The Italian coast Guard quickly sprang into action and rescued all four passengers and five crew members. The vessel was heading from Gallipoli to Milazzo when it sank.
The vessel, My Saga, was sailing on Saturday evening when the coast guard responded to a call from the crew that the boat’s stern was filling up with water, as per a report by Bloomberg.
The coast guard responded quickly and dispatched a ship to the yacht and successfully rescued all onboard.
The 129-foot super yacht sank on Saturday (August 20) in the Gulf of Squillace, about nine nautical miles off the coast of Catanzaro, Italy.
