Fire sinks Nordhavn

Published: 11/18/2013




The 76-foot (23m) Nordhavn M/Y Kahu caught fire while at East Cowes Marina on the Isle of Wight on Nov. 6. Firefighters battled the blaze for 10 hours before the yacht eventually sank.

No cause has been determined. The yacht was raised a week later with 9,000 liters of fuel still in her tanks. It was unclear what, if any, restoration would take place.
