Linssen Explorer Cruiser Aground in Scilly Island

A fourteen meter Linssen explorer cruiser with two persons onboard ended aground in the Isles of Scilly, on the South West of Great Britain on the morning of Thursday eight July.  The St. Mary RNLI life boat was directed to the area to assist in the accident finding the two persons in safety onboard the tender of the explorer cruiser.  At around 1600 hours with high tide and assistance from a private boat and life boat, the explorer cruiser was re-floated and directed to Tresco Marina where it was reunited with its owner.
The Linssen in the accident is a 470 Grand Sturdy AC Mk.2, an inland water way cruiser with low draft but also offshore capable with its full displacement type hull. The 470 Grand Sturdy has interiors with two double cabins located to bow and aft, galley dining, and a saloon in the split lever raised area.  The 470 Grand Sturdy was offered with a single or twin engines, the standard being twin 150hp. The 470 Grand Sturdy AC Mk.II, was presented in 2006 with the main difference to the Mk.1 coming aft, now having a build in integrated bathing platform with stairway to both sides.  Linssen are a bit unique in there size for being build fully in steel.
