Out-News = Super Yacht Oceans Five Sinking Eight Miles from Sardinia

Super Yacht Oceans Five has capsized off Villasimius near Cagliari in Sardinia eight nautical miles away from Capo Carbonara.  Apparently the super yachts hit something and started to have water coming in from one of its propeller lines, along with problems to one of its engine and rudder.  The crew of five where saved by nearby cruising super yacht M/Y Silver Dream a 43 meter 2003 build Warren Yachts and then transported by the Italian Coast Guard to Villasimius marina.
News are bit mixed online on the size of the yacht most stating 25 and some thirty meters, and its flag with the majority saying it was Maltese and a couple it was Dutch.  Vessel finder gives it as Oceans Five a motor yacht of thirty meters with a beam of eight and the flag to be Maltese.  Searching for Oceans Five to find what this super yacht might be we found two names coming up; a 2004 Dalla Pieta DP80 fast super sport yacht which surely it is not, and or the hull two of the just delivered Dreamline DL30, the second most probably being the case.  Waiting for confirmation for what is it or not.  The super yacht was still drifting submerged in capsized form as pictured above and the ownership declared it started operation on recovery procedure, made very difficult on the day due to the Westerly Force Six Beaufort wind and rough seas.
Out-News.  So this section was abandoned over time on PowerYacht, and the idea behind it at first was to bring unsatisfied owners here and show with pictures what went wrong on the boats; hull failure, engine not performing etc etc.  Now I am going to modify it to accidents that happen all over the globe.  With stuff happening every week during the season this will make it more of interest to you our viewers.
