The sailing yacht “Malizia” by Perini crashes off Stromboli: it once belonged to Prince Ranieri of Monaco
The glorious sailing yacht Malizia by Perini has crashed against the rocks off Stromboli. This was an attempt at beaching the vessel after an equipment malfunction. There are no injuries reported
The beautiful sailing yacht, “Malizia” by Perini, formerly belonging to Prince Ranieri of Monaco, has crashed off of Stromboli. This splendid sailing yacht, 25 metres long, was hired in Trapani for a cruise around the Aeolian Islands. On board were 5 passengers and 3 crew members.
According to preliminary investigations, while the boat was off the coast of Stromboli, the piloting, or other, equipment malfunctioned, compromising navigation. The captain attempted to beach the vessel, taking advantage of the favourable water conditions, in order to avoid losing her. The vessel then crashed against the rocks to the south of the Scari marina.
Luckily, everyone on board was unharmed. The crew evacuated the 5 tourists with a life boat, taking them to the port of Scari, while the captain and the other crew member remained on board. The charter company, has already arranged to recover the yacht, hoping the damage is minimal. Rescue was coordinated by Circomare della Guardia Costiera in Lipari.
This 25 metre sailing yacht, built in 1989 by Perini Navi, was originally built for Prince Ranieri III of Monaco, who named it Malizia, following the family tradition. For many years, the boat was docked in Cap d’Ail, where it was used as his personal flagship.
