According to, “Police said a fire destroyed a large yacht anchored along the southern city of Naples' seafront overnight. The blaze damaged another yacht and several boats at the Mergellina marina, police said. Rain on Wednesday helped extinguish the fire and stop it from spreading to more boats in the marina, according to police. Investigators said they did not rule out arson, but believe the blaze may have been caused by an electrical fault in the yacht's pump system. The Naples mafia or Camorra has carried out previous arson attacks on boats anchored along the city's seafront to force their owners and the marinas to pay 'protection money'.” The full story can be found here:


Does anyone know which yacht this was? Please share any information on this incident here.
