OMG. Can hardly wait to see how long that settlement takes. Carbon fiber on top of that.

I'd hate to be the person who made the phone call to the owner.

RE The cradle the yacht was 'blocked' on. "(owned and provided by the yacht, warrantied by the yacht for sea transport and assembled by the yacht’s crew)"

That verbiage is very specific. No doubt it was part of the contract. I suspect there is probably a story behind this (e.g. owner insisted he block the vessel rather than the transport crew).

It will be hard to pin this on the tranport company when the owner assumed so much liability. It shoudl be easy to point to a buckled cradle and obsolve the transport company.

The contract will have very little to do with it. Billionaire’s are unpredictable, it will all depend it he wants to turn it into a pissing contest. If he just wants a new yacht he’ll turn to his insurance company and say pay up. If he wants to make a statement he’ll have a team of lawyers coming up with 5700 reasons why it’s everyone else’s fault.

Cradle was okay...attachment to the deck may have been insufficient. Need proof that attachment points didn’t fail first. (Thinking like a billionaires lawyer)

Insurance company lawyers will be looking at exclusions. Was this an intended use of boat from the perspective of the owners policy?

Let's see. I saw only one article that valued the boat at about $33 mil. Think it's a 200 footer. So $163,000 and change per foot. Nope- can't relate.

Learn something new every day. I didn't know a sailboat could be classified as super yacht.

You might be surprised how big a ship you can move on a ship.

Greetings,
Mr. OC. "I didn't know a sailboat could be classified as super yacht." According to my go-to expert (NOT Wikipedia) they indeed can.
