    It was reported on CBn back in early May that Sunseeker motoryachts would be featured in the upcoming Casino Royale. Now the appearance has been confirmed.

    Sunseeker motoryachts, which have previously featured in the The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day James Bond films, will be providing the company’s XS 2000 and Predator 108 for sequences to be filmed in central Europe, the Bahamas, and in studio. Photographs of the XS 2000 can be viewed here.

    On the upcoming Sunseeker appearance in Casino Royale, managing director Robert Braithwaite MBE said: ‘I am delighted that we have been asked to be involved in Casino Royale. Like Sunseeker, James Bond is associated worldwide with luxury, style and performance, I like to think that it would not be a 007 film without a Sunseeker!’
