A 26 meter Ferretti Super Yacht hit a shallow underwater reef off the Eastern side of Doganbey Island in the coast of Seferihisar Western Turkey, and started sinking on the morning of 29 June at around 1100 local time.  Ten people where onboard the super yacht when it started to take on water, with the Turkish coast guard immediately assisting and taking the passengers to safety on shore land, and later in the day starting salvaging operations.  The Ferretti Custom Line super yacht was reported saved from total sinking the night of the same day.
The super yacht in this accident is a Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 26, titled Kapky build in 2009.  Designed by Zuccon and presented in 2007, the Navetta 26 is the smallest from Ferretti's off shot super yacht Custom Line brand which launched in 1996 and presented its first model the 94 in 1998.  The Navetta 26 offered four or five double cabins accommodation with two crew cabins, and was powered by twin Man 900hp or 1100hp engines which gave her top speed up to sixteen knots with the large engines.  Eleven Navetta 26 have been reported made up till 2010, with the model replaced by the updated 26 Crescendo.
