The McCloy Group, the holding company that owns Seafaris, has issued a statement confirming that the fire started in the vessel’s engine room. A salvage operation will begin in the coming days.
The vessel, which was designed by Incat Crowther and launched in 2006, had only undergone one minor refit, when she received interior work in the same year, courtesy of FMCA, Brisbane.
