16 of the biggest superyacht disasters

If Only catches fire off Antibes

The 39 metre If Only was pictured off the coast of Antibes on August 17 with huge plumes of smoke billowing from her superstructure. It is not yet known what caused the fire, although an electrical fault in the engine room was mentioned by local reports.

Emergency services were quickly on the scene and successfully rescued all seven guests and four crewmembers, according to Nice Matin, although a firefighter was later admitted to Antibes hospital with smoke inhalation. An investigation into the fire is expected to begin in the next few days, although the incident is not being treated as suspicious.

Built by Feadship to a design by J.F.H. Roger and launched in 1974, If Only underwent a major refit in 1989. This steel and aluminium yacht can accommodate a maximum of eight guests and nine crewmembers.
