Classic Yacht Saved from Sinking in Camerota

A 24 meter classic Cantieri di Pisa super yacht titled m/y Dea Tuda with ten persons onboard nearly sank near Marina di Camerota, to the South of Salerno at around 12:30 hours of fourteen August.  The classic yacht was cruising about one nautical mile away from the coast, near Marina di Camerota when a hull breach materialized, and the yacht started to be flooded with its engine room semi-flooding in some minutes.  Immediate the response of the Italian Guardia Costiera which assisted the guests and crew, taking them to safety, and then with the help of the harbour assistants of Marina di Camerota towed the yacht to the marina jetty, and with water pumps saved it from sinking.  
Motor yacht Dea Tuda is a Cantieri di Pisa Pegasus 24. Released in 1974 to a design of Pier Luigi Spadolini, the Pegasus 24 has an interior with four double cabins, and a crew cabin forward for three persons and is powered by twin MTU 900hp as standard, or optional 1350hp, reaching speeds up to 32 knots with the large engines.  When released the Pegasus 24 was Cantieri di Pisa flagship for three years replacing the Pegasus 23 as the yard largest offer, replaced by the modern looking Akhir 26 in 1984.
