Last week, the 75.13-metre sailing yacht Enigma (ex: Phocea) caught fire near Langkawi, Malaysia. After seven crew members were rescued from the yacht, local authorities continued to fight the flames in strong winds. However, the damage incurred by the fire led to the yacht sinking nearly 24 hours later. 

"We believe she sank on Friday around five or six in the morning," said Mohamad Zawawi Abdullah, a senior coast guard official. "We were able to bring the fire under control but the fire caused damage to the hull which possibly caused the yacht to sink," he added. The cause of the fire remains unknown.
