Out-News = Sunseeker Yacht Fire in Bahamas

A Sunseeker Manhattan 66 M/Y Vanish was destroyed on the morning of 27 June at Valentines Marina, Harbor Island, Bahamas.  The yacht owner and his four relatives plus a captain where all onboard and jumped for safety in the water when the fire started.  The fire is reported to have initiated from the galley, and this could have had far worse consequences being the yacht moored in close proximity to the fuel station.  The Sunseeker yacht was destroyed and sank couple hours later, and damaged about thirty meters to the dock including some service pedestals of the Valentines Marina, with some services interrupted and to be restarted back on first July.
M/Y Vanish was the latest version of Sunseeker Manhattan 66 model which was produced from 2016 up to 2019, and is replaced in 2020 by the 68 model.  The Sunseeker Manhattan 66 offers a four double cabins lower deck layout, with a two berth crew cabin aft.  Power for the Manhattan 66 is by twin engines from Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod propulsion, or Man 1200hp with shafts.
