PHUKET: Thalang Police today begin their inspections of the burnt-out hull of the 55-metre superyacht Lady D, which was gutted by an onboard inferno at Ao Po Grand Marina yesterday.

 

The fire onboard started at about 8am yesterday (Aug 8), and quickly blazed beyond firefighters ability to control. 

 

The yacht was initially moved some 500 metres from the marina for safety as it was carrying at least 3,000 litres of fuel on board, officials confirmed last night.
