The moment a $ 90 million GO megayacht crashed into the Sint Maarten pier

A megayacht worth more than $ 90 million crashed into the dock of the Sint Maarten Yacht Club, in the Caribbean.

The ship is the Turquoise Yachts GO, 251 feet in 2018, owned by Hans Peter Wild, whose value is estimated at about $ 90.5 million.

The incident occurred as she was leaving Simpson Bay Lagoon from her mooring at Ile de Sol Marina. The boat crashed on the dock of the Sint Maarten Yacht Club twice. The second was the most serious collision with Go hitting the wooden pier and then breaking the concrete.

According to the Sint Maarten Yacht Club, the impact has caused significant damage and at the moment, the pier remains closed until further notice.

The incident was due to a computer malfunction. The Go was being operated by a learner driver, and when Go retires, she can see that she also suffered some damage.

Go is powered by 2 Caterpillar 2,575 hp diesel engines and has a top speed of 18 knots, with a range of 5,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. It has a spa, steam room and gym, swimming pool and jacuzzi, heliport and garage for tendering, cinema and beach club. Your accommodation is for 16 guests and 19 crew members.
