47m Navis One sinks after fire

The 2014 Gentech motoryacht caught fire off the coast of Greece on 9th October and is a total loss, with no injuries reported…

The 47m Navis One sank after a fire on 9th October near Ano Koufonisi island in Greece. Witnesses reported seeing flames at the yacht's stern around 8:00 PM local time. Police and coast guard arrived later that evening, with the fire rapidly spreading in strong winds. 

Efforts to control the fire by the Greek coast guard continued overnight, but the vessel began to list and finally sank during the early hours of October 10. Reportedly all 22 individuals aboard, including 10 passengers and 12 crew members, were safely evacuated with no reported injuries.

Navis One was a 2014 delivery from the Gentech shipyard.

Why no spill-containment booms or barriers? Contaminants spreading outwards are clear to be seen on the surface. This was close to the port and emergency services were on the scene for a long period before the eventual total sinking which clearly could not have been long after this video. Fearful calamity for the environment and local populations.
