Million dollar yacht falls into water

The new boat slipped out of its sling while being lowered into the water. Look at the top right and see the tiny figure of a guy hanging on as it nosedives into the ocean

The brand-new 55-foot Carver Marquis- baseline price $1.2 million, and closer to $2 million out the door - was being off-loaded for delivery to its new owner in Dubai's Port Jbel Ali on March 7, Nocenti said.

An insurance representative was on hand snapping pictures and two Carver representatives were aboard, ready to ferry the boat to its owner as soon as it hit the water.

The boat nosedived, It hit bottom, crushing the front end, and then capsized and sank.
he said.

The men aboard had no choice but to ride it out, a fearful few seconds that were also captured on camera. In one of the pictures, a man can be seen clinging to the rear of the boat as it nose dives and the arm of the second man is visible forward of him.

Carver did not identify the two crewmen, but Nocenti said that one broke his collar bone and the other was uninjured. One of the photos shows both men swimming away from the accident, and Nocenti said the injured representative was treated and has since returned to work.

Wow, these are old posts, some of these date back five years ago. In any case I hope the dude was insured.
