The Baltic 130 Custom sailing yacht My Song, which was lost at sea after falling from a cargo ship, has been hauled out in Palma.
The 39.6 metre yacht was salvaged from the coast of Menorca by MCS Marine Claim Services Germany and has now been towed into Palma’s STP shipyard.
It comes after yacht transport company Peters & May released a statement in response to the incident, which saw My Song fall from the 138 metre cargo ship Brattinsborg on Sunday, May 26.
Peters & May chief executive David Holley revealed that the company was informed of the incident at around 4am on May 26th and instructed the captain of Brattinsborg to try and salvage the yacht from the open water.
The cargo ship’s crew kept eyes-on contact with My Song until air and sea salvage attempts began. Holley revealed that My Song’s cradle had “collapsed“, causing the yacht to fall from the cargo ship.
He emphasised that the cradle was “owned and provided by the yacht, warrantied by the yacht for sea transport and assembled by the yacht’s crew.” This cradling system has now been discharged and is under inspection.
Following the incident, Peters & May instructed Brattinsborg to continue to its original destination of Genoa, where it was due to dock on May 27. It previously departed the island of St John in the Caribbean on May 7.
It is understood the yacht was due to attend the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Porto Cervo. Owned by keen regatta sailor Pier Luigi Loro Piana, My Song won the same regatta last year.
Delivered in 2016, My Song features exterior design by Nauta Design with hull lines by Reichel-Pugh naval architects. The five-cabin interior was also designed by Nauta Design.
The single-masted yacht, which was built from a carbon-fibre sandwich construction, features a plumb bow and wide stern.
