  • That Sinking Feeling

    A Custom Line superyacht sank off the coast of Turkey but was prevented from falling to the sea floor in the nick of time. When the boat started taking water, no less than 10 people were on board, so it was sailing almost at full capacity.





    The incident took place off the coast of Seferihisar, in the western part of the country, local media reports. Available below is a video of the Coast Guard boat approaching the vessel, which, at this point, is more than halfway underwater. The causes of the incident are still under investigation.

    According to Boat International, the vessel seems to be a Custom Line Navetta 26 superyacht, with reports saying it’s called Kapky, but no official details are available as of the time of press.

    Superyacht Times reports that the captain called the Coast Guard right as he noticed the vessel was taking water at around 11am local time. Boats from the Coast Guard took the passengers to the shore before returning to rescue the vessel itself. Authorities were eventually able to drain some of the water out of the vessel before towing it to G?m?ld?r Fisherman’s Shelter.

    The Navetta 26 is an older superyacht model introduced by Ferretti’s Custom Line in 2008. With a total length of 26.22 meters (86 feet), which gives it its name, it offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in five spacious cabins and features plenty of outdoor space, divided between lounge and tanning areas, as well as a hot tub and a spacious beach club. Powered by twin 900 hp MAN R6E engines, a Navetta 26 sells for upwards of €2.5 million, or roughly $2.6 million at the current exchange rate.

    In other words, while there’s a happy ending to this accident in the fact that both passengers and the vessel were rescued by the Coast Guard, damages are most likely expensive.

      It’s amazing how $24 million (around R390 million) can be blown out of the water.

      Italian car industry boss Paolo Scudieri had just received his brand new 43,7-metre Aria SF superyacht from the shipyard when things took a turn south.

      The yacht was about to enjoy her maiden season in the Mediterranean when she went up in flames off the coast of Formentera, Spain, in the Balearic

      The struggle of the 505 Worlds is over, we had wind….

      Yesterday was a lay day and the plan was to catch up some races, but again there was no wind so the locals pulled out their boats and we cruised the harbour to Cobh and Cork.





      Today, inshore, there was no wind but once we got outside the harbour, the fleet was greeted with a 12-14kn from the N/E. We had wind and we were going sailing. It was a gradient breeze and expected to wane a little as

      The last day of Cowes Week featured short, action-packed races in a solid north-westerly gradient wind, culminating in a spectacularly busy finish line at the Royal Yacht Squadron. A risk of the wind dying in advance of an afternoon sea breeze prompted a change to the race schedule, with three committee boats used, in addition to the Royal Yacht Squadron line, to compress
