While some serial superyacht owners like to keep the same name for each of their yachts, other stick to a theme and there is no better example of this then John Staluppi's series of yachts named after James Bond films. As the first images of his newest in-build yacht Spectre are released, we look back at this prolific owner's yachting history.
For Your Eyes Only
Now renamed Wanderlust, For Your Eyes Only was John Staluppi’s first superyacht. Built in 1985, the 36 metre Denison was custom-built to satisfy Staluppi’s desire to have something different to the big yachts he had seen while cruising in his earlier smaller fishing vessels.
“I wanted to build the first boat over 100 feet (30.5 metres) that would go over 30 knots,” Staluppi said in an interview with Boat International. “The Bond movie-inspired name came because the concept seemed to match the crazy gadgets, planes, boats and high-speed cars, of the films.”
