FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Two super yachts worth a combined total of $20 million lit up the sky over Fort Lauderdale early Saturday morning as the pricey vessels burst into flames, according to Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.
Fire officials said one of the super yachts was a 161-foot Trinity yacht called Low & Grin valued at $12 million. The other was a 107-foot Christensen yacht called Reflections worth $8 million.
The vessels were next to one another at Universal Marine in the 2500 block of State Road 84 just off the New River.
“Over the next five hours more than 60 firefighters and three fire boats would battle this blaze, preventing it from spreading to other yachts in the marina,” fire officials reported. “Thankfully no one was injured during this intense fire.”
Fire officials said the cause of the blaze was under investigation.
“It is believed to have started on the 160-foot yacht and then spread to the neighboring 100-foot yacht,” fire officials said. “The estimated loss value of these two boats is in excess of $20 million.”
