Disco Volante was the stage name of the yacht in the James Bond film Thunderball; the real life boat was once owned by Trump and was called the Trump Princess; it is currently owned by Al-Waleed bin Talal, a member of the Saudi royal family. The print was beautifully framed by Fine Art Framing in Tempe.
