Default Wouldn't want to be this Captain

This 40-metre motoryacht went hard aground on the rocks off Saint-Jean-Cap Ferrat around 4:30a.m. on Saturday morning, May 30. Strong wind from the east caused the yacht to drag anchor, according to local news reports.

Eight people – six crew and the two owners – reportedly were on board and had to be evacuated. The captain remained on board to help with recovery operations.

Of immediate concern was the yacht’s load of diesel fuel, which reportedly is leaking from one tank due to damage caused by her grounding.

Built by Alucraft in Turkey to a design by Vincenzo Ruggiero, the blue-hulled motor yacht Pari was launched in 1989.
