can see here typical application of one of the Murphy's law "What starts good, ends bad". After a warm reception under shower Bond ends the travel handcuffed by the crew...

The yacht itself is a steel schooner originally named "Regina". Build in Bodrum, launched in February 2011 by Turkish Medyat Yacht Building company. Available for charters - prices starts 65 000 EUR/week in low season (March 2013 promotion - 50 000 EUR). According to information from it is also available for sale ... how they expressed that ?? "11 million Euros will secure you this luxury yacht for sale"... nice piece of penny but you must admit seeing even only the scenes form the movie that this yacht is a masterpiece of art. Bond's world, indeed.
