Mystery yacht burns in St. Tropez

ADVERTISEMENT

A yacht that was anchored off the beach at Plage de Pampelonne in France caught fire in the early evening of July 17. Spectators on the beach took photos of the dark hull in flames. As The Triton went to press, regional  media reports had not yet named the yacht.

It was reported that  the 65-foot boat displayed a Belgian flag and was owned by a Flemish businessman, and that the fire was caused by “a technical defect in the lower deck.” It was also reported that people from other boats in the area helped those on board escape the flames and that no one was injured.
