Ship happens! And in this case I am sure the owner was very disappointed. After over a year of excitement and work involved in designing, building, and delivering imagine arriving with your friends to watch your new Sunseeker yacht be delivered and seeing the crane tip…tip…tip and your yacht crashes to the ground with the crane landing on top. The pictured Sunseeker Predator never even got to stretch her legs in open water. This incident happened at Port Hueneme which is located at the US Navy base of the same name, about 50 miles north of Los Angeles. The yachts captain recalls the event: “It was so visually overwhelming as close as I was that I never remember hearing a sound, but talk around there right after said that atop the ship they heard three or four loud popping noises from down below. Who knows? Just glad no one got killed.”
Along with the joys of yachting comes the simple truth that things will happen to it. And although there are major disasters some times, many times there will be small little things that you will have to repair. That’s where the Sunseeker service department at Atlantic Yacht and Ship comes in! Regular repairs are inevitable but don’t let them be from lack of maintenance! Taking care of your Sunseeker will help prevent many of those small things from happening and will help keep resale value as high as possible. Gel coat maintenance is an important step to protecting your yacht from the elements.
