Bilgin Motor Yacht D'Angleterre Catches Fire in Mallorca

Bilgin Motor Yacht D'Angleterre Catches Fire in Mallorca

A 33 metre Bilgin motor yacht named D'Angleterre has been captured on fire in Mallorca, Spain, on Saturday August 24.

A dramatic video shows plumes of smoke billowing out from below deck before flames begin to engulf the entire aft portion of the yacht.

The yacht was sitting off the Es Trenc Beach on the southern coast of Mallorca when it caught fire. Fifteen people were on board at the time of the blaze. Everyone was rescued and no injuries have been reported.

Maritime Rescue were alerted at 3pm and sent two rescue boats to extinguish the fire. According to the Majorca Daily Bulletin, two crew members and the captain remained on the yacht until 5.30pm.

Maritime Rescue reported that the yacht ended up sinking five miles south of Cabo Blanco as it was towed to Palma.

The cause of the blaze remains unknown.

D'Angleterre was built by Turkish shipyard Bilgin Yachts and delivered in 2008. She was designed by Mahir Bestas with Kerim Demir developing the naval architecture. Offered for charter, she was able to sleep up to 12 guests with a crew of five.

The superyacht had a top speed of 24 knots and a maximum cruising range of 400 nautical miles. Power comes from two 1825.0hp Caterpillar C-32 diesel engines.
