Sarasota, FL – November 17, 2011– The limited edition Chris-Craft Silver Bullet will hit the big screen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in theaters nationwide 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.

Chris-Craft®, the legendary American boat brand founded in 1874, still produces elegant and sophisticated sport boats today. Chris-Craft leads the industry in craftsmanship and quality which represents the company's enduring devotion to its proud past. A privately held company, Chris-Craft is headquartered in Sarasota, Florida and includes the following models in the 2012 Collection: The Silver Bullet, Launch, Lancer, Corsair and the Catalina which range in length from 20 to 36 feet.
