Ferretti Super Yacht Sinks Near Paxos

A 27 meter Ferretti super yacht titled Green Whisper with three persons onboard hit the Yfalos Panagia reef while cruising between the Island of Paxos and mainland Greece, on the morning of second July.  After the collision the Greek sent three boats to assist the crew, and put the vessel to safety. After the collision the super yacht was tilting to port side due to the damage sustained to that underwater side of the hull.  With the crew safe and taken to the port of Gaios for a health check, the Greek Coast Guard marked the yacht and the area, for safety to other navigators.  Green Whisper was recovered on the eight July.
Green Whisper is a Ferretti 880 model from 2005 designed by Zuccon with a four double cabins and two crew cabin lower deck layout.  This Ferretti 880 was powered by twin MTU 2030hp which give it a top speed up to 31 knots. Ferretti built fourteen 880 from 2003 till 2006, with the model becoming the 881 with hull window upgrades from 2007 till 2012, and then some other thirty units being made.  Ferretti's flagship model from 2003 till 2012 the 880 and 881 was replaced by the 960 as the brands largest model in 2013.  Ferretti also offered an RPH raised pilot house version of the 880/881.
