Yacht plunges vertically into the waters

Yacht plunging into the watersThe above-depicted yacht mishap occurred on 7 March 2007 at Port Jebel Ali (a man-made harbor in the Gulf of Arabia outside Dubat, UAE). When the pictured $1.5 million Carver 55’ Marquis Motor Yacht was being lifted aboard a cargo ship by slings for transport to the U.S., it slipped out of the forward sling, plunged bow-first into the water, and capsized, with the friction from the rear sling tearing off the yacht’s propellers, shafts, struts, and drive train.
