IN THE PRISONER: The boat used as MS Polotska in "Checkmate" and in "Many Happy Returns" as the Gunrunners' ship.
IN REALITY: The boat used as MS Polotska in "Checkmate" is the same boat used in "Many Happy Returns" as the Gunrunners' ship. The boat was, in reality, the "Breda", at the time owned by North Wales residents Mr and Mrs Beer (who were paid the princely sum of £10 per day for use of the boat). The exterior sequences were filmed at Abersoch (on the Coast of North Wales), with all the interior and close-up shots filmed at a replica at MGM Studios.
The boat is now in private hands in Teddington. A full history of the boat, including images, can be found at: http://www.breda.uk.com
