72m superyacht performs mid-Atlantic passenger rescue

Crew members aboard 72-metre (236-foot) charter superyacht Axioma undertook a mid-Atlantic rescue after a medical emergency on a nearby sailing yacht.

The Dunya-built vessel received an emergency call at 8:40am on 11th December, with the 16-metre (52-foot) sailing yacht Mowe 2 asking for medical assistance for a man on board suffering with severe abdominal pain.

The Axioma crew immediately alerted medical authorities before hauling together the yacht’s medical equipment in the main saloon. They then sent a rescue boat over to Mowe 2 to collect the patient and bring him on board.

Supported by the international SOS system MedAire, the crew administered aid to the patient before transferring him on to the medical ship Esperanza del Mar via a rescue boat at 4:30pm.

Axioma has now continued her journey to the island of St Martin for the winter Caribbean charter season. Delivered in 2013, Axioma was designed by Sterling Scott and boasts accommodation for up to 12 guests and 20 crew.
