A private yacht was destroyed Monday and a second one was damaged in a fire that broke out in the first vessel at Latsi harbour.

The vessels were docked side by side when the fire broke out in one of the two in the morning.

The blaze erupted while its owner and technicians were onboard doing maintenance work.

Workers said they noticed smoke coming from the vicinity of the propeller and immediately disconnected the battery.

The fire spread quickly because of flammable materials kept on board, despite the efforts of the owner and the workers.

It was eventually put out by the fire service which, along with the ports authority, also took measures to prevent pollution of the sea.

The vessel was insured for €70,000.
