cut its ropes in order to prevent the fire from traveling down the rope and spreading to nearby ships.

Is this some thai rope trick?

Looks like another Thai built yacht, maybe by the same company that built the boat which sank in Phuket

What was is about it's appearance that gave you that impression?  Couldn't have been bizarre, unwarranted speculation by any chance, could it?

Either that or a Thai crew so hence the fire suppression equipment was poorly  maintained or else when the fire alarm sounded they all ran away.

Or, perhaps, as it was US built, British owned, Canadian captained and had sailed from Malaysia it didn't have a Thai crew.

Yacht, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I'd bet that it was more of a superyacht than you'll ever step foot on, never mind own.

dont yachts have sails and are propelled by wind?

Superyachts don't and aren't.

 

But this is a motor yacht, hardly super.

"As it was an ex US coastguard vessel  and an ex rig supply vessel".

Are you suggesting that ex-US coastguard vessels and ex-rig supply vessels can't be British-owned, Canadian-captained or sail from Malaysia?

Bangkok Post.

Well of course something you can not quote , how inconvenient. But hey just tell me the the date of the Bangkok post when it was published as the article I read in it gave no such details but perhaps I missed one.  Many thanks.

No not at all. I am just asking for the links to confirm the facts about your statement as it is a Caymans flagged vessel.

Mega yacht LADY D, IMO 7644219, GT 1285, length 56 m, built 1976, flag Cayman Islands, passengers up to 24, crew 16. Since Apr 2019 listed for sale, price tag 5 mil euro.
