Superyacht Koi has sunk in Greek waters after it experienced a fire early in the morning of September 9th. Although information around the sinking is scarce, some initial details have been revealed by local media.
According to reports from a Greek coast guard, the 35-metre Koi requested assistance in the early hours of Saturday morning due to a fire on board. At the time of the emergency, Koi was located on Greek waters between Kefalonia and Zakynthos islands on the Ionian Sea.
The seven occupants of the vessel were rescued using liferafts and boats by the crew of the fishing vessel Afroditi, according to local reports, and are safe and well. The local media also reported that the occupants of the yacht at the time were four men and three women, who were later transferred to the nearby Agios Nikolaos port, northern Zakynthos.
Currently, no leaks have been reported and the area is being monitored for possible pollution. More information will be updated on this incident as it becomes available.
