Investigators have been unable to find the cause of a fire that destroyed a luxury yacht at Port Penrhyn in Bangor because it was so badly damaged.

The yacht is believed to be the 75ft Atlantic Eagle, a Sunseeker Predator cruiser, which ran aground off Moelfre in 2017, and was being renovated at Port Penrhyn.

The fire started at 12.35am on Saturday morning with four fire engines attending the incident. North Wales Police cordoned off the area and an investigation was launched into the cause of the fire.

Two casualties were involved in the incident with one person taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for the North Wales Fire and rescue service said: “On May 18, at Porth Penrhyn Bangor, at 12.32am, two crews from Caernarfon and two crews from Bangor, attended a boat fire with 100% damage.

“There was one male casualty and one female casualty involved. The cause is unknown, but a fire service investigation is now over.”

A spokesperson for the North Wales Ambulance Service said: ““We were called in the early hours of Saturday, May 18, at approximately 12.58am to reports of a boat on fire in the Porth Penrhyn area, Bangor.

“We responded with one ambulance and one patient was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.”
