Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien were the big names in the 2017 counter-terrorism thriller American Assassin, based on Vince Flynn’s 2010 novel of the same name, but the real star was surely the Itama 62. This 19 metre speedboat stole the show in a spectacular chase scene, which involved O’Brien jumping onto the moving yacht.

Built in Italy as part of the Ferretti Group’s extensive range, the Itama 62 has a top speed of 40 knots thanks to twin MAN V12 engines and can accommodate up to six guests in three cabins.

Sir David Attenborough recently returned to the small screen with his latest BBC nature documentary Blue Planet II. The renowned naturalist certainly knows how to make an entrance and episode one of this seven-part series 'One Ocean' began with him standing on the bow of the 54 metre superyacht support vessel Umbra while a pod of dolphins frolicked in the bow wake.

Launched by Dutch yard Damen in 2008, Umbra was refitted in 2014 to add a large helipad to her aft deck, which can be briefly seen in the BBC's spectacular aerial footage. The first episode also showed cameramen using a Zodiac RIB to film dolphins surfing off the coast of South Africa, while episode two 'The Deep' featured the 55 metre Auroux expedition yacht Alucia, which was used to launch a pair of deep dive submarines, as Eyos Expeditions recently revealed.
