Out-News = Wellcraft Grounded in Malta

A Wellcraft Excel sport cruiser of about eight meters in length finished aground on Saturday 5 July afternoon, after breaking free from its swing mooring in Qawra, on the island of Malta.  This resulted in the cruiser being carried by the strong winds and currents of about thirty knots, for about a nautical mile from its swing mooring berth in Qawra, and finishing aground in the Salina area.  The Wellcraft Excel sport cruiser stood in the scene for a few days as its position, made salvage operation rather difficult to make.
The Wellcraft Excel in the picture is a 26SE model produced from 1996 to the end of the nineties.  The 26SE features a four berths, two plus two interior, and was powered by a single engine with stern drive propulsion.
