Staluppi said his Bond fixation started as a kid growing up in Brooklyn, when he watched "Goldfinger" in the theater. (His favorite Bond film is "Moonraker.")
After making his fortune, he started building Bond boats.
When asked how much he's spent on Bond boats over the years, he said. "I have no idea. I never tried to add that up. I'd be scared."

But while yachts are mostly seen by the wealthy as a money pit, Staluppi has been a wise investor. He's flipped several of his Bond boats for a profit, and he charters them when he's not using them.
"My last boat, we made very good money," he said. "After the season was over, we made over two million bucks, after paying the expenses."
He said he usually gets tired of a boat after two years.
"It keeps me young, it keeps me motivated and keeps me working hard, so I can afford the next big boat," he said.
