Vampires prefer Silver Bullets (sports boats from Chris-Craft that is)

Silver Bullet stars in Twilight saga .. ©
The limited edition Chris-Craft Silver Bullet will hit the big screen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in theaters in the US from Friday, November 18, 2011.

Even though most vampires fear a silver bullet, this Silver Bullet is a 20ft limited edition luxury runabout, manufactured by Chris-Craft in Sarasota, FL. The boat was chosen for the 'honeymoon' scenes between Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (played by Kristin Stewart) where they cruise off to their honeymoon to the Cullen family’s private island on the Brazilian coast.

The boat was shipped from Sarasota to Brazil for the first scenes of the film and an additional Silver Bullet was sent to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for additional scenes. The Silver Bullet is the boating equivalent of a sports car but without the traffic. Built with optional 300hp Mercury or Volvo engines capable of speeds in excess of 60mph and comes in any color, as long as it’s silver. There will be only 150 of these boats manufactured and made available world-wide.

The original boat used in the movie is now located in Connecticut and is available for sale by private party. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn movie is based on the book series by Stephanie Meyer.



Only 150 of these stunning sport boats will be built and offered world-wide. The beautiful custom metallic silver hull and deck is expertly trimmed with a teak foredeck, engine hatch, deck rails cockpit floor, swim platform, helm and passenger foot rests. The Silver Bullet is the boating equivalent of a sports car: but without the traffic.

You are assured of an immediate response and predictable handling while remaining inherently stable at high speed. Expect all this plus the unequalled comfort and style that make it a Chris-Craft. The company is currently on hull #42 with only 108 remaining.
