Woops! Luxury yacht worth £ 30 million falls from a cargo ship in the Mediterranean and is totally destroyed
- Photos & # 39; s showed the & # 39; My Song & # 39; who floated on Tuesday from Minorca
- The £ 30 million yacht was transported by a cargo ship during a storm
- It was brought back from America on a cargo ship for a regatta in Sardinia
The yacht goes on a luxury yacht of £ 30 million that has fallen overboard from a cargo ship in a sudden violent storm in the Mediterranean.
The 130-foot & # 39; My Song & # 39; – built three years ago for the billionaire Italian fashion boss Pier Luigi Laro Piana – was brought back from America on a cargo ship for a regatta in Sardinia when the storm struck and the yacht fell off the deck of the ship.
The 100-tonne yacht, which set the Monohull record during last year's prestigious transatlantic race at the Royal Ocean Racing Club, was observed half-immersed earlier today and drifted 40 miles from Menorca.

& # 39; My Song & # 39; s & # 39; multi-millionaire owner Pier Luigi is an heir to the high-end clothing company Loro Piana
Experts say that even if the destroyed yacht is recovered, it will almost certainly be a total write-off.
Her owner had arranged that & # 39; My Song & # 39; would participate in the 2018 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, where she was a recurring winner.
Pier Luigi is an heir to the high-end clothing company Loro Piana, which was founded in 1924 by his grandfather Pietro.
My Song is described as & # 39; a wolf in sheep's clothing & # 39; – it has a 56 meter high mast and can reach more than 30 knots under full sail.
A yacht expert said: “It's a terribly sad ending for the illustrious yacht that was the beauty of the ball at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards and picked up the best sailing yacht trophy of its size.
& # 39; It was packed with modern design and technology and also served as a comfortable cruise yacht. & # 39;
