Bond Girl of the Sea

    The new 163-foot Casino Royale, unveiled in July, pushed the Christensen shipyard to its limits. “The boat’s owners have thirty-plus years of experience building different yachts,” said Joe Foggia, Christensen president. “Their requests pushed us in many new creative directions.”

    Casino Royale’s 6,900 square feet of interior space is a masterpiece of interwoven wood and stone, with Sapele mahogany raised-panel joinery and custom marble and granite work defining the salon and dining areas. The master stateroom also has the beautiful woodwork with intricate marble wainscoting. The spiral staircase of the entryway features sexy Bond-girl silhouettes etched into frosted panes of glass, and an intricately carved sculpture of a roulette wheel, made of petrified wood and stone, completes the Bond motif.  The yacht, which has a transatlantic range of 4,500 miles, will be on display at this year’s Fort Lauderdale, Florida, boat show.
