‘Lady D’ super yacht set adrift after firefighters fail to reach the burning yacht in Phuket

Local Marine officials in Phuket were notified at 8.30am this morning of a fire aboard a luxury yacht parked at the Ao Po Grand Marina.

Responding to calls from Ao Po Grand Marina staff, firefighters discovered the ‘Lady D’ was out of reach, as it had parked 500 metres beyond the furthest extremity of the port. Officers had to order the yacht crew to cut its ropes in order to prevent the fire from traveling down the rope and spreading to nearby ships, according to The Nation.

In earlier reports it was said that the fire was brought under control.

Punya Sompoarat, President of the Paklok OrBorTor, says that the fire involved a super yacht moored at the Ao Po Grand Marina on the north east coast of the island.
