ADVERTISEMENT

The Herald in Scotland has reported that two crew aboard the 139-foot (42m) S/Y Rebecca were taken to a hospital yesterday (June 19) when the yacht ran aground in West Loch Tarbert on Harris.


According to the story, one crew member has a head wound, the other a slashed wrist. Their condition is unknown.


The U.S.-flagged ketch had just finished a refit and its 15-year ABS survey at the Pendennis yard in Falmouth, UK. The refit included an upgrade to the hydraulics, electric, alarm and monitoring systems; the installation of new generators; a full overhaul of her original main engine; and the addition of a sewage treatment plant on board, according to Pendennis’ Web site.


Layout modifications included making more room for books in the library and an overhaul of her interiors. It also received a new teak deck, an overhaul of all deck hardware, and a paint job.


The aluminum-hulled yacht is a regular in the superyacht racing circuit.
