Marc Anthony Yacht Fire Destroys the $6.99 million dollar Benetti
Tonight footage has been all over social media of the 120ft yacht Andiamo, reportedly owned by Marc Anthony. The 51-year-old singer is believed to be in Puerto Rico on the final date of his OPUS tour.
Firefighters rushed to put out the blaze and also keep it from spreading to nearby docks and boats. The yacht was docked at Watson Island. Watson Island is a neighborhood on a man made island in Biscayne Bay. It is home to the Miami Yacht Club.
More than 45 firefighters from City of Miami and Miami-Dade County departments helped extinguish the blaze. Fire boats were deployed, with the flames being fought from dockside and from the water.
The damage to the yacht is believed to be ‘catastrophic’ and the vessel is ‘a complete loss’. Eventually the yacht capsized near its dock.
The 120 foot yacht, which was sold in 2017 with an asking price of $6.99 million dollars, houses a jacuzzi, docking station with multiple PWC, and multiple motorized, hidden televisions. Just last year Anthony hosted soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria on the yacht so there are many pictures of the grey yacht to choose from. When you go look this yacht up you’ll find that Andiamo is a popular yacht name! Looks like Marc will be shopping for a new one.
