Multimillion Dollar Yacht Docked At Nelson’s Dockyard Damaged By Fire

A multimillion-dollar yacht anchored at Nelson’s Dockyard caught ablaze, due to what is believed to be an electrical problem, Thursday afternoon.
According to the All Saints Fire Station, they received a call at 3:42 pm and immediately rushed to the scene where they were able to contain the fire and save the 125-foot yacht from being completely destroyed.
Also there were three crew members living aboard the vessel at the time; no one was harmed.
Reports are that the electrical panel was destroyed as the fire spread to the engine room and guest areas.
The entire cabin was smoke-filled and the smoke damage is said to be extensive.
Although it is believed that the fire originated in the electrical panel, Fire Chief Elvis Weaver said an investigation will take place nonetheless to determine the precise cause.

    • Agree! Need at least two. One stationed at is St. Johns to cover the areas between Round South to the Runaway and Blue Waters area. And one stationed at Nelson’s Dockyard to cover the Heritage Site, Falmouth Harbor, St James, Mill Reef and so on. The Floating Fire Engine would be a great asset to tender fire at beach hotels utilizing an extended hose and the sea water. Needless to mention fire on cruise ship and down town areas in proximity to the water front.

  1. The fire was contained by the crew and surrounding yachting community. The local fire service was very late to the scene and extremely I’ll prepared.
