After the recent sinking of superyacht Yogi Proteksan Turquoise the 60m motor yacht's builders have released the following official statement:
Proteksan Turquoise, builders of the 60 metre MY Yogi, regrets to report that the yacht sank off the coast of the island of Skyros, Greece on the morning of February 17.
The yacht had left the shipyard in Turkey, where it had been undergoing some guarantee re-paint work, on February 15th and was on her way to the Mediterranean when it was hit by gale force weather conditions off Skyros. All eight crew members were rescued by a Puma helicopter from the Hellenic Coast Guard and are presently safe on Skyros, where they will stay until being transferred to Athens.
It is unclear at the moment as to what caused the vessel to sink and that will not be known until representatives from the shipyard have been able to speak to the Captain and crew, which should take place over the next two days. MY Yogi was built to MCA rules and also to French Registry safety standards and the construction was under ABS surveillance and classification.
Proteksan Turquoise would like to thank everyone who has assisted in the rescue of the crew members, especially the Hellenic Coast Guard for the utmost skill and bravery they have shown during this unfortunate incident.
