Sealine Yacht Stolen and Aground in Bahamas

A fifteen meter Sealine motor yacht ended aground in Treasure Cay, Great Abaco, The Bahamas on the morning of first January.  According to reports the Sealine yacht was stolen from a yacht marina in Abaco, and was then found aground in Treasure Cay.  Boat and yacht stealing with these then being used for smuggling seems to be common in the area at this moment, especially since the Marina was badly damaged by Hurricane Dorian in September 2019, with the owner dying some months later, and the sons wanting to sell. 
This Sealine yacht was still aground in the same position as of end March.
The Sealine in this grounding is a T51 model released in 1999 and produced till 2004 to a design of Bill Dixon, offering three double cabins, a twin berth crew cabin aft and top speeds up to 32 knots with twin Volvo 715hp.  When released the T51 was Sealine flagship, with the model evolving into the T52 in 2005 with a profile windows changing looks and other layout changes.
