The start of the year saw shocking damage to two well-known superyachts: the 52 metre Barbie built by Al Jadaf in 2006, and the 71.05 metre Lürssen-built The One, following a fire which broke out in a marina in Marmaris. Though information pertaining to the extent of the damage is scarce, it was clear from videos circulating in the media at the time that it was significant.
Following SYT’s recent visit to Turkey, we spotted the hull of The One still in Marmaris. Now six months after the incident, it is still uncertain of what exactly will happen to her in the foreseeable future. Completed in 1972 and often considered one of the late Jon Bannenberg’s most impressive designs, the industry will have to wait and see if the fate of The One can still be salvaged.
