A luxury yacht has been devastated by a fire at Port Penrhyn in Bangor.

The incident happened during the early hours of Saturday morning, 18 May. North Wales Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 12.32am to attend the boat fire.

Four fire engines attended the incident, two from Bangor and two from Caernarfon, they remained at the scene all night. North Wales Police were also at the scene and an area of the dock was cordoned off.

Despite their efforts, fire crews were unable to save the vessel, one fire crew remained on the scene during Saturday morning using foam on the smouldering boat.

The boat 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.

Sunseeker Predators boast twin engines and a fibreglass hull, with a length of 75ft and beam (width) of 16ft. Top speed is around 37 knots with a fuel tank capacity of 5,000 litres. It can sleep seven people and has an hydraulic bathing platform. The boats are valued at anything from £300,000 up to £2m.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is now underway and unconfirmed reports suggest that one person was injured in the incident while trying to escape from the fire.
