$1 million, 80-foot luxury Sunseeker Atlantis yacht sinks off Florida coast. Photos, what we know

occ yachting facebook

Two people were rescued off the Florida coast Saturday when an 80-foot luxury sports yacht began sinking according to a release from the U.S. Coast Guard in Jacksonville.

Unlike other recent incidents in other parts of the world, no orcas were involved in this yacht going down. The operator reported that the boat hit something in the water.

At 11:37 a.m. the operator of the yacht radioed that they were taking on water three miles off the coast of St. Augustine Beach. Multiple agencies responded, the Coast Guard said.

When marine units from St. Johns Sheriff's Office and St. Augustine Police Department arrived, the boat was already partially submerged. Two people were safely removed.

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our partner agencies for their invaluable assistance during this case," said U.S. Coast Guard Senior Chief Petty Officer Ricardo Santacana. “With the weather improving and mariners heading out onto the water, it's imperative for everyone to verify the presence of all necessary safety equipment aboard their vessel. This ensures that responders, as demonstrated in this case, can swiftly locate you and render assistance when an emergency arises.” 

Here's what we know.

Why did the Sunseeker Atlantis yacht sink off the coast of Florida?

According to the operator of the boat, it struck something.

St. Johns County Fire Rescue reported it was a dredge pipe piling and a photo of the piling shows a bent sign.

Was anyone hurt when the Sunseeker Atlantis yacht sank?

One person suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, St. Johns County Fire Rescue said in a Facebook post .

What kind of yacht sank off the St. Augustine Beach coast?

The boat appears to be a Sunseeker Atlantis , built in the United Kingdom and delivered in 1999, according to Boat International.

The motor yacht is one of 21 Predator 80 models. It has two Caterpillar diesel engines, a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots, with room for up to six guests in three staterooms, plus two crewmembers.

The yacht was designed by naval architect Don Shead, with interiors from designer Ken Freivokh, Boat International said. Similar Sunseeker Predator 80 yachts have been listed for around $1 million.

What will happen to the Sunseeker yacht Atlantis?

A hazard has been issued to alert others of the partially submerged vessel.

The owner of the boat will arrange salvage and the cause of the incident is under investigation, the Coast Guard said.

Travis scott blows off cannes brawl, has boat adventure with stormi & aire, travis scott no worries after cannes brawl ... jet skis & qt with kids.

Travis Scott isn't letting the Cannes brawl ruin his quality time with his children Stormi and Aire ... as they enjoyed some fun in the sun while in the South of France.

The rapper -- dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, shorts and blue swim shoes -- hit the water Tuesday with the kids he has with his ex, Kylie Jenner ... basking in the sun while on a yacht off the coast of Saint-Tropez.

Stormi stayed on the boat with her younger bro while dad rode a jet ski around the crystal clear French Riviera water. If the photos are any indication, Travis was having the time of his life.

Travis also appeared unbothered on board the boat, as he spent time with his entourage -- which included security guards and 2 unidentified women.

This outing comes on the heels of Travis getting into a melee in Cannes.

As TMZ previously reported, Trav and Tyga's respective camps got into a knock-down, dra g-out late last week ... with the "Sicko Mode" artist exchanging blows with T-Raww's bestie (and Cher 's boyfriend), Alexander "AE" Edwards at one point.

It's been business as usual since the dramatics, however.

Travis performed at Lilly’s Club at the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco early Monday morning ... with several notable names cheering him on, including Winnie Harlow , Odell Beckham Jr. and Jason Oppenheim , among others.

In other words, Travis is putting the whole fight in his rearview. At least for now.

Travis Scott Says Grammys Matter To Him, Frustrated He Hasn't Won Yet

Judge sides with Florida man who complained neighbor’s yacht was too big for lot

  • Susannah Bryan South Florida Sun Sentinel (TNS)

FORT LAUDERDALE — Say your neighbor has a yacht so big that it dwarfs the dock behind his home. Do you call the city to complain?

Michael Meldeau did. It wound up getting him sued by one Steven Howell, owner of the yacht.

The two men live on Delmar Place in Fort Lauderdale’s upscale Las Olas Isles , just north of Las Olas and west of the Intracoastal.

The yearslong feud isn’t your run-of-the-mill neighborhood dispute . The lawsuit, filed four years ago, touched on not only property rights but also, in the case of the defendant, the right to free speech.

Reed Tolber, Meldeau’s attorney, attempted to get the lawsuit thrown out, accusing Howell of trying to muzzle Meldeau from complaining to Fort Lauderdale code officers if he notices anything amiss on Howell’s property.

The case was heading to trial in June, but all that changed Thursday when Broward Circuit Judge Martin Bidwell signed an order granting summary judgment in favor of Meldeau, saying there was no need for a trial.

“The record evidence firmly establishes that (Howell) knowingly and routinely moored his yachts behind his home in violation of the city’s code,” Bidwell wrote in his order. “Although it must be vexing to have (a neighbor) constantly report one’s code violations to the city, these actions by (his neighbor) cannot be said to be unreasonable.”

It remains unclear whether Howell and his legal team plan to appeal.

Howell, 64, declined to comment. His attorneys, Brent Gordon and Brian Gottlieb, could not be reached for comment.

Howell’s lawsuit had accused Meldeau, 77, of embarking on a campaign of harassment and urged the court to require him to employ an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida to report any future potential code violations on Howell’s property.

To keep the peace, Howell was forced to rent out dock space and pay dockage fees, his lawsuit says. Those dockage fees, according to the lawsuit, are special damages that Howell would not have to pay if the boat were docked behind his home.

A matter of size

Meldeau bought his three-bedroom home on Delmar Place in 2000 for $825,000, according to the Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office. Howell moved into the neighborhood a decade later, paying nearly $2.7 million for a four-bedroom home two houses away, appraiser records show.

The trouble began when Howell started docking his yacht on the 100-foot lot behind his waterfront home in late 2018, both parties say. The boat, named #OMG, was sometimes docked behind the homes of neighbors with their permission, according to the lawsuit.

Most waterfront homes in Fort Lauderdale have a 10-foot setback on either side for boat dockage. So a property that’s 100 feet wide like Howell’s would be prohibited from docking a boat bigger than 80 feet in length.

Meldeau and his attorney say the #OMG is just shy of 105 feet in length — 25 feet too long for Howell’s property.

A former attorney of Howell’s told a city board the yacht is 96 feet long. And Howell testified during a deposition that he’s not quite sure how long the boat is, records show.

Meldeau took exception to the yacht extending into his property line when it was docked behind the home of a different neighbor whose home sits in between his home and Howell’s, according to court records.

He called the city to report the yacht for violating the setback code in late 2018.

The city’s inspectors found the yacht to be in violation and ordered Howell to remove it, Meldeau’s attorney wrote in his motion to dismiss the case. When they returned to verify compliance, the yacht was gone and the complaint was closed.

But once the case was closed, the yacht was back at the dock, according to Meldeau’s motion to dismiss the case.

“This ‘dance’ occurred several times,” Tolber wrote.

Meldeau complained again and again. But when the city’s inspectors would show up, the yacht would be gone, Tolber wrote.

Then one day, a code inspector spotted the yacht docked behind the house in between Howell’s and Meldeau’s and found it to be in violation of the city’s setback code.

“It’s time to stop it”

A hearing was scheduled before a magistrate, who agreed the yacht was too big for the lot.

Howell took his case to the city’s Board of Adjustment in January 2020 to request a variance that would allow him to keep the yacht behind his home.

The board denied his request, citing its failure to meet the code’s hardship requirement.

Before the board’s vote, Meldeau spoke up against the variance. He told the board that Howell “started bragging” that it was saving him $8,000 a month in dockage fees to keep his yacht docked behind his home.

“So this is not a hardship,” Meldeau told the board. “This is an economic benefit. And I say we’re not for sale. It’s time to stop it. If you can’t bring a boat in your neighborhood that doesn’t meet the code, don’t bring it in.”

In February 2020, the following month, Howell filed suit against Meldeau.

During a deposition last year, Meldeau’s attorney asked Howell to explain the timing of his lawsuit.

“I don’t know the exact dates of how all this timed out,” Howell said. “But the truth of the matter was that there were all sorts of challenges all around this at different times. We had to manage different risk levels while all this stuff was going on. And that’s why I escalated this to where we are now because I just decided I wasn’t going to live like this any longer. We did everything we could to try to mitigate this and not end up where we are right now.”

In March 2020, the magistrate fined Howell $14,000.

The fine remained unpaid as of Tuesday, city officials said. During last year’s deposition, Howell said he hadn’t paid the fine because it was “not correct” and he didn’t consider the matter resolved. The yacht was moved from his home in late 2021 and was docked at the RMK Marina, Howell testified.

Howell told Meldeau’s attorney he doesn’t remember details about the boat being moved around after Meldeau started making calls to code officers.

“I don’t recall its movement, but boats come and go,” Howell said. “That’s what they do.”

When asked to confirm that the #OMG yacht is 105 feet long, Howell said he was under the impression the boat was 105 feet when he bought it. But during last year’s deposition, he testified that he was no longer sure.

“When we bought the boat, we thought that it was 105 feet,” Howell said during the deposition. “We’ve since learned, since all this started with Mr. Meldeau, that it’s a Model 105, not 105 feet. And I have multiple documents that confused us all about the exact size, including certifications from the manufacturer. We never measured our boat. We tried and we can’t figure it out.”

The lawsuit, which was amended in 2022, accused Meldeau of making repeated complaints to code enforcement about Howell’s property.

Twice in 2019, Meldeau called the city to report that sewage from the yacht was possibly being dumped into the canal, according to the lawsuit. The city came out to investigate but found no evidence to support the claim, the lawsuit says.

“Plainly, Meldeau is obsessed with Howell,” the lawsuit said, “and he shows no signs of stopping with his continued social media posts (though he subsequent to this lawsuit removed or made such posts private), his unsupported accusations to the president of the local homeowners association, and complaints to the marine patrol just prior to the Covid-19 pandemic on or about as of February 9, 2020.”

“I don’t want him to do that”

According to the lawsuit, Meldeau “spread lies” on Facebook that Howell was dumping sewage in the canal and renting out dock space to other boat owners. The lawsuit references this comment posted on Meldeau’s Facebook account: “Las Olas Isles will turn into a Commercial Marina full of supersized yachts looking to rent docks on the ‘Cheap.’ And so goes the Venice of America.”

In his order, the judge makes mention of a Facebook post where a relative of Meldeau’s commented, jokingly suggesting he shoot holes in the yacht. “I am ready,” Meldeau replied under the comment.

“The record further establishes that Defendant at one time made a Facebook post suggesting that he would shoot holes into the OMG,” the judge wrote. “However, the record does not show that (Meldeau) has ever pointed the gun at someone, made threats towards anyone, or otherwise caused (Howell) to suffer irreparable damage.

The lawsuit alleged that Meldeau set out two chairs on his dock turned east toward the Howell property, then sitting in one and leaning a rifle against the other. In a motion for summary judgment, Meldeau’s attorney says the “rifle” Meldeau was holding was actually a pellet gun his client used to kill iguanas on his sea wall.

The matter came up during Howell’s deposition last year.

“I think sitting with a rifle and looking down at my house is, especially in today’s culture, no, I don’t think that’s acceptable and I don’t want him to do that,” Howell told Meldeau’s attorney. “I wouldn’t sit with chairs and a rifle facing his house.”

But in his findings, the judge noted that Meldeau maintains the device was an air-powered pellet gun used to kill iguanas.

“Regardless, (Howell) last witnessed (his neighbor) on his dock with the device about three years ago,” the judge wrote.

Toward the end of last year’s deposition, Tolber asked Howell whether he had any plans to bring the yacht back and dock it behind his house.

“It’s undetermined right now,” Howell said.

Tolber asked again, rephrasing the question.

“It will not go back behind my house,” Howell replied, “but it’s possible that it could come back here to a neighbor’s.”

Vicem Tuna Masters 37 Express

Vicem Yachts has already won over traditional yachtsmen with its elegant, cold-molded mahogany cruisers . Now it’s hoping to reel in anglers, too.

Created in partnership with Turkish designer Murat Iyriboz and U.S. outfit DLBA, the Tuna Masters can be used for serious angling and casual family outings. The two models showcase molded fiberglass exteriors, the same sleek hull, and an impressive beam of just over 12 feet. Both also deliver “exciting performance,” according to Vicem.

Vicem Tuna Masters 37 Express

The interior is the main difference between the two: The 37 CC showcases a walkaround center console, whereas the 37 Express has more of a cruiser-style cockpit with a wraparound windscreen under the hardtop. The Express is also outfitted with a full lower cabin.

The helm is positioned front and center of the enclosed cockpit, with wraparound guest seating nestled behind. To the aft lies a triple-seater bench, two fighting chairs, a built-in bait well, and multiple pole holders. The live bait tank has an impressive capacity of 45 gallons, too.

The lower deck features a galley, a head, a rod locker, and a cabin that can be tailored to the owner. (You can opt for twin berths in a V formation or a full double V-berth if you want more space.) The fit and finish are quintessentially Vicem, with teak decking and detailed joinery throughout.

“The lower accommodation area is both versatile and exceptionally comfortable, notably featuring an impressive two-meter headroom without compromising the yacht’s sleek profile,” the team adds. “The 37 Express perfectly complements the CC version and underscores our commitment to enthusiasts who prioritize both fishing and cruising.”

The first Vicem Tuna Masters 37 Express is currently in Puerto Rico.
