The other five who were pulled from the water are currently hospitalized in serious condition.
Firefighters launched a search for the missing woman and discovered her around 5.30am this morning before handing over the investigation to the police.
A breakwater, usually built outside a port, decreases the damage caused by the blows of the waves.
We understand that the boat was coming ashore when it hit the wall and capsized.
