200 Foot Super-Yacht Sinks After Less than a Year in Service

There are bad days, and then there are really, really, really bad days!

The Proteksan-Turquoise designed and built super-yacht, YOGI, sank Friday morning off the coast Skyros, a small Greek island located in Aegean Sea. (Click here for video)

The 197.5 foot super-yacht, which has only been up for charter since the summer of 2011, was reportedly in the area for “minor warranty” work when it suffered a mechanical failure, began to list, and eventually sank.  Luckily the Hellenic Coast Guard was on scene with a Super Puma helicopter and was able to get everyone off safely.YOGI featured accommodation for 12 guests in 6 cabins (5 double, 1 twin), and a large main deck master suite with lounge/day area, office area, dressing room and his and hers en suite bathrooms.  Amongst her many features were a large jacuzzi on the sun deck, a temperature regulated swimming pool with a skylight to the beach club below on the aft deck, two beach clubs, a massage room, a multimedia play lounge and a sun deck Teppanyaki bar.

The superyacht was available for charter through the superyacht charter company Burgess with rates of $469,000 to$497,000 per week.
