The James Bond lifestyle in real life – Bond's yacht from Skyfall, has changed hands for a reported 11 million euro. Luxury ho!

Sometimes, there are opportunities in life that a person just shouldn’t pass up. And when James Bond takes a romantic Mediterranean sailing trip, it should come as no surprise that the Hollywood elite start feeling the need to do the same. The luxurious two masted super yacht M/S Regina from the latest Bond flick was just sold to an anonymous investor for around 11 million euro, who probably had exactly this thought in mind. For the curious, charter costs were set at around 70,000-90,000 euro per week…

Just like Bond

The speedy departure of the super yacht came as a surprise for the ship agent in charge of the sale – despite good market conditions, and exorbitant interest in the Pruva shipyard that built it. To be fair, a classic sailing yacht in private ownership requires constant attention to keep the equipment maintained, and the sensitive natural materials in good shape. The 56-meter Regina is also by no means a minimalist’s vessel, adding to the amount of work and related costs involved. Two master bedrooms with attached baths and walk-in closets, as well as four luxurious guest cabins provide accommodation for up to 15 passengers. Decoration includes the standard fare for such ships – satellite television, blue ray players, high-end audio equipment, marble and hardwood finishes – as well as a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ setup.

Luxury toys

To keep life aboard the ship free from monotony, modernity is balanced with fun: passengers on the M/S Regina can enjoy sea kayaks, wakeboards, and water skis, or take a 115 hp inflatable to nearby islands for picnics. There’s also additional space for jet-skis, should the new owner so desire, something that Skyfall producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli took advantage of during an eight-day shoot along the Turkish Riviera. It’s unlikely that a chance to live out the Bond lifestyle this fully will come up again anytime soon – unless of course, you’re fortunate enough to be good friends with the M/S Regina’s new owner.
