The tall ship used was 'Golden Plover' based in Airlie Beach, near Australia's Great Barrier Reef Whitsunday Islands where Dead Calm was filmed. A full size model ship was burned in the film and 'Golden Plover' lived to sail another day. See more »

I think this movie stands up very well. As when I first saw it, I think the extra thrill ending is tacked on, unnecessary. Otherwise, pacing, music, acting all combine for solid thriller. Nicole looks different, but almost more fabulous then. Revell's music is superb. Zane is great villain. Sailing knowledge seems first-rate. Tense, taut, highly recommended.
