Superyacht Captain, Luca Mosca announced on his social media over the weekend that Captain Petar Milkov, Chief Officer, Emily Grassby and the Crew of M/Y Victorious successfully rescued (after 16 hours of SAR operations) 5 castaways from a capsized sailing yacht in Mid Atlantic, whilst on their way to Caribbean.
All five passengers were on a 15-metre catamaran that capsized around 500 miles from shore where they then made the distress call. After receiving medical treatment on board Victorious, they were transferred to Saint Martin for further treatment.
“A life changing experience for all involved. Would not have been possible without our dedicated crew who commited themselves wholeheartedly to the situation.” – Commented Chief Officer, Emily Grassby
Victorious is an 85m (279ft) expedition motor yacht built by the Ak Yachts shipyard in Turkey. Her interiors are designed by H2 Yacht Design, while her exteriors are created by Michael Leach Design. She can accommodate up to 12 guests across 11 guest suites, making for an exceedingly comfortable experience onboard.
