Yacht transport ship in trouble off Norway

Cargo shifted and ship developed a list. Crew abandoned ship.

Latest videos show green workboat gone over the side taking crane boom with it.

Odd how the crew jumped off so quickly. It will be interesting to how the decision to abandon ship was made. It appears the vessel was still under propulsion after the last man jumped off.

Wow, those videos embedded in the G Captain article are amazing. Felt like I was there. The CG personnel who do those Helo rescues are major league bad asses.

Is there a good reason they didn't use their own lifeboat?

The report I read said the shop was listing. With the deck load I’m not sure I’d hang around. The ship is pretty new at 2015.

Seems a bit early to abandon ship. God Bless the rescue crew.

I’m surprised that the ship doesn’t have a way to trim (water ballast?) the list. Good work by CG!

Watching this video of the crew being lifted off (and one apparently had to jump in the water) it didn't look too early to me! You can really see the boat's situation at the end of the (short) video.

Reportedly cargo in the hold shifted and hull was breached allowing water into the hold. Initially 8 crew taken off but situation deteriorated and remaining 4 evacuated. In weather and seas like that, better helicopter winch than a lifeboat that will bob around like a cork. attached video appears to show the hole in the hull.

Pretty sure all transfers in heavy sea are considered high risk maneuvers including helicopter hoisting.

Luckily it was daytime and clear for the hoists I watched.

Night and bad vis and its a different ballgame.

Smits now has a crew on board and cables from the ship to ocean going tugs. It is interesting that they have put people back aboard after the crew & captain abandoned ship

Most vessels are more seaworthy than their crew.

I'd bet they have a little better handle on the stability situation, how to manage it and how to get the crew back off if needed. The original crew was likely concerned that if the situation degraded further, they may lose the ability to depart the ship safely.

It's just a boat and just carrying "stuff." We each only have ONE LIFE. Cargo and ship are totally expendable and disposable - and replaceable. The crew may be less seaworthy that the ship. So what. I'm so glad their lives were saved.

That's why salvage companies/crews stand to make a lot of money on a salvage. Risk to life, limb and equipment means salvage rates over just time and materials for "assists".

So it lost some of the cargo? In the second video it looks like two in the middle are gone? Did those break loose and sink, or are they afloat?

At least one is afloat, it is a brand new large steel workboat being delivered from the builder. Worth north of 6M Euros.
