Rocks Rip Hole In Multi-Million Dollar Luxury Yacht Off Cape Cod

FALMOUTH (CBS) – A multi-million dollar 100-foot yacht ran into some major trouble Friday off the Cape.

Police say the boat “Cocktails” crashed into some rocks near Nobska Beach in Falmouth.  The rocks managed to rip a 20-by-4-foot hole in the hull.  The captain grounded the yacht to keep it from sinking.

Several Coast Guard and private towing vessels managed to pump out the water that gushed into the boat.

A private salvage company was towing the luxury yacht to Fairhaven where it was going to be repaired.

According to the boat’s website, it rents for more than $42,000 a week. The website says the yacht “features a dedicated crew of four headed by Captain Todd Likins, she is an excellent charter yacht for luxury vacations.”

No word on how long the ship will be out of service for.
