Bond Fights Largo In Thunderball

Showdown on the Disco Volante

Bond and Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi) battle for control of the Disco Volante in Thunderball (1965). Largo’s boat was designed by Sir Ken Adam from an old hydrofoil and catamaran and took four months to build. Adam said: “It had to be 160ft long and it had to travel at 50 knots and no such yacht existed at that time. It was very experimental as the two hulls had to work independently.”
