A multimillion-dollar motor cruiser once owned by the family behind the Wild Oats XI yacht has been destroyed in a massive fire in Sydney’s north.

Emergency services were called to Woolwich Dock about 8.10pm on Saturday following reports of a boat fire.

NCA NewsWire understand the boat, Andiamo - which is estimated to be worth between $5 and $10 million - was once owned by Sandy Oatley, the son of the late Australian yachtsman and businessman, Bob Oatley.

The family is best known for owning the nine-time Sydney-Hobart-winning yacht Wild Oats XI.

Upon arrival, the boat was found to be fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters worked for some time to extinguish the massive fire, a difficult task given the extent of the fuel load.

Fire and Rescue NSW Superintendent Adam Dewberry said the boat was filled with 4000 litres of diesel when the fire broke out.

“It took so long [to extinguish the fire] because it’s a large vessel, and we had no access onto the yacht itself, it just wasn’t safe to get on board,” he said.

Police have confirmed the fire is not being treated as suspicious.

There are no reports of any injuries.

A motor cruiser has been destroyed at Woolwich Dock.

The Oatley family have been spending time on Hamilton Island for the tourist hot spot’s annual race week, hosted from August 19 to 26.

They are celebrating 20 years of owning the iconic island destination, after the Oatley patriarch purchased the island in 2003 for $200 million.

It is understood two other famous boats usually docked at the Woolwich Dock - where the Oatley’s own the lease - Wild Oats XI and Andoo Comanche, were both docked on Hamilton Island at the time of the fire.

dock on Saturday night but was not damaged by the fire.

Officers attached to the Marine Area Command have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire.

Anyone with information into the incident is urged to call police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Confidential evidence is expected to be tendered during the trial of a cop accused of causing the death of a 95-year-old woman, a court has been told.

Police have called for public assistance to track down the man who robbed a tobacconist store at knifepoint.

The family of a woman allegedly murdered by her former partner have broken down in court, as the case against him moves forward.

Sad, and happy, ending to Sydney superyacht blaze

The andiamo may be lost, but insurance cover will at least see it replaced.

The owners of a 28-metre superyacht that caught fire and sank at its mooring in Sydney’s historic Woolwich Dock in September were paid the full insured value less than five weeks after losing it.

Nautilus Marine Insurance revealed today it had managed the loss of the Andiamo after it caught fire around 8pm on September 2 while moored at the dock with no one aboard. The motor yacht eventually sank as firefighters flooded it with water in an attempt to extinguish the blaze.

Media reports said the motor yacht had recently put on 4000 litres of fuel.

An insurance assessor was on the site a day after to ensure the environmental impact of the fire was contained and minimised.

Nautilus Marine Insurance loss adjustor and marine surveyor Micheal Lieberman said the insurer had a clear list of responsibilities after a boat fire. 

“Whilst all salvages are different, the priorities remain clear,” Lieberman said.

“Once the actual incident is under control by emergency services, we need to contain the site to lessen any environmental impact. 

“By mid-morning Sunday [the day after the fire] we had a salvage operator, divers, and a team deploying containment mats and scoops.”

Recovering the burnt-out remains of the boat was difficult, with the hull wedged sideways across the dock. The Andiamo was finally lifted from the water on September 16 after a “complex” salvage operation – the remains were floated to the surface using air bags placed by specialist divers.

It was then guided to the Woolwich Dock travel lift where it was raised and underwent forensic inspection as part of the insurance claim process.

Nautilus Marine Insurance has covered the entire cost of the salvage operation.

However, it’s not quite over yet. Now that the claim has been settled, what remains of the Andiamo will be broken up and disposed of.

Nautilus Marine Insurance chief executive Lyndon Turner was on the site of the fire on the first day and said he sympathised with boat owners in situations like this. 

“To see your pride and joy suffering such a fate is an emotional time, which is why it’s so important that boat owners receive support, reassurance, and professionalism through the claims process,” Turner said.

“Being there for our customers when it really counts is what Nautilus Marine Insurance is here for.” Boatsales has this handy guide to what you need to do in the event of your boat catching fire.

Sydney Boat Fire

28m yacht Andiamo destroyed by blaze in Sydney

Written by Dea Jusufi – BOAT International

The remains of a yacht destroyed by a fire have now largely sunk at the historic Woolwich Dock in Sydney Harbour. Believed to be the 28.4-metre Andiamo built by Azzura, the incident happened on 3 September. 

Firefighters arrived on the scene to find Andiamo fully engulfed in flames after they responded to an emergency call at around 20.03pm local time on 2 September.

Fire and Rescue New South Wales (FRNSW) superintendent Adam Dewberry explained that upon arrival the fire was threatening to spread to adjoining vessels until an onsite employee had them moved to safety with no damage.

Fire crews managed to contain the blaze by 6am but the yacht itself was destroyed and later sunk into the harbour. The FRNSW remained on site in case of reignition and to manage any potential pollution. Dewberry said that “over a 14-hour period we had 18 fire trucks and 72 firefighters rotate through the operation”.

The blackened remains of Andiamo were still visible above the surface of the water on Sunday morning when the FRNSW handed the site back to the dock manager. The containment booms that had been placed at the entry to the dry dock are now being used as a mooring to contain any oils and other pollutants.

While tackling the blaze, firefighters filled the vessel with water, which is in part why she sunk. It also understood that she had recently been refuelled, which made the fire more difficult to contain.

Speaking to BOAT International, Dewberry said: “The owner or custodian of the vessel will engage a contractor to salvage the yacht and make good any pollution issues. This will be monitored by our maritime authority.”

No injuries have been reported and the cause of the incident remains unknown. Once the yacht has been refloated and lifted out of the water, the fire will be investigated by the local police with assistance from a FRNSW fire expert.

Cause Sought in Sydney Yacht Fire

Sydney police are investigating a fire that destroyed a yacht reportedly owned by a prominent Australian resort and maxi racing family.

Firefighters arrived Saturday night to Sydney’s Woolwich Dock to find M/Y Andiamo engulfed in flames. Nearby boats were threatened as firefighters got to work.

According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald , the yacht is owned by Sandy Oatley, son of the late Bob Oatley, who owned popular Great Barrier Reef destination Hamilton Island. According to the newspaper, the Oatley family also owns Wild Oats XI, the nine-time line honors winner of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

Fire and Rescue New South Wales Superintendent Adam Dewberry said that crews were able to contain the fire and damage to other vessels was prevented, but that the vessel was ruined and mostly sunk.

“Initial firefighting efforts were to not only extinguish the fire, but stop it spreading to a number of high-value vessels that were moored alongside the motor yacht. A young dockworker on-site at the time moved those other vessels away from the fire,” Dewberry said.

“It took so long [to extinguish the fire] because it’s a large vessel, and we had no access onto the yacht itself; it just wasn’t safe to get on board.

“The fuel loading of these vessels is quite high – fibrerglass, plastics, foams, polyurethanes, any number of things you would associate with any [vessel] of luxury that has accommodation facilities.” The vessel had been filled with 4,000 liters of fuel earlier that day.

Dewberry said that while investigations were continuing, the fire was not being treated as suspicious.

Unattended Burning Candles, Inoperable Fire-Detection System Caused $6.78M in Damage

​​In this Dec. 18, 2019, photo, the yacht Andiamo is seen ablaze and listing to starboard as fireboats attempt to extinguish the fire. Photo courtesy of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue​

​​WASHINGTON (Sept. 9, 2021) — Candles lit and left unattended in a yacht’s VIP suite caused a fire that resulted in the total loss of the $6.3M yacht and $480,000 in damage to a Miami marina and adjacent vessels, according to the National Transportation Safety Board’s Marine Accident Brief 21/17 ​, issued Thursday.

No injuries were reported in connection with the Dec. 18, 2019, fire aboard the 120-foot-long, 299-gross-ton, private yacht Andiamo. Firefighting efforts resulted in flooding that led to the yacht capsizing onto its starboard side and coming to rest on the marina’s sea floor in about 27-feet of water. An oil-absorbent boom was deployed to minimize the environmental impact from an oil sheen. Adjacent vessels sustained smoke and heat damage and the marina’s nearby power pedestal and dock floats required repair, but the fire did not spread beyond the Andiamo. 

​The Marshall Islands-flagged Andiamo was moored at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour Marina on pier B. The six crewmembers aboard the yacht were preparing for the arrival of a guest of the owner. During those preparations, two crewmembers reported lights throughout the lower level and the main salon were not working. The lighting issue was not resolved by the time the guest arrived, so a member of the crew lit three candles, placing them on top of a wood veneer dresser directly below a porthole decorated with two curtains. The crewmember extinguished one candle that was flickering, while the other two remained lit, and then departed the suite with the guest.

A few minutes later the crewmember opened the door to the main salon and saw a plume of black smoke about 4 feet high from the deck. Two crewmembers began yelling “Fire!” which the captain heard, and he proceeded to investigate, but he did not activate the general alarm. He instructed a crewmember to have everyone evacuate the yacht and to call for help. Despite the yacht being equipped with an integrated fire-detection and alarm system – consisting of smoke and thermal detectors and manual (pull-type) and audible alarms – the crew told investigators that they neither heard nor saw any fire alarms at that time. The intensity of the fire grew so quickly the crew could not safely initiate firefighting efforts and had to evacuate the vessel.

Investigation revealed the American Bureau of Shipping reported on Oct. 2 the fire-detection and alarm system for the vessel was inoperable. Visits from ABS indicated that despite the crew’s repair attempts, the system and alarms were still not functioning over two months later, at the time of the fire. If fully functional, the fire-detection and alarm system would have alerted the crew of the fire’s location at its onset, which would have allowed for a direct response and fire-suppression efforts. Investigators determined the crew’s failure to complete timely repairs to the fire-detection system, known to be inoperable for two months, contributed to the severity of the fire.

“Candle usage on a vessel, whether attended or not, poses a fire risk,” the report said. “The abundance of flammable materials on board can allow a fire to quickly spread out of control.”​

To report an incident/accident or if you are a public safety agency, please call 1-844-373-9922 or 202-314-6290 to speak to a Watch Officer at the NTSB Response Operations Center (ROC) in Washington, DC (24/7).

Marc Anthony

A luxury yacht belonging to Latin pop star Marc Anthony went up in flames in Miami on Wednesday night.

The “I Need to Know” singer’s 120-foot Benetti superyacht , Andiamo , was destroyed after it caught fire and capsized. A representative for Anthony confirmed to Robb Report that the boat belonged to the singer, but said that he was not on board at the time of the blaze and that no one was hurt.

Just after 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday night, Miami Fire Rescue, along with units from City of Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, were called to the Island Gardens Marina on the MacArthur Causeway, responding to reports of a fire. While no other boats were damaged, and no injuries reported, it took the crews two hours to get the blaze under control, according to the department.

In a series of photos posted to social media by City of Miami Fire Rescue , teams of firefighters can be seen on the dock and in a boat circling Andiamo trying to extinguish the blaze. Another post , from a reporter at the local Fox affiliate, shows the boat fully capsized in the marina’s waters.

Anthony has owned the yacht since 2006, according to Boat International . Valued at around $7.5 million dollars, the vessel had five deluxe cabins and room for 12 guests. It also featured a number of luxury amenities, including two dining areas, two separate bars, a barbecue, a jacuzzi, docking stations for multiple jet skis and other water toys, air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi and a washer/dryer.

The boat has long served a playground for Anthony. This summer the singer, who is the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time, and his family were spotted enjoying a weekend on the boat with David and Victoria Beckham and their children, according to The Blast . At the time, the website reported that the singer was trying to sell the yacht, though it would appear those efforts were unsuccessful.

Two superyachts lost to fire in Portsmouth, Rhode Island

Both yachts reported total losses with one person injured….

Image for article Two superyachts lost to fire in Portsmouth, Rhode Island

Two superyacht fires have been reported at Hinkley Yacht Services Marina on Friday, December 10. At its peak, 70 firefighters were reported to have been fighting the blaze. The 30m Ocean Alexander Drinkability and the 32m sailing vessel Danneskjold have subsequently been reported as total losses. Local media outlet WPRI released the following clips of the fires on youtube. 

It has also been reported that one man has been taken to hospital with burn injuries. Initial reports also indicate that the fire started on Drinkability before spreading to Danneskjold, while the causes of both fires remain unknown. 

At the time the fire began, it is understood that one vessel had extensive work taken place on the hull, with damage sustained to a nearby travel lift. Fire safety crews were battling the blaze for over 8 hours and continued to monitor the scene over the weekend. 

Danneskjold   was launched in 2009 by Southern Ocean Marine, with a GRP hull, displacement of 68 tons with 87GT.  The Ocean Alexander Drinkability  was launched in 2017, with an FRP hull, a displacement of 229 tons and 160GT. 

Superyachtnews will continue to track both accidents closely, and any subsequent investigations will be closely analysed and reported upon.
