A skipper and his deck hand caused $ 140,000 in damage after crashing a luxury yacht because they were too busy having sex.
The ship, which is rented for $ 1600 per hour, collided with a navigation beacon and a yacht that was secured in March 2018 at Steiglitz, the northern part of the Gold Coast.
Jeremy Kane Piggott and Cheya Handley had sex and drank alcohol while they brought back the boat – Crystal Blue – from the rented trip across the Brisbane River, according to court documents.
During the 86-kilometer journey, the two alleged collisions and Crystal Blue were grounded more than once, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.

Judicial documents reveal Ms. Handley told police that she had been drinking vodka and beer with the skipper, who had 27 years of experience.
& # 39; Handley stated that (Piggott) took a series of photos of her while standing on the bow. & # 39;
& # 39; Handley confirmed that she and the defendant also had a sexual encounter around this time while the ship was in operation. & # 39;
She also told the police that the two were intimate at the bow, but not while they were at the helm.
& # 39; Mrs. Handley further confirmed that the vessel was built more than once in the South Channel and that no one was watching while she and (Piggott) were engaged in sexual intercourse. & # 39;
It took four weeks to repair the boat after it had undergone an indentation on the ridges and the hull and scratches.

Piggott pleaded guilty to captain who recklessly exceeded his duty to ensure the safety of ships, maritime safety equipment or operations at the Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Piggott, who lost his part-time job after romping, got $ 4,000 and got a good deal of behavior from magistrate John Costanzo for two years.
His lawyer Mark Williams said in a written submission that the infringement & # 39; out of character & # 39; used to be.
Mrs. Handley will appear in court in December for a charge related to risking someone's safety on a domestic ship.
According to the Crystal Blue website, the ship costs $ 1690 per hour for a chartered trip on the Gold Coast.
