This sleek boat was seen in 'The World is Not Enough' in the opening sequence. Bond is chasing the 'Cigar Girls' boat down the river Thames and even driving it over land to catch up with his prey. The chase ends at Londons Millenium Dome where Bond jumps from the boat to a rope hanging from the hot air baloon the 'Cigar Girl' is using for her escape.

The boat can operate in just 7,62 cm (3 inches) of water, and (in the film) even function as a submarine for short periods of time.

Today one of these boats used for filming is owned by The Ian Fleming Foundation.
