Manticore was a sailing yacht owned by Royal Canadian Navy Admiral Chuck Farrell. In 1995, he escorted Xenia Onatopp to the yacht, at the time anchored in Monte Carlo Bay, in order to spend the night together there. However, Xenia had other plans, and during foreplay, she killed the Admiral by crushing him with her thighs while her associate stole Farrell's identification. The following morning James Bond sneaked onto the boat and knocked out a deckhand by throwing him down a flight of steps. He then discovered the Admiral's naked body, hidden in a closet, and realized too late Onatopp's plan to steal the Eurocopter Tiger.
