Princess Yacht Ends Beached in Calvi After Storm

A 26 meter Princess super yacht named m/y Vista Me ended beached on Calvi Beach in Corsica during a storm on the night between Friday twelfth and Saturday thirteen August.  The storm with gale winds and torrential rains, reached forty knots or Force Eight Beaufort scale winds.  Vista Me cut its swing mooring lines, and along with six other sailing yachts ended beached on Calvi Beach.  Twelve hours after the storm all yachts with the exception of Vista Me where refloated by SNSM voluntary corps, with the Princess super yacht needing further inspection and work for refloating to minimize further damage.
Vista Me is a 2019 Princess Y85, designed by Pininfarina for exterior and naval architecture by Olesinski.  The Princess Y85 has a four double cabins accommodation and is powered by twin Man 1900hp engines which give her a top speed up to 31 knots.  Still in production today the Y85 was introduced in 2019 with the model receiving a full hull window update in 2022, and so far 32 hulls have been produced.
