The Night Manager programme
« on: February 29, 2016, 18:31:27 PM »
If you have been watching the Night Manager on BBC TV, then you won't have missed the wonderful footage of La Fortalesa in the Bay of Pollensa.
http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-02-21/where-to-find-the-plush-hotels-and-lush-locations-in-the-night-manager

The restaurant featured in last night's programme was Cas Patro March .  I can't see a website for them although the restaurant is on Facebook.  Here is one link at least....http://www.luxurytastemaker.com/mallorca/2015/7/26/cas-patro-march-dei

And the wonderful boat that Roper and his party arrived at the restaurant in.....is very probably a Riva......http://rivagb.com/the-riva-legend/history/  - we spotted one in the Bay of Pollensa last year.  Just beautiful.  The Lamborghini of hand built boats.

I will have to look at the clips of the boat again but I thought it was > http://www.boutiquehotelcanalomar.com/images/alomar_invictus_280GT_en.pdf

These Invictus boats are obviously owned by someone connected with three 5* hotels in Palma ..... we stayed at the Canalomar (one of the three) in January this year.
Received a text today which read GNAB ~ I think that is bang out of order. It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty - there is clearly more room for more wine. I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

These people claim (on Facebook)  to have chartered the boats used for the filming......

What types (marques) of boats were used for the filming? I thought I spotted a Riva boat but a friend says it was an Invictus.... smile emoticon
