James Bond boat stranded in Osborne Bay
The RNLI were called out to assist a motorboat that once starred in the James Bond film “From Russia with Love”.
A motorboat that once starred in the James Bond blockbuster ‘From Russia with Love’ had to be rescued on Wednesday after becoming stranded in Osborne Bay.
The 28ft Fairey Huntsman Fairey Nuff appears in high-speed chases in the classic spy film but this time the boat needed assistance from Cowes RNLI. When the crew arrived on the scene, a towline was set up and the couple on board were taken to Trinity Landing at Cowes.
From there it was arranged for a marine engineer to visit the cabin based at Shamrock Quay, Southampton. Meanwhile, the lifeboat returned to Cowes station, an hour after it launched.
