Under the owners instructions, the 73 metre superyacht Dragonfly has been deployed to the island nation of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean to assist with major disaster relief work in the area following the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam over the past week.
A vast percentage of the country’s infrastructure was damaged in one of the worst storms to hit the island in history, resulting in an overwhelming number of displaced people. Superyacht Dragonfly aims to transport aid, SAR and medical teams from the Capital Port Vila to isolated communities on the outlying islands which remain cut off following the storm.
On scene coordination and efforts are not clear at this stage and it is hoped that the yacht and her crew will be able to provide communications and support in this remote area. The vessel is under management with Y.CO
