Previously, YachtHarbour wrote about Jay-Z and Beyonce aboard Shahid Khan's $200-million 95-metre superyacht Kismet.

Few days ago, superyacht Kismet was spotted during filming of the new Michael Bay movie "Six Underground" in Taranto (Italy), which has already won the record of the biggest Netflix production. The streaming company has invested 150 million dollars for the realization of the action film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona and Corey Hawkins.

The production has literally occupied the city, after the first shots in Florence and Tuscany. Kismet also arrived at the 30th of September. It is one of the most luxurious yachts in the world, which was moored next to the Aragonese Castle of Taranto.

Netflix has chartered the boat for $1.2 million from its owner. 95-meter superyacht Kismet was built in 2014 by Lurssen and is owned by Shadid Khan, Pakistani-American billionaire and business tycoon, who is also the owner of the Fulham FC and Jacksonville Jaguars. The yacht's interior has been designed by Reymond Langton Design and her exterior styling is by Espen Oeino.

A party scene with around eighty guests and some shootings was shot on the boat. Meanwhile, the city has already been the protagonist of several action scenes and an explosion right next to the yacht.

The film focuses on the story of a group of 6 billionaires led by Ryan Reynolds. Each of the 6 members of the team has faked dead to become part of this group ready to fight criminals.Taranto will become in the film a Middle Eastern city, protagonist of shootings and attacks. The city, in fact, is led by a dictator victim of a scandal, for whose resolution requires the intervention of the Reynolds team.

The action sequences are truly spectacular, especially the one on the revolving bridge connecting the Borgo Antico and the Borgo Nuovo and overlooking the city waterway. The sequence has foreseen the opening of the bridge and in the video below we see Manuel Garcìa Rulfo walking as the structure moves. 

Kismet is available for charter starting from $1,200,000 + expenses, as well as available for sale with the price upon request both through Moran Yacht & Ship.
