Earlier today off the Caribbean island of Virgin Gorda, the 30-metre Hargrave superyacht Limitless (exda Bubba) caught fire at sea. Although the source of the fire is unknown at this time, it has been confirmed by locals that all guests and crew made it off the yacht unharmed, fortunately.

It seems that quick reactions from captain and crew is what saved the day. One crew member in the area reported: "The captain had everyone on their centre console [tender] in just a couple minutes of first smoke"
