The Sudan boat from Death on the Nile film

Don't know if it has been posted but The Sudan boat (Death on the Nile film) is in Luxor. I was lucky enough to be allowed on it last week for a look around. Got some great pics :)

This is the boat used in the TV "Death On The Nile" not the Peter Ustinov film of the same title. That boat was called Memnon.

Ras2 is correct; it was the Memnon, not the Sudan which appeared in the Peter Ustinov film.

Rather than trying to figure out which websites to believe, you could always y'know ... just watch the film :o)

Memnon is somewhere on the Nile for sale:

On the DVD for Death on the Nile there is a documentary that details the making of the film with info about the boat and the replica sets.
