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.

Today's online BP.  You're welcome.

probably near to retirement, old vessels like this become very expensive to maintain

 

I wonder how much it was insured for 

That thought had already crossed my mind also

Responding firefighters discovered the “Lady D” was out of reach, as it had parked 500 metres beyond the furthest extremity of the port

So no marine firefighting vessel at the port then.. hmmmm

No. Sailing yachts have sails and auxiliary engines, motor yachts have engines. A yacht is just a pleasure vessel.

Actually;

 

yacht
/jɒt/
noun
 
  1. 1.
    a medium-sized sailing boat equipped for cruising or racing.

verb
 
  1. 1.
    race or cruise in a yacht.

The Oxford English dictionary and Websters dictionary mention both sail and motor yachts.

I think these dictionaries have more credibility than the one you used.

I assume you state that to dispute that you were wrong .  Or else you can not be bothered to quote anything.

 

Let me help you, something from the Oxford English dictionary you appear to have misplaced. By the way that is not the concise edition.

 

"a large sailing boat, often also with an engine and a place to sleep on board, used for pleasure trips and racing a yacht club/race a motor yacht a luxury yacht "
