Not in Florida but am willing to bet the owner of Azteca has no qualms paying tow fees.

Unless I misinterpreted it, This happened in Miami at a wide open bridge over a long causeway. Maybe this was a repo job??

Actually was said to be a sea trial after some work was done. While the boat was for sale, repossession not the case. Name, "Rockstar". Owner, Russell Weiner. Net worth, $1.5 billion. Bridge not all that wide open and narrow channel but tow was probably for trip back to the shipyard.

It looks like St. Martins. Azteca is not alone on yachts "touching", coming or going into Simpson Bay Lagoon. Accidents do happen.

It's only 56' wide and Azteca has a 44' beam. Wide beam ships are required to request piloting. And...."If unfortunately your vessel damages the bridge structure while transiting the bridge channel or if your vessel damages a buoy or marker while maneuvering, you will be held liable for all visible and hidden damages. Your vessel will not be allowed to leave port without settling the claim presented by the Lagoon Authority." And it doesn't open with wind greater than 20 knots.
