The $20 million superyacht Masteka 2 lost steering and started taking on water about 260 kilometers from Port Macquarie, a town located at the mouth of the Hastings River in New South Wales, Australia. At the time of the accident, after 5 p.m. last Tuesday, October 4, the yacht carried six passengers.
Two workers who were hurt during the incident were rescued from the ship before it sank. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority instructed Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Spirit to remain with the yacht until they could come investigate the situation and make sure everyone was safe.
