Superyacht Kanga hull after fire damage in PrapratnoPhoto: SYT ReaderA fire broke out on board the recently-delivered 40-metre superyacht Kanga earlier this morning where she was anchored some 15 nautical miles north of Dubrovnik near the island of Olipa in Croatia. All thirteen people on board were safely evacuated from the yacht according to local reports, and no serious injuries have been reported thus far. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.As the yacht continues to burn as her current location, authorities and firefighting personnel are trying to limit any further damage, but as can be seen in this eyewitness video, Kanga’s entire superstructure has already fell victim to the flames and much of her interior with it. Authorities’ priority now is to limit any environmental damage that may occur as a result of the damage.
