After strong winds and big seas hit the Balearics over the weekend, footage has emerged on social media of a superyacht sinking in Port d’Andratx, Mallorca.

According to local reports, the yacht in question is believed to be 34m Custom Line Paradise, and the incident appears to be a result of a line breaking and hitting the yacht against the quay, causing significant damage to the hull. 

Located in the south-west of the island, Port d’Andratx is known in Mallorca for its exposure to the elements during winter. The direction of the gale over the weekend also caused difficult conditions in the nearby Port Adriano, where many other superyachts were berthed.

Built in 2003 by Ferretti Group's Custom Line division, Paradise was on the market for an asking price of 3.4 million euros.
