    KIRO News In Seattle reports
    on a bad way to start the work week for an Anacortes yacht building company launching at Cap Sante Marine:

    ANACORTES, Wash. —

    Coast Guard Crews are trying to salvage a capsized 90-foot yacht worth at least $10 million.

    The Coast Guard rescued six people from the yacht about 9 p.m. Sunday at the Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes.

    One of the passengers, who had to be rescued from the bilge at the bottom of the boat, was taken to the hospital. The other five people were not injured.

    The boat’s builder, Wes, said the vessel went over just as the crew put it in the water to deliver it to its owner.

    “The boat tilted to one side, and though not unusual, the amount of tilt was a little abnormal, so we paused to collect ourselves and assure that everything was going be right, and as we continued to lower it down, it pitched and that’s when it went over,” said Wes.

    No fuel leaked from the yacht. The Coast Guard has divers getting the fuel out of the boat and hope to have it lifted out of water by Monday night.

    The builder of the boat will have to cover salvage costs.

    The person who was buying the boat said they are heartbroken.
