Christensen’s 49.7m Casino Royale for sale
by Malcolm MacLean
At 49.7m, Casino Royale is the largest Christensen built to date and is now offered for sale by Ocean Independence’s Peter Thompson jointly with Woods & Associates in Florida. Launched earlier in summer 2008 and recently reduced in price, she is the first in the new ‘Millenium Edition’ series. Unlike the owner’s previous James Bond-themed ultra-fast motor yachts, Casino Royale is designed for a modest 10 knot cruising speed with a top speed of 17 knots. Due to be displayed at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show next February, she features a full-beam master suite and five guest cabins.
