Napoli football owner Aurelio De Laurentiis’s yacht catches fire in Italy
2015-09-21By Risa Merl

The owner of the Napoli football team and Italian film producer Aurelio De Laurentiis and 11 of guests had to be evacuated after his yacht caught fire in the Gulf of Naples.

Aurelio De Laurentiis’s 31 metre superyacht Angra caught fire while anchored off Posillipo, a small town near Naples, Italy. According to reports in a local news outlet, the fire spread quickly after 6 p.m. on September 20.

All 12 guests on board when the yacht fire broke out, including Laurentiis and his wife, had to abandon ship and are reported to have made it safely to shore.

The yacht fire was highly visible from shore, and many documented the yacht fire in photos and video. In the photo above, the yacht fire on Angra makes quite a scene with the iconic yacht Maltese Falcon in the foreground.

Ironically, former Italy captain and Napoli player Fabio Cannavaro posted video footage of the yacht fire on his Instagram without realising it was De Laurentiis’s yacht.

With design and naval architecture by Tommaso Spadolini, Angra was built by Tigullio. Angra is constructed in wood, with a mahogany hull, marine ply superstructure and teak decking.

The cause of the yacht fire on Angra in Italy is still unknown at this time. Initial reports say it's likely to be a total loss.
