Top James Bond Boats Revealed

To celebrate the release of Spectre this week, the world’s premier yacht charter company has revealed the top eight boats from the James Bond film franchise in an interactive web application called “The Moorings Presents: License to Sail”.

The collection of marine vehicles have been chosen for their appearance in iconic Bond scenes, how recognisable they are to audiences, and in regards to how intriguing they are. They include: the Q-Boat (also known as Q’s “Fishing Boat”) from The World is Not Enough, the Glastron GT-150 from Live and Let Die and the Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me.

Filled with vintage-style animations, the piece allows users to discover behind the scenes facts and lesser known information about some of the more unique modes of transport we’ve seen on our screens since the Bond franchise began in 1962 with Dr. No.

Unsurprisingly the majority of the amphibious vessels featured are from the films starring 007 actor Sir Roger Moore; arguably the most recognisable and highly regarded Bond actor of all time whose scripts often included unbelievable scenes such as those found in Moonraker.

The website also includes a License to Thrill rating, which rates the marine vehicles by how much they add to the films they’re in at a glance. Fellow Bond aficionados are encouraged to share their ratings with The Moorings across social media using the hashtag #licensetosail.
