The 77ft vessel, Positive Energy, was engulfed in a dramatic blaze on the Caribbean island yesterday afternoon. Reports say that the locals spotted it ablaze while moored in Charlotte Amalie harbour and called the firefighters and police. Fire crews struggled to extinguish it for several hours. There were no reports of injuries, according to a local news source.
The huge fire sent thick black plumes of smoke up into the air visible from some distance on the Caribbean island. The US Coast Guard then dragged the yacht to a more remote location.
Reports say that the yacht, previously named Pomboo, was sold for £1.7million million dollars in 2014.
