Marquis Yacht Totalled to Fire in Compass Marina

A Marquis 72 was totalled and lost to fire in Compass Cay, in the Exumas, on seventeen February, 2021. The boat started burning at Compass Marina and was then towed away to Compass Cay.  Some photos are running in social media showing the sank debris.  The boat was unattended at the time of the fire, which according to some reports lasted for over three hours before the boat was totalled. No further fire to neighbouring boats or yachts occurred, and no one was hurt in the accident.
The Marquis 720 was launched in 2008 and is a further evolution of the 690 model and produced until 2016.  Designed by Nuvalari Lenard the 720 offered a four double cabins interior, and was also offered in an enclosed bridge Tri-Deck called version.  The Marquis was powered by twin standard 1200hp with optional engines taking power up to 1676hp.  Marquis has in the last years changed direction and at the moment is only offering the M42 center console sport cruiser, which is a bit a pity as some of the models it produced, from the 420 Sport Coupe, to the 690 and 720 where very beautiful boats and have taken the test of time really well.
