58m superyacht Unbridled runs aground off of Miami

58m superyacht Unbridled runs aground off of Miami

The 58.22 metre luxury yacht Unbridled ran aground off of Miami Beach, Florida, the United States Coast Guard reported on Thursday.

Unbridled, which has a draught of 2.8 metres, hit the shallow sand in Mallory Channel at 11:05 a.m. on May 14 and became stuck in a high-traffic area in the waterways of Miami. According to the NOAA, the low tide for Miami Beach is at 12:00 p.m, so Unbridled hit ground not far from mean low water.

The Coast Guard Station Miami Beach sent a boat crew to assess the problem, and they set up a safety zone around the grounded superyacht. Passing boats were required to stay at least 20 feet away from Unbridled, and the Coast Guard enforced a temporary no-wake zone around the yacht.

The 14 guests on board Unbridled were safely evacuated, and no injuries have been reported. Tow Boat U.S. was called by the yacht’s owner to evaluate Unbridled’s condition after the grounding.

AIS data now shows that Unbridled has been freed from sand and moved to a nearby dock in Miami.

Launched by US builder Trinity Yachts in 2009, the aluminium, full-displacement yacht Unbridled features exterior design by Geoff Van Aller and interior styling by Patrick Knowles with accommodations for 10 guests.
