Alicante dry dock fire claims 31m Ordisi

The 31 metre motor yacht Ordisi caught fire in a dry dock in Alicante earlier this week (January 6), leading to ten workers being treated for smoke inhalation. Nine were later hospitalised for further treatment before eventually being discharged.

Local publication Diario Informacion reports that the blaze broke out at 10:30am local time and shortly afterwards 21 firefighters were dispatched to the scene. The cause is believed to be an engine room welding accident. Flames burned for several hours and the yacht appears to be a total loss.

Launched by Astondoa in 2002 as part of the Spanish yard's 102 GLX series, Ordisi was built from a GRP hull and superstructure, and fitted with a total fuel capacity of 12,600 litres.
