Out-News = Super Yacht Trouble in North Liguria Sea

A 25 meter super yacht departing from Aregai Marina on fourth November had to make an emergency stop in San Remo at around 1100 hours, just after five nautical miles into its journey due to hull damage under way resulting in water entering inside and a risk of sinking.  The super yacht made an emergency mooring in San Remo yacht marina and was immediately provided with assistance from the local Fire Fighting Squad.  The operation resulted even more difficult with the area having an orange to yellow alarm for waves, and wind forecast reported to go over fifty knots in the morning in the Ligurian sea area from Ventimiglia down to La Spezia.  At around 1300 hours the 25 meter super yacht was reported safe, while a second pump was being called.  At 1400 hours after a hull inspection, the super yacht was found having two holes in the bottom, so it will be impossible for it to navigate to any repair facility, with a huge crane being called to lift up for a temporary fix and then taking her to a specialist yacht yard for repairs.
The 25 meters motor yacht Beatris involved in this accident is of an Italian design and build from the end seventies to mid eighties era.  The design suggests to be one of the Liguria North West Italy builds.  Still trying to find out what make and model this might be so if you got a guess feel free to leave a message.
