2013 Lagoon 450 that had a very bad day

This happend in October to a brand new 450 in the BVI's. Rumor has it the owner was captain and only had it for 3 days. What a tragedy. I feel horrible for this couple.

Lagoon 450, Sandy Spit. | Facebook

That's pretty much what was confirmed on the BVI forum at traveltalkonline.com. Apparently the bottoms were ripped out was dragged off the reef by the tow boat.

I guess if you're going to buy an ex-charter boat you better check the Husky Marine site first!

Amazing it stayed afloat at all, that's not a hole in the bottom because there is no bottom....

I dont think it did float. Looks like the reef kept it up.

the original holing was just that, but the rest of the bottom was ripped out while trying to get the boat off the reef.
