I´m not sure about James Bond´s film, but I know that this trawler exists in plastic kit model, the REVELL produce the same model in scale!
Great photo... :-D

Yes, that was correct. It was For Your Eyes Only, filmed in 1981.

BTW, talking about Bond. Did you realize that in every Bond film, there is at least one ship or boat?

- Thanks to Hylke for precisions about the vessel history -

:idea: Have a look at:

I really love those photos of old friendly-looking hulls, because they have witnessed or protaganized many sea stories...and also because they kept a more human dimension than a great majority of european modern trawlers. Thanks for posting!

Best Regards,
Romain López.
