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.

Thanks, not read today's yet, but given the events and the fact it has been for sale for 5 mill, then insurance job perhaps ?

Not a great loss. Just an old American mud boat. There are a lot more of them in Louisiana, cheap.

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

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

That's mine in the photograph......

If they had proper fire equipment, they probably could have saved it.  Maybe it was an insurance scam-the owner could not make payments

Super yacht aha maybe in 1970... 

Its a converted supply ship or reseach vessel. 

The thing is ancient.

dont yachts have sails and are propelled by wind?

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

It's a marina, not a port.

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 "
