Description

    The Spy Who Loved Me Screen-Used Minisub. This functional submersible was used in the 1977 James Bond thriller The Spy Who Loved Me. A prototype for the Shark Hunter II series produced by Perry Oceanographics, this mini-sub was designed to transport personnel, conduct underwater surveys, and serve as a recreational vehicle. Representatives from Pinewood Studios visited the builder to negotiate the propulsion and ballast for the submersible Lotus Esprit used in the movie, when they caught a glimpse of the Shark Hunter hull. So enamored were they with it, the script was rewritten to include the sub in an astounding underwater chase scene. Features include an aluminum and fiberglass hull, brushless electric motor, and stainless steel aircraft control cables. It does not feature a pressurized cabin, and thus requires scuba and/or well-developed lungs during use.
    Maximum depth: 450 feet. Top speed: 3.5 knots. Battery duration: 5-6 hours. Range: 18-20 miles. Torpedoes: none (sorry). Yellow with black detailing, seats two, and 15 feet in length. Includes wheeled transport trailer, a history of the sub from designer Richard Brown, and list of operational guidelines from former owner Tom Kolodner. Requires third party shipping.
