If this yacht’s name makes you think of James Bond, then you’ll make her owner proud. John Staluppi, a familiar face in yacht-ownership circles, christens all of his yachts in honor of the movies starring the shaken-not-stirred hero. The interior is said to feature Bond girls crafted in frosted glass. Casino Royale is the largest launch from Christensen thus far and should debut at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
