60 Meter Yacht Sinks Off Greek Coast

Posted on

Yogi Superyacht Sinks

YOGI IN THE NEWS

The Greek Coast Guard reports motor yacht YOGI sank.  She is a 62 meter Mediterranean yacht charter vessel.  When she sank, she was cruising off the coast of Greece.  No one was injured.  All crew rescued.

PROTEKSAN TURQUOISE

Built less than a year ago in Turkey by Proteksan Turquoise, motor yacht YOGI was reported to be in trouble Friday morning in the area between the islands of Skyros and Psara, 19 nautical miles off the coast.

 

WHAT CAUSED THE YACHT TO SINK?

A “mechanical failure”  is blamed for the incident.  It occurred in strong seas and Force 8 winds. There were no reports of injuries as all 8 French crewmembers were rescued by three Greek Coast Guard helicopters, supported by a frigate from the Hellenic Navy.  The crew was transferred to Skyros Health Center as a precautionary measure.

 

WARRANTY WORK

Motoryacht YOGI had just completed warranty work in Turkey, and was en route to her berth in the south of France. Capt. Jean Louis Carrel told Greek authorities that although the weather was rough, he believed the sinking was due to a mechanical failure with the exhaust system.

 

BUILDER SPEAKS

On Saturday, Mehmet Karabeyoglu, head of Proteksan Turquoise, the yacht’s builder, commented. 

“What I find surprising is that [from] the first mayday call to the boat sinking was nearly seven hours.  They had power as you can see lights on [in the photos and video shot by the Hellenic rescue team].”

 

Ask whether any warranty work was done on the engines or exhaust systems,  Karabeyoglu said, 

“She was just repainted, but we did no work in the engine room as it was perfect. No mechanical work other than routine service of the Cat engines. Perhaps they took bad fuel when they refueled in Istanbul.”

 

 

YACHT DETAILS

Proteksan Turquoise yacht YOGI was built in 2011 to ABS +A1, +AMS standards and was classed as Commercial Yachting Service (E). Her stunning profile and interior was designed by Jean Guy Verges, who has designed six other builds by the Turkish-based yard. This was the second of three superyacht vessels delivered by Proteksan in 2011.

 

OTHER YACHTS BY PROTEKSAN TURQUOISE

Other yachts offered for charter by this builder are motor yacht BARAKA and motoryacht SEQUEL P.

Superyachts: New Gadget Cuts Luxury Yacht Charter Vessel Interior Noise Levels

Posted on

Photograph of a man in a green shirt with his finger to his lip, indicating for you to be quiet.  It says Shh! in black bold font on the left side of his head.

Nothing like the peace and quiet of a yacht charter vacation

 

SUPERYACHT NOISE CANCELLATION

Noise-canceling headphones have been around for years. One company hopes to convert entire rooms on superyacht vessels into quieter environments.

 

VIDEOWORKS

Presenting the Active Noise Canceling system by Videoworks. It relies on stand alone speakers. These are built into the walls of a yacht.

 

HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?

The system will work by detecting the frequency of noises coming from a cabin. It then emits a similar noise from the opposite side of the spectrum of frequency.  As a result, there is a clashing of the opposing sounds. This results in the cancellation of the audible portion of the sound wave.

 

HISS…

While in most cases the noise is not completely eliminated, it does drop it to a significantly lower level, often sounding like a faint hiss.

 

TECHNOLOGY

The technology seems to work best when the noise is consistent and at a constant frequency – like the drone of the engines on a yacht charter vessel as it chugs from St Barts to St Thomas. 

 

 

INTERIOR

The noise-canceling gadget relies on woofer speakers that measure 22.8 x 11.8 x 4 inches and can be hidden under leather or other soft materials.  For instance, padded walls, pillows, and cushions.  They operate in the frequency range of 25 to 200 Hz and will detect any changes in frequency caused by the yacht’s engines or generators.  Concert-level audio quality is assured via an advanced 32-bit analog/digital signal processor and a dedicated digital power amplifier.

 

RENT A YACHT

In conclusion, take advantage of deep discounts on Spring Break charters in the Caribbean. Contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters destination experts at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/for more information.
