Superyacht owner's 'flashing back-lit electric nameplate could have sparked inferno' which destroyed £6million vessel

An 85-foot superyacht, which is called the Rendezvous, caught fire just before midday in Torquay Marina. It was one of just 31 Princess Y85 superyachts in the world and sank after burning for around five hours. Sources say a flashing new nameplate may have been the cause behind huge inferno on Saturday afternoon.

Diesel clean-up after major superyacht fire in Torquay harbourWork continues to contain about nine tonnes of fuel that sank with the boat in a marina.

The insurance pay hahahaha a life of thievering and scamming... A nation in handas of religious liars and politicians thieves. 🤣😂😅😜 Hope it belonged to a Russian Oligarch!
