Super Yacht Destroyed by Fire in Massachusetts

A 25 meter super yacht titled m/y Miss Dunia burned down to fire at Pope Islands Fleet marina in New Bedford, Massachusetts, at around 1730 hours of Monday 30 August.  The US Coast Guard and New Bedford and Fairhaven fire departments attended and went to Pope Islands marina to control and extinguish the fire.  Even though no injuries happened in this fire a dinner party was reported being made onboard before the yacht went ablaze, even though the number of guests onboard has not been mentioned.  Miss Dunia was reported carrying under two thousand litres of fuel and had a pollution spread to over 200 meters from the wreck, with a second boom being added to contain the environmental damage. M/y Miss Dunia arrived to Pope Islands Fleet Marina from Florida three weeks prior.
Owned by Pope Islands Fleet Marina owner Lars Vinejerud II, m/y Miss Dunia previously named Lady B is a Horizon 82 from 2007 with the extended cockpit and enclosed pilot house option.  Designed inhouse by Horizon this 82 offered accommodation for six guests in three double cabins, with crew accommodation for three in two cabins, and was powered by twin Cats 1650hp engines with a top speed up to 23 knots. 23 Horizon 82 models where built from 2003 to 2009, with the model replaced by the E78 in 2011.
