Man Killed in Boat Collision Near Portisco, Sardinia

On Saturday 29th May late morning time at 1130 hours a Tiara sportfish cruiser of twelve meters in length collided on a sailing yacht, killing the 69 year old skipper and owner of the sail craft, and leaving in shock his wife.  In the impact the 69 year old Alberto was hit and later thrown in the water and cut by the propellers.  The accident happened in a location between Portisco and Porto Cervo, half a mile away from the coast, in the famous and busy in this time of the year Esmerald coast.  Nothing happened to the four crew members of the sportfish cruiser, who where later interrogated by the Olbia police.
The sportfish cruiser in the accident is a Tiara 3600 Open produced between 2004 and 09, and powered by twin Cummins 380hp with line shaft propulsion topping out a 32 knots top speed.  The Tiara 3600 Open offered an open plan cabin layout with a forward double queen berth, C-shaped dinette to starboard, and opposite galley.  A shower head was located on entry to the cabin deck to port side.  From 2010 onwards the 3600 while using the same hull was hugely modified on the upper structure with a sleeker design, and also came available with Volvo 370hp and IPS pod propulsion offer.
