two boats sank in Rhodes marina

I was yesterday in Rhodes and wanted to stay one night in recently opened marina instead of Mandrake. My agency said this was impossible as the day before two boats sank because of heavy swells coming in. From the pictures that they showed me one of the boats was a motor catamaran around 45 ft, the other one is a sailing boat, both completely destroyed. Also Princess 60 motor yacht has been damaged heavily but didn't sink.
From what I understand the owners were israeli and they were not on board.
It seems that all boats now are back to Mandrake and this latter will certainly be very busy in the upcoming season.

Cheers

Re: two boats sank in Rhodes marina

You mean, the one near the beach that was built, but not functional, for many years?

What a start!!! Cannot find pictures or a notice of the accident anywhere.

Yes, this is it..
The agency showed the pics but didn't want to give them to me for understandable reasons, Rhodes is a small community and the top management of the marina are the relatives of the local big guys. (mayor, port manager, etc)
I've just found this one..
