The beautiful Spirit 54 yacht Soufri?re, which appeared in Casino Royale, will be on show at the London on Water show at St Katharine Docks 4 - 7 May.

Spirit Yachts will be displaying the stunning Soufri?re at this year?s London on Water show, which takes place at St Katharine Docks from 4 ? 7 May.

The beautiful Spirit 54 had quite the role when she starred alongside Daniel Craig and Eva Green in James Bond?s 2006 film Casino Royale.

Following her film debut, Soufri?re was sold and enjoyed subsequent years? cruising and participating in competitive racing. She was then returned to Spirit Yachts to complete a refit and is now for sale through Spirit?s brokerage department for ?600,000.

Spirit Yachts CEO and head designer Sean McMillan comments, ?Soufri?re was designed specifically for Casino Royale? following the production company?s search for a classically elegant, unique, British built yacht. The scene in which Daniel Craig and Eva Green glide into Venice onboard Soufri?re granted her a place in British film history. What better place to re-launch her to the public than London; the home of James Bond??

Describing the filming of Casino Royale?, McMillan adds, ?Probably the most challenging voyage for Soufri?re came during filming in Venice when we had to take the rig in and out ten times; she was the first sailing yacht to go up the Grand Canal for 300 years.?

Soufri?re was recently given a fresh coat of paint on her elegant ice blue coloured hull and all external varnish was stripped and re-varnished where necessary. The interior woodwork has been re-varnished where required and all equipment from the engine to the rigging has been inspected and serviced. She will be on display in berth C09 at the London show.

Also on display at the London show in berth C10 will be the Spirit P40, a sophisticated 12 metre power boat whose clean lines and impeccable design are synonymous with Spirit Yachts? modern classic style.
