A new Ocean Alexander 85 was destroyed in a fire on July 10 while moored at Roche Harbor Marina in Friday Harbor, Wash., for display and sale.

The fire was contained to this vessel, but a cause has not yet been determined. No one was injured in the fire. The yacht was valued at $4.5 million.

“We would like to extend a sincere thank you and heartfelt appreciation for the efforts of the fire department for arriving in a very timely manner and making heroic efforts to save the vessel,” company President John Chueh wrote in a press statement.
