Super Yacht Partially Sinks Near Chud Cay

A 25 meter super yacht titled m/y Adamo with only its captain onboard hit a reef near Chud Cay in The Bahamas, and partially sank with bow sticking out of the water on 29 April.  Some days before Adamo was reported for having a previous collision with a coral head reef in the Yellow Banks, damaging its running gear, with the captain having a brawl with the crew and guests and these abandoning the yacht in Nassau. Because the yacht was single handed by the captain the insurance refused cover and assistance in salvaging Adamo, which in the meantime became a navigational hazard drifting around partially sank in the area.
M/y Adamo is a Peer Gynt 85 build in Turkey in 2008 to a design of Bill Dixon.  Adamo previously named m/y Mr K, and Rubber Duck offers guest accommodation for eight guests in four cabins, and two crew in two cabins, and powered by twin Man 1550hp reaches top speeds up to 23 knots.   Adamo is the only Peer Gynt 85 unit launched, tough the hull, but longer and a bit different super structure was the same basis for the Peri 29 which sold in five units from 2007 to 2011.
