OMG are you kidding me? wow!!
Terrible... I am quite curious as to the sequence of problems that must have led to this terrible material loss. Thankfully the crew were rescued. Does 8 sound a bit low for safe manning of a vessel that size? Although they were quite close to shore so maybe thats why (iirc a 40m vessel has 6 minimum in open water)? (Not that it makes any difference to why it sank, just that the flag state will surely go to safe manning verifications first).
I'm curious to read this accident report if there ever is one... Its a pitty to lose a nice vessel like this. I hope everyone is well (given the circumstances) and that no one suffers unfair loss.
8 is too few to move and use it properly.
The safe manning ain't much.
Captain and two licensed deck officers, 1 x Chief Eng, 1 x 2nd Eng will be about it.
There will most likely also be a couple of deck hands and a cook in the lot somewhere.
Just checked the CI guide, for them it would be 7, so i suppose manning was alright... obviously that wasnt the "crew" (i.e. full crew), they didnt have guests and probably were waiting or semi-waiting around... a great loss nonetheless..
"Talisman C1" has a new name, "Talisman Maiton"
Proteksan & Turquoise has launched their new flagship, the 73-meter "Vicky"!
according to Turkish Newspapers Proteksan Turquoise Chairman Hayati Kamhi is found this morning death!!!
Oh goodness! No...!
Hearing that makes me feel very sad... I have never met him but he managed a great yard.. my condolence goes to Family/friends and the yard...
Condolences to family and friends.
Sadly it is a suspected suicide:

I hope this isn't related to the pressure from...the "Yogi" incident.
There is quite a bit of new (at least to me) information today on PMY, under "Why Did the Megayacht Yogi Sink?"
could not post a link here ...
It is not certain yet because all the investigations are kept private. It was passing from Turkey to Greece, had some technical problems in force 8 sea, then it sank, delivery crew was saved.
A tribute to a very lovely yacht...Shall miss her indeed.

and one for "Kinta" (ex."Vinydrea")
Wow "Vicky" has many nice toys stored there and a BEAUTIFUL modern and cozy interior...I really like it! I was also not aware of such a big pool on her sundeck. I am pleasantly surprised! What do the other YF members think?
They finally added the new pictures! I was looking at P&T for so long for the new pics but all they had were the exterior photos and then renderings of the interior. Looks like the interior really came together well!
There are now a few pics of the 75-meter in-build at P&T, model and more renderings and all. I find from one or two of those front quarter views she looks a little like "ACE" is some respects.
The 47.5-meter Proteksan-Turquoise classic yacht "Vajoliroja" is renamed "Amphitrite".
