Accident as superyacht Fox launches
by Raphael Montigneaux
Following the accident which occured during the launch of the superyacht Fox, the owner’s representative and Yacht Solutions have released the following:
"Due to reasons as yet unknown the 60 metre Motor Yacht *Fox sadly partially sank as she was launched from the slipway at a Bangkok shipyard where she had undergone a major refit. Surveyors and insurance companies are now assessing the damage to see how best the vessel can be salvaged. All parties concerned in the refit who have expended a huge amount of time and effort into the project are devastated and respectfully request that the incident is not discussed, or publicized in any way beyond this statement. At this point in time there is little point in surmising, speculating or guessing what went wrong as a full investigation is still ongoing and a full report of the facts will be known upon conclusion of that investigation.*"
