Two yachts were damaged by fire at Marmaris Yacht Marina in Marmaris, Turkey, yesterday (Jan. 4), according to several online sources. Motoryachts The One, a 73m Lurssen, and Barbie, a 52m Al Jadaf, burned. The extent of damage is not known and no injuries have been reported at this time.

Eliad Hagiladi of Yacht Marine reported online that the fire began about 2 a.m onboard M/Y The One and that M/Y Barbie was on fire about 30 minutes later. Hagiladi said winds were about 35 knots with heavy rains, and that neighboring yachts moved out of the marina to anchor.
