Sunsail is excited to see one of their sailing destinations, Fethiye in Turkey, featured in the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall. Rumour has it that Daniel Craig fell in love with this beautiful harbour town and has already planned his return next year. That’s not all; it seems Bond has ditched power in favour of sail in the new movie, filming scenes on a schooner-style superyacht.

Charterers can visit Koca Çalış Beach and Fethiye Port to recreate their own Bond moments on a Bareboat Yacht Charter or Flotilla out of Göcek. Or schedule in a lunch stop at the Yacht Classic Hotel in Fethiye where Daniel Craig and Bond’s production crew stayed.

With the imminent release of the new Bond film, Sunsail are celebrating all the beautiful Bond locations that you can visit with a Yacht Charter or Flotilla Vacation:
Bahamas (Casino Royale, Thunderball, Never Say Never Again & License to Kill)

Home to turquoise waters, pristine beaches and spectacular scenery, the Bahamas are also a hotspot for Bond backdrops. Many an underwater battle has taken place in the warm waters around Coral Harbour (not to mention the occasional love scene) and the glamorous Paradise Island provided the setting for a Mardi Gras in Thunderball and Bond’s hotel in Casino Royale. Bareboat or skippered yacht charters from the Abacos allow fans to explore the famous locations and perhaps even meet some friendly Bahamian locals who have worked on the movies.

San Francisco (A View to a Kill)
New for 2013, this stunning destination is one of the finest sailing areas in the United States. Sunsail now offers yacht charters, racing, sailing schools and corporate events out of Sausalito, California. Famous attractions in the city – including China Town, San Francisco Bay, Fisherman’s Wharf and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge – were all featured in the 1985 movie, so this destination is a must for Bond aficionados.

Corfu (For Your Eyes Only)
Those booking a charter or a two-week Flotilla from Sunsail’s base in Vounaki can discover the Greece that Bond experienced in the 1981 film. Sailors can take in Corfu Town (A UNESCO World Heritage Site, no less) and the 15th Century Old Fortress or hit Pagi Village (known locally as ‘James Bond Corner’), where the famous car chase took place.
Thailand (The Man with The Golden Gun)

Charterers visiting Phang Nga Bay, and particularly Ko Khao Phing Kan, will spy the rock which Scaramanga used to hide his energy collector, along with other spectacular rock formations. It’s a stunning destination with a striking gallery of giant limestone islands, tunnels and caves. Bareboat and skippered yacht charters are available from Phuket or Koh Samui with Sunsail.

Sunsail offers over 30 alluring destinations across the Mediterranean, Caribbean, North America and the Exotics, and a world-class fleet of cutting-edge yachts which can be hired with or without skippers, allowing sailors and non-sailors alike to enjoy sailing vacations.
