James Bond 007 Jet Boat



James Bond 007 Jet Boat

The opening sequence for the James Bond film 'The world is not enough' featured a water jet powered speed boat complete with the usual bond-type gadgets.

In reality there were 15 boats, 4 of which were fully operational and the other 11 were full size models.

The working bond boats were powered by a 5.7 litre V8 running through a jet drive - like a jetski - this enables the bond boat to run in as little as three inches of water.

These powerful little boats were capable of reaching 65mph, perhaps more impressive though are their 0-50 times of just 3.5 seconds.

The James Bond boat hulls were initially constructed by Riddle marine with the fibreglass bond goodies added later by Pinewood Studios.
