The yacht was refloated during high tides with the help of two commercial boats. According to eyewitness reports, “the boat was towed from the beach that evening, it took them about forty minutes to get her off the shore.”

The cause of the incident is still being investigated. A police report states that three people were safely disembarked with no injuries.

An incident report has since been filed. The yacht ran into the beach at a speed of 6.8 knots during clear weather conditions.
