A James Bond "Moonraker" boat reproduction

A while ago I blogged here about the boat used in Moonraker, the James Bond film.

In early March, 2011 the replica was on eBay. I presume it was the one built by Invision Boat Works in Reese, MI from molds of the original which they restored.

The boat license numbers are Michigan, which begin with "MC".

Described as "Moonraker II" the seller gave the impression it was the original but a close look at the photos prove it was actually the reproduction. Tisk tisk. lol

It did not have the rear canopy, none of the weapons and the upholstery was made of new material. Beautifully done, though.

Asking price was US $24,900 but the auction ended with one offer for $8,000.00 and went unsold.
