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.
