39.6m My Song falls off cargo vessel during transportation

The 39.6-metre (130-foot) sailing yacht My Song has fallen off a cargo vessel during her transportation from the Caribbean to the Balearics.

On Saturday night (25th) the Baltic 130 superyacht was dramatically lost in the Mediterranean before reaching the Balearics, where she was expected to be safely deposited ahead of her appearance in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Porto Cervo, Italy (4th to 8th June).

Her owner, YCCS member Pier Luigi Loro Piana, had made plans for My Song to take part in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta as a returning winner – as well as having recently been declared Boat of the Year at the Italian Sailing Federation’s Sailor of the Year awards.

She was delivered to her owner by Finnish yard Baltic Yachts in 2016 and boasts an interior and exterior design by Nauta, with naval architecture courtesy of Reichel / Pugh Yacht Design.

Along with her 56-metre-high Southern Spars rig carrying North Sails and with an overall length of approaching 40 metres, My Song was among the larger full-carbon yachts on the racing scene with a displacement of 105 tonnes (including the 36-tonne lifting keel) and a maximum speed of over 30 knots.
