According to local reports in Mexico, the crew of the 90 meter Lürssen motor yacht, ICE, assisted in a rescue operation off the coast of Cozumel in mid-February.Apparently a local dive boat was enroute with divers on board to a dive site in Playa Del Carmen known for attracting bull sharks. After taking on water in rough seas, the vessel sank, leaving all hands in the water, adrift for approximately 4 hours.
Superyacht ICE picked up the dive boat’s distress signal, calculated to where the divers would have drifted, and located all 8 divers and the boat’s operator alive in the water.
Built by Lürssen in Germany in 2005, the 90 meter motor yacht ICE (launched as motor yacht AIR) offers accommodations for 14 guests, and features a crew compliment of 27. While not currently available for hire, many other yachts by the fabled German builder are in service as Lürssen yacht charter vessels, including 2009, 60 meter motor yachtARKLEYand 2010, 60 meter motor yachtSOLEMATES.
