“I sailed ‘Elysion’, a Belgian registered yacht, from Phuket (Thailand) to Langkawi, Malaysia but had to abandon the vessel about 40 nautical miles west from Koh Lipe on 1/1/2018 due to several failures (broken boom, engine failure, broken backstay, etc). I was safely rescued by a passing cargo ship.”

Yesterday’s Facebook alert…

Appears that ‘Elysion Phuket’ has made its way across the Andaman Sea and found a new resting place on an Aceh beach in Indonesia. Do you know the owner?

“Anyone missing a yacht.? Because in my area (weh island, sabang, aceh, indonesia) found a yacht without peoples aground off the beach.

The name of yacht “ELYSION PHUKET” , with a small Thailand country flag hanging on the mast. Here I send a detailed photo of his yacht.

Please help us.!
