Sunseeker Super Yacht Fire in Hamilton Island

A 25 meter Sunseeker super yacht titled m/y Time Out went on fire in Hamilton Island, Queensland, Australia at around 1000 hours of 24 October.  Time Out burned out for about five hours before it was extinguished, with the fire fighting work hindered by windy weather. The yacht was reported unattended at the time of the fire, with the flames looking to have started from the main deck. The fire was contained to Time Out and did not extend to nearby yachts, with the emergency services working to save the yacht from sinking to avoid further pollution damage.  No one was injured in the fire, although some people who went to close to the yacht have suffered minor smoke inhalation.  
M/y Time Out is a Sunseeker 82 Yacht model produced from 2002 till 2007 in twenty units.  Designed by the Sunseeker design team and Don Shead, the 82 Yacht offers a four double cabins interior and is powered by twin Man or Cat engines from 1500 to 1700hp.  The 82 Yacht was replaced by the 86 Yacht mark.1 in 2007 produced for two years in only two units.
