A limited-edition Chris-Craft Silver Bullet hit the big screen this weekend when “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” opened in theaters.


The 20-foot, limited-edition runabout was chosen for the “honeymoon” scenes between Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson, and Bella Swan, played by Kristin Stewart. In the scene they cruise off into matrimonial bliss to the Cullen family’s private island off the Brazilian coast.

The boat was shipped from Chris-Craft's plant in Sarasota, Fla., to Brazil for the first scenes. An additional Silver Bullet was sent to Vancouver, British Columbia, for other scenes.

Production of the Silver Bullet is limited to 150 and available for worldwide distribution.

The original boat used in the movie is in Connecticut and offered for sale by a private party.
