This was a very unique situation of hijacking the yacht. The fact they were not hurt is amazing. The crew mentioned was the owners and a guest.
Now the local government
was so interested in insisting it wasn't technically piracy
but was more like a luxury auto being stolen, you can imagine their lack of recovery effort. The boat
is one of a kind and one would think with an air search could have been discovered as it is a trawler
so not going anywhere fast.
Certainly enough to give one pause and concern although would not appear to be connected to all the Somali piracy
