Italian media have reported that the 36.6-metre yacht Evo 120 by Italian builder Tecnomar caught fire in the early hours of Sunday, June 16, resulting in the vessel’s complete destruction. The incident took place in Marina di Carrara, Italy, with no casualties reported.
According to media sources, the captain was on-board alone when the fire broke out. He managed to leave the vessel quickly. At around 01 a.m., firefighters, the police and the coast guard arrived to isolate the fire and prevent it from affecting other yachts.
Launched 4 weeks ago, the yacht was the second hull from the Tecnomar Evo 120 series, due for imminent delivery to an Asian customer. As it is evident on the images available on the internet, the yacht has partly sunk and has been heavily damaged.
The yacht was later towed away to a more remote section of the marina and isolated.
Meanwhile, the first hull from the series was launched in 2018, while the third one is currently under construction. Sadly, the news is not the first sad ones of its kind regarding the vessels of the yard, after the 34-metre yacht caught fire in Mykonos in 2017.
