Super Yacht Saved from Sinking in Mykonos

A Cantieri di Pisa super yacht of 33 meters hit a reef and was saved from sinking in the gulf of Ornos, to the South of the island of Mykonos on the afternoon of Tuesday 26 July.  The super yacht had water intrusion after it hit low bottom and damaged part of its bow area, allowing for water intrusion. With quick intervention by the Greek coast guard and fire fighting squad the super yacht was saved from taking more and eventual sinking, and on 2030 hours of Wednesday was reported safely moored in a berth.
The super yacht in this accident is m/y Ion Fedra previously named Ion, and launched as Astir in 1999.  A Cantieri di Pisa Akhir 110 build of fiberglass and project of Pierluigi Spadolini, Ion Fedra has an interior accommodation for ten guests in five cabins, with crew space for five in three cabins.  Ion Fedra is powered by the large engine option of twin MTU 2775hp reaching speeds up to 29 knots and a cruise of 26.  Ion Feddra was last sold in 2012 and is reported owned by Greek ship magnate G. Kampanis.  Seven Cantieri di Pisa Akhir 110 are reported to have been made with it also available in a wood build.  The Akhir 110 was replaced by the Christian Gatto designed 108 in 2008.
