The Kapky has been involved in an accident. A Navetta 26 by Custom Line, the vessel began taking on water off the coast of Turkey, near Doganbey, in the evening of Thursday 28 June.

The yacht began sinking. According to local sources the cause could have been impact against one of the many submerged reefs in that area of the Turkish coast. On board were ten people who immediately raised the alarm.

The Turkish Coast Guard came to help and rescued all passengers, who were uninjured, bringing them in the port of Sigacik, where they were transferred to medical staff.

After the accident, the megayacht was towed to a nearby port, where it arrived half-sunk. It was then emptied of water. In the meantime, Turkish authorities are working to identify what caused the accident. Collision with a reef seems to be the leading theory.

The m/y Kapky has an overall length of 26.22 metres and a beam of 6.29 metres. It can hold up to 12 passengers, and four crew members. Its maximum speed is 14 knots. This Navetta 26 Custom Line was delivered to its owner in 2009 and was named Kapky after another three name changes.
