The Naseem, a 27-metre motor yacht, has sunk following a fire, 5 miles off the coast of Santa Maria di Leuca, in Puglia. The crew was rescued by the Coast Guard.

The alarm sounded during the night between Thursday 12 and Friday 13 May. On the scene were the Lecce fire brigade, with a motorboat and specialist team sent in from Taranto, and a patrol vessel from the Port Authority which rescued the three-person crew. In spite of continued attempts to put out the fire until dawn, the fire caused the boat to sink.

The Coast Guard continued monitoring the water in the area surrounding the fire, with a CP886 patrol boat and Manta 10-01 airplane. The cause of the fire is still unknown, but an investigation by the Maritime Authority has begun, starting with questioning the three crew members, including the captain.

The Naseem was built in 2009, was 27.25 metres long, and was used as a charter. It is a Dominator 860 model, designed by Studio Nuvolari & Lenard, with customisation by T4 Design.

The owner’s suite had large windows overlooking the water and a full beam double bathroom, with a crystal and marble shower. The yacht also had another three cabins, for passengers: a double to the bow with separate toilet and bath and two twin cabins with two beds midship, all with private bathroom, and refined accessories and finishes.

According to the charter agency, the price for a week on board the m/y Naseem was between 45 and 52 thousand euros, plus expenses, depending on high or low season.
