42m yacht runs aground in Bahamas this morning

M/Y Unforgettable, a 42m Royal Denship, hit the rocks leaving the harbor at Albany Marina on New Providence Island in the Bahamas this morning.

“The yacht ran aground leaving Albany Marina just before 0700 this morning,” Capt. Michael Murphy wrote in an e-mail. “Suspect mechanical issues and attempts to free are unsuccessful.”

No injuries are reported but the yacht is blocking the entrance.

Information will updated as it becomes available.

UPDATE:

Derek Roderick from Albany Marina replied after 3 p.m to an e-mail request for information and wrote: “The vessel is clear and underway, it was not a dramatic scene. Three feet of the bow of the vessel was on the sheer wall during an out going tide, once the tide came up, she made way.”
