Wasn't the another fancy yacht that was found floating without its crew and with no signs of struggle and nothing apparently stolen out of it a couple of years ago?


I second the Pirates. Mostly because pirates are cool. ;-D

I would think the Australia waters would be pretty safe. Most of the Pirates you hear about are off the coast of Africa.

Maybe they were members of a cult that got it right this time.

I didn't hear about this one....probably because I don't read the newspaper, or watch the news (it's all too negative).

Interesting story. Doubtful that it was Pirates - not in those waters. Where the boat was found (the same general area) are some of the nicest beaches, and most expensive resorts in the country.

The torn sail sounds like poor weather. Maybe they were swept overboard while trying to repair it (or something else outside).

But wow, that boat would be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. No way I'm leaving it without a fight....

Funny i was thinking the exact same thing.


Me too.

I remember reading about that story in one of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers when I was younger. One detail that stuck out was that there was a sword with blood on it found under the Captain's bed, which doesn't make sense given the "most likely" explanation put forth by Wikipedia. Also one of the theories was that the ship was attacked by a Giant Squid, which would be by far the most awesome explanation.
