Superyacht "Yogi" Sinks

Well, this is mighty unfortunate. Completed in March, 2011 by Proteksan Turquoise in Turkey, she wasn't even a year old.

A 60 meter luxury yacht cruising the Aegean sea sank off the coast of Greece. According to Turkey's Daily News, the yacht "suffered mechanical failure in gale-force winds," and began to take in water. The eight French passengers and crew aboard were rescued after the captain sent out a distress signal.

The scene is reminiscent of the luxury cruise Costa Concordia, which hit a reef off the coast of Italy's Giglio island on Jan. 13 when the captain brought the ship too close to shore. It killed 17 people, and 16 people remain missing and are presumed dead.

It's a sad sight to behold. According to Captain Jean Louis Carrel, "it was [down to] engine problems. It was the exhaust of the engine." Thing is, vessels built to this standard should survive one compartment flooding so something must've gone terribly wrong.

I just saw that on the news this morning. That is crazy. Such a beautiful boat, I'll try to find some pictures of the interior which is amazing. Really sad to see a new stunning boat sink like this, but it's great that no one was injured.

Insurance company must not be too pleased now.

Crazy winds if a 200ft boat goes down.
