What was supposed to be a dream for a young man, ended as a nightmare. He had just bought the former fishing boat, and together with a few friends, he set out towards home.
On their way, everything that could go wrong, went wrong.
Within the first hour the gearbox overheated, and they had to find the nearest marina. Once repaired, they continued their travel north, but after a few hours they ran into another problem, the boat took on water and despite having more than one power supply systems, the electricity onboard went out several times, leaving the boat without pumps.
Around midnight they alerted the emergency services and were told to steer towards shallow waters as they could risk having to swim ashore. Luckily, the rescue team got to them before it got that far.
Today the shipwreck is still there, abandoned, stranded where it was left, now rapidly decaying.
