ATHENS - No injuries or sea pollution were reported from the partial sinking of the Cayman islands-flagged yacht "Nourah of Riyad" in the sea off a shipyard in Perama, while it was being taken out of the water.

The yacht developed a 45-degree list, while the 12 crew members safely left the vessel.

The incident resulted in damage to the facilities of an adjacent shipyard and to the equipment of adjacent tourist boat "LAMADIN", which was already pulled up onto the land.
