Motor Yacht Saved from Sinking in Malta

A 20 meter motor yacht with ten persons onboard was saved from sinking at around 0900 hours of Sunday tenth July in the limits of Munxar, near St. Thomas bay, Marsascala to the South East of the island of Malta.  The guests onboard went into panic as a passing by kayaker advised them  that the yacht looks getting low aft and is taking on water.  Immediate the assistance of the Malta Civil Protection and Sea-Patrol who took the guests to safety and with a high pressure water pump saved the yacht from taking further water and sink.  
This motor yacht is a Cantieri di Pisa Akhir 20 S from 1990.  Designed by Pier Luigi Spadolini, the Akhir 20 S has an interior with three double cabins, and a crew cabin, and powered by twin Man 1100hp reaches speeds up to thirty knots.  The Akhir 20 S was semi-custom build to order from 1990 till mid late nineties and was offered as all Pisa models of the time in both fiberglass and or wood build option. The Akhir series from Cantieri di Pisa designed up until the early 2000s by Spadolini was a trend setter in yacht design from the first eighteen meter model launched in 1972 to the S series evolution which launched with the 22 S in 1986.
