A new 125-foot Westport yacht ran into a dock Port Angeles Boat Haven in Port Angeles, Washington, on Monday (Oct. 7). Property damage was sustained to floats, a dock piling, and adjacent boats, according to Dave Hagiwara, general manager at Westport Yachts in Washington. 

Hagiwara could not speculate as to what caused the yacht to accelerate. The unnamed yacht was under contract to sell and was in the process of fueling for transit to Fort Lauderdale, he said by phone yesterday.

As part of the incident, all required authorities were notified, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the local sheriff department, and the Washington State Department of Ecology.

“There was no environmental damage, no boats were sunk, and there was no oil sheen,” Hagiwara said. “The biggest thing to reiterate is that no one was injured, thankfully.”
