GoPro: Hellenic Coast Guard Rescues Crew from Sinking Superyacht

Check out this GoPro video shot by the Hellenic Coast Guard during a 2012 rescue of 8 crew members from the sinking superyacht Yogi.

We actually covered this incident way back when. The yacht ended up sinking off the coast off the Greek island of Skyros in the Aegean Sea.

The 60-meter yacht, previously available for charter at about $500,000 per week, was reportedly in the area for what was described as “minor warranty work” when it suffered a mechanical failure and began to list. Luckily, the Coast Guard was able to pluck everyone off despite of the conditions.
