Stolen luxury yacht crashes into six yachts

This year is shaping up to be a strong year for new superyacht arrivals, but there have also been several major yacht disasters that have made headlines across the world.

On October 2 a 24 metre luxury yacht was stolen from Miami Beach Marina and subsequently crashed into at least six other boats, according to local police.

After the crash, witnesses said the thief abandoned the yacht and jumped into the water. Police are still trying to hunt down the suspect and no-one has yet been arrested. 

Miami Fire Rescue and the U.S. Coast Guard arrived at the scene shortly after the crash in a bid to prevent the yacht from taking on water but unfortunately had to stop once it began to capsize.  

While the affected boats suffered severe damage as a result of the crash, no one was injured.
