Watch: 33m superyacht goes up in flames and sinks in Ibiza

4 August 2022

The Bilgin motor yacht Good Vibes caught fire yesterday afternoon (August 2) in Ibiza. It is understood the yacht currently remains half-sunk in the port of Ibiza, after fire teams battled for five hours to extinguish the flames.

According to local media reports, the superyacht was “sailing” through the Es Freus marine reserve between Ibiza and Formentera at the time of the incident.

When the fire broke out, a commercial vessel stepped in to tow the boat to an empty dock in Ibiza port in order to help fire crews access the yacht.

It is understood that the blaze began in the engine room at around 2.30pm local time. After multiple fire teams battled the flames, the fire was put out around 8pm local time.

Footage on social media shows the yacht was experiencing a heavy stern list. She was towed across the marina, but was later seen capsized alongside a cargo vessel. 

No injuries have been reported.

A popular charter yacht, Good Vibes is a 2010 delivery from Turkish yard Bilgin. This model features accommodation for eight guests in five cabins and is crowned by a large sundeck with bar, jacuzzi and seating area.
