Video: Cruise ship crashes into four yachts in Dartmouth, England

Aug 31, 2018

The cruise ship Saga Pearl 2 has hit as many as 4 luxury yachts during a maneuver in the small port of Dartmouth on 29th August. The vessel piloted by Captain Mark Cooper (the Harbourmaster) was brought into the Port of Dartmouth. During a maneuver to turn, the ship clipped 4 yachts causing superficial damage. No one was hurt in the incident and the harbour office is now making all efforts to contact the owners of the yacht involved.

Some report that the yacht owners, seeing the ship so close, started running in their pajamas, frightened, from one side of the boat to the other.

The video shows the moment of the collision.

Records from the incident are being collected and will be analyzed in order to identify exactly why this occurred and what can be learned.
