Fort Lauderdale: Weekend Fire Destroys Two Yachts At Local Marina

The charred and flooded hulls of a 78-foot Azimut (Lady Lex) and 50-foot Sunseeker (It's About Time) sit on the bottom of the New River today after both yachts were engulfed in flames early Sunday morning.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported but the cause of the fire at Yacht Management South Florida's dock remains under investigation while officials toil to mitigate any further environmental damage caused by diesel spilled into the waterway.

According to one witness at the marina, the Sunseeker was listed for sale and getting prepped for the Miami International Boat Show. Yacht Management's risk manager, Lee Burke, estimated the yachts' market value at around $2 million. We're guessing that's probably a conservative estimate.
