When we bring an experience from a movie into our real lives, it always evokes a unique set of emotions. We get a moment to feel like a celebrity, taking in all the sights and sounds around us that they experienced filming in iconic locations. While most of us will never achieve real fame in our lives, the ability to experience the sensation of being famous, even if just for a few hours, is unforgettable.
Walking past Tiffany & Co on 5th Avenue puts us in the shoes of Holly Golightly in 1960s New York City. A cruise on the River Thames past the landmark buildings of London can bring up unlimited Sherlock Holmes references, and everyone remembers their first drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, feeling excitement when remembering how it has been a battleground for movies like the Rise of Planet of the Apes and Pacific Rim.
Boat Like James Bond
Living out the thrills from an action movie takes the entire experience to a new level. When you push off from the dock on the Van Dutch Luxury Motor Yacht, you’ll step into the leather shoes of secret agent James Bond, taking on the waters around Newport Beach in impeccable style. This captivating boat has made its debut on the big screen several times, including features in HBO’s Entourage (so don’t forget to invite yours) the movie Baller’s, and most importantly, James Bond Skyfall. Able to accommodate up to 12 people, you’ll have space to sip champagne and lounge around, soaking up the southern California sun.
Don’t forget your dark-tinted aviator sunglasses when you cruise on this beautiful vessel since the Instagram paparazzi will be waiting out in the waves to snap photos of you and your entourage as you explore the stunning California coastline. Renters of the Van Dutch luxury yacht can take it on a day trip out to Catalina Island for snorkeling and sunbathing, drift past Laguna Beach and wave to admirers, or sip a glass of champagne and watch the sunset over the Pacific. Captain Sean will act as your agent, professionally designing the perfect boating day down to every last detail. You’ll feel all the luxury and joy of living the high life without having to sign any autographs on your boat day.
