Tender loses control and crashes into 38m superyacht in Ibiza

A tender has crashed into the side of a 38m Custom Line superyacht anchored in Ibiza today, according to reports. 

Several reports emerged of the incident on social media earlier today, with witnesses stating that the tender was being operated by two yacht crew members, who fell off at a speed close to 30 knots without wearing a killcord. 

The tender was then reported to have driven around in circles for approximately 15 minutes before crashing into the yacht twice. 

The yacht crew members, who are thought to be from nearby vessel, Le Grand Bleu, were thankfully unharmed.

Reports suggest that a second tender, which is also thought to be from the 113m superyacht, appeared shortly after the incident in order to inspect the damage.

Currently believed to be owned by Eugene Schvidler, Le Grand Bleu was built by Kusch Yachts in 2000 for US telecommunicates magnate, John McCaw, before being sold to Russian billionaire, Roman Abromovich.
