Explorer Yacht Ends Beached in Cannigione

A sixteen meter explorer yacht ended up beached while at anchor in Cannigione beach in the Arzachena gulf in North Sardinia on the night of fifteen August at around 2200 hours.  The yacht was unattended at the time of the accident when a strong North East wind entered the bay and dragged it to the soft rock area of the Cannigione beach.  The yacht was saved later in the night and morning of sixteen August and taken to a marina for inspection of damage.  It was reported that some smaller boats where also damaged near Porto Cervo in the Eastern part of Sardinia.
The explorer yacht in this accident is an Estensi Maine 530 designed by Zuccheri and presented in 2006, an immediate success, for its spacious living interior with three double cabins in a semi-custom layout. Twin 450hp engines gave the Maine 530 a top speed up to 24 knots and an eighteen cruise. Estensi sold 35 units of the Maine 530 with the model evolving in the 535 with new hull windows in 2016.
