I hope it was insured. The owner must have upset someone in Khao Tao.

Click on the link of Phuket News. It WAS NOT insured.

I am a friend of the owner & have knowledge of the details.

He is not the 'Former owner' & it has NOT been sold as said in the article

It is as described, 80 feet long & NO he has NOT upset anyone in Khao Tao OR for that matter anyone else

He is very stressed at why someone might do this & unhappy the way this story has been told, with factual mistakes

What you see is only the flying bridge, so looking at that in the water the vessel could easily be 73 foot plus....:jap:

sundeck, not flybridge.

Jealous competition?

Scuttled is more like it. Some plug must have been pulled. This is going to be

quite a bit of work and a lot of balloons to refloat a boat this size.

Shouldn't be too hard, it's in shallow protected water in Chalong Bay.

 

They resurrected it the last time it sunk nearby.

If this boat is more than 24 metres long, my shoe size must be in the hundreds.

Sometimes, quoting about something you know zero about can make you out to be a big fool on the internet. ? 

Have you seen the actual photo of the boat?

Sorry to hear, but why not insured?
