A Superyacht Gave a Lifeline to 100 Migrants Thrown Into the Sea

A $175 million vessel responded to a distress call and helped rescue survivors in one of the Mediterranean’s worst wrecks in decades, reflecting the new inequality of the seas.

Emergency workers helping people disembark a yacht.

By Jason Horowitz and Matina Stevis-Gridneff

Jason Horowitz reported from Souda, Greece, on the island of Crete, and Matina Stevis-Gridneff from Brussels.

The superyacht Mayan Queen IV was sailing smoothly in clear weather through the dark and calm Mediterranean in the early hours of June 14 when it received a call about a migrant ship in distress four nautical miles away.

About 20 minutes later, shortly before 3 a.m., the towering $175-million yacht, owned by the family of a Mexican silver magnate, arrived at the scene. The distressed boat had already sunk. All the four-person crew could see were the lights of a Greek Coast Guard vessel scanning the water’s inky surface. But they could hear the screams of survivors.

“Horrible,” said the Mayan Queen’s captain, Richard Kirkby, who described the sea as “pitch black” on that nearly moonless night.

In a few hours, the 305-foot Mayan Queen, more accustomed to pleasure boating to Monaco and Italy with billionaires and their friends aboard, was filled with 100 desperate, dehydrated and sea-soaked Pakistani, Syrian, Palestinian and Egyptian men, as it played an unexpected role in one of the deadliest migrant shipwrecks in decades. As many as 650 men, women and children drowned .

The incongruous image of the devastated survivors disembarking the Mayan Queen on a port in Kalamata last week underlined what has become the strange reality of the modern Mediterranean, where the superyachts of the superrich, equipped with swimming pools, Jacuzzis, helipads and other trappings of luxury, share the seas with the most destitute on smuggler-operated boats perilously crossing from northern Africa to Europe.

The world’s waterways have become a reflection of global inequalities in recent days. In the North Atlantic, a billionaire, his son and other businessmen set out to explore the wreck of the Titanic on a luxury tourist submersible that has gone missing, touching off an international search and rescue operation .

Days earlier, the Greek authorities repeatedly decided not to assist a roughly 80- to 100-foot fishing trawler stuffed with as many as 750 people fleeing desperate poverty and the displacement of war in Greece’s search-and-rescue area. Only when the ship sank in front of the Coast Guard did the authorities spur to action, calling on the Mayan Queen, one of the world’s 100 largest yachts.

“As soon as you are notified and in close proximity and you can do so, you are obligated,” to try and rescue, said Aphrodite Papachristodoulou, an expert in the law of the sea and human rights at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. She said it was not unusual to have luxury yachts in the area.

Why the Greek authorities needed to call on a passing yacht to come to the rescue of an overcrowded and rickety ship that they had been monitoring and communicating with in their search-and-rescue area for a full day, she said, was less obvious.

“The practice of nonassistance or delay of assistance and why the Greeks were not proceeding to the rescue is another question mark,” she said.

There was one Greek Coast Guard vessel already on the scene when the Mayan Queen arrived, and its seamen were in a raft saving scores of men from the water. The crew of the Mayan Queen lowered its life raft with three of its own crew, and followed the cries for help, pulling 15 men onboard, the captain said.

A vivid retelling of events provided under sworn testimony by Mr. Kirkby, and obtained by The New York Times, added that none of those saved were wearing life vests. Some clutched floating pieces of wood. For hours afterward, the yacht crew kept eerily quiet and beamed its brightest lights to better hear and see.

Investigators are still seeking to understand what exactly happened as the trawler sank trying to reach Italy — whether smugglers refused assistance and panic on the ship caused it to capsize, as the Coast Guard claims, or whether a failed attempt to tow the ship caused it to sink, as some survivors contend. In either case, it fell to the Mayan Queen to shoulder much of the rescue.

The gleaming yacht, sailing from Italy, transported 100 of the 104 survivors and four Greek coast guard officials — as well as about a dozen bodies — to port.

“I would like to think that we did what anyone would do,” said Mr. Kirkby, who used to pilot the superyacht Le Grand Bleu , of the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich. He added on Wednesday that, because of a nondisclosure agreement and the “contentious” circumstances of the ship’s sinking, he could not say much more.

“I wouldn’t like to see the Coast Guard get a bad rap,” he said. “They did all they could.”

Mr. Kirkby spoke briefly in a cafe in the port of Souda, where the yacht was docked near a cruise ship delivering tourists to the Cretan city of Chania, an industrial Russian vessel and a parking lot filled with stationary truck containers. The vessel’s crew carried out chores, and like the captain wore T-shirts featuring a drawing of the yacht on the back and a B, for the family of the ship’s late owner, Alberto Baillères, on the breast pocket.

On Wednesday morning one crewman carried an umbrella up the gangway that the migrants unsteadily walked down last week, some of them met by stretchers and health workers with foil blankets. By the ship’s stern, with the silvered letters of “Mayan Queen” and “George Town” sparkling in the hot sun and under pumping house music, crew members worked where the migrants huddled upon reaching the Kalamata port.

According to Boat International, a yachting news site, the Mayan Queen, which flies a Cayman Islands flag, is in the top 100 for the world’s largest superyachts. It was built by the Hamburg-based shipbuilder Blohm & Voss GmbH in 2008 and designed by Tim Heywood , a favorite of the yachting set.

“Her power comes from two diesel engines. She can accommodate up to 26 guests, with 24 crew members,” the magazine wrote. “She is built with a teak deck, a steel hull, and aluminium superstructure.”

That craftsmanship stood in stark contrast to the condition of the ship that hundreds of migrants, paying thousands of dollars a head, crammed into last week in Libya, in the hopes of reaching Italy.

Witnesses said in sworn testimony obtained by The Times that passengers suffered beatings with belts and deprivation. Smugglers threw food into the water. Pakistani men were kept in the hold and hundreds of them sank with women and children into one of the deepest parts of the Mediterranean. Only the lucky ones reached the Mayan Queen’s decks.

At around 6 a.m. on the morning of the wreck, as the sun came up, Mr. Kirkby received a call to transport all the 100 rescued men from the Coast Guard vessel to the nearest port.

He offered dry clothes and water to the men, some of whom, he said, “were in a bad way.” For hours the survivors, wrapped in gray blankets and mourning their losses, sailed on the superyacht. At 11:20 a.m. the Mayan Queen and its unexpected passengers arrived to port.

“We took them all,” Mr. Kirkby said.

What we know about billionaire Mexican superyacht owner Alberto Bailleres

THE owner of the $200m luxury yacht where an Aussie model died leads a notoriously private life. Here’s what we know about him.

Surprise new detail about Jetstar passenger

Surprise new detail about Jetstar passenger

WITH an estimated fortune of more than $13 billion, Mexican mining tycoon Alberto Bailleres is one of the world’s richest people.

His beloved Mayan Queen IV is worth about $200 million and is one of the largest — and most admired — superyachts in the world.

Australians caught a glimpse of the six-storey, 93m floating palace in 2011 when Mr Bailleres sailed her into Sydney, docking at Balmain against the spectacular backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Yet despite the vessel’s fame and regular international tours, only a privileged few — including Australian model and crew member Sinead McNamara, who died on board last Friday in bizarre circumstances — have ever laid eyes on the inside.

“Not much is known about (Mayan Queen IV’s) interior and there are no interior photos available,” states the website .

“We do know the VIP suite has an ‘invisible balcony’ … a platform slides out from under the superstructure when needed, preserving the yacht’s sleek lines.”

Like his prized boat, 84-year-old, married father-of-seven Mr Bailleres prefers to keep the details of his private life under wraps and is rarely photographed in public.

Ms McNamara’s family members say the popular Instagram influencer had been working on the Mayan Queen IV for about four months.

Mr Bailleres is believed to have spent the past few weeks holidaying with relatives on the boat but disembarked last Tuesday to fly home to Mexico City, leaving the crew to their own devices, according to local media.

Less than three days later, Ms McNamara was dead in what investigators suspect was a suicide but speculation has been rife on social media that she may have been involved in an accident or even foul play.

Officials at the Port of Argostoli have said that a crew member found the young woman unconscious and hanging from rope at the back of the vessel at around 2am on Friday.

Australian model Sinead McNamara died on board Mexican billionaire Alberto Bailleres' $US140m ($A200m) superyacht. Picture: Instagram

Kefalonian Mantata reported crew members and the boat’s doctor “tried for a long time to bring her back” before she was taken ashore in a comatose state and driven by ambulance to a hospital in Argostoli.

Doctors then decided to airlift her to a private hospital in Athens but she died during the helicopter flight.

The tragedy came as Ms McNamara’s mother Kylie and sister Lauren were en route to join her in Greece for a holiday. They were reportedly told the news while in transit.

The young model had been looking forward to their visit, posting an upbeat message on social media just days before her death.

“Happy birthday to the most amazing big sister I could ever ask for, 5 days till I get to see you!!! Excitement is an ­understatement”, she wrote.

That post was in stark contrast to an earlier, cryptic message that appeared on Ms McNamara’s Instagram page.

“My head is all over the shop today,” she wrote, along with emojis of a volcano, a tornado and a needle with blood dripping from it.

Sharing an image of herself on a quad bike, she added: “Take me back to this where my only worry was not cracking my skull open.”

Australian model Sinead McNamara wrote a cryptic Instagram post two weeks before her death. Picture: Instagram

Mr Bailleres has so far stayed silent on the tragedy and remains holed up in his family mansion in Mexico City, according to Mexico News Daily .

The octogenarian is the country’s second richest person, with an estimated net worth of US$9.6 billion ($A13.4 billion).

In addition to the $200m ($A140 million) Mayan Queen, Mr Bailleres also owns a Gulfstream G650 private jet, which he purportedly bought for more $US65 million ($A90 million.

The businessman inherited control of Grupo BAL, a conglomerate of Mexican companies involved in mining, trade, finance, agriculture and health, following the death of his politician father in 1967.

Most of his wealth is generated by Mexico’s second largest mining company, Industrias Penoles, which produces 25,000kg of gold and 2.5 million kg of silver annually.

Mr Bailleres also owns El Palacio de Hierro, a chain of boutique stores where those in the money can pick up a hand-stitched designer bags for $US2400 ($A3300) or a US$25,000 ($A34,700) jewel-studded watch.

Cruise Ship tragedies: Murders, disappearances and more

When you think of Bali, its pristine beaches come to mind. But there’s another side to the popular island you may not be aware of.

Police have unleashed on a pair of “clowns” who were found on a beach in Florida, but it’s what they did that’s left authorities furious.

The man who filmed an unruly passenger unleashing on board a Jetstar flight bound for Bali has revealed new details not shown on camera.

BLOHM and VOSS Yachts – Operating Since 1877

This historical yet flourishing and operational German shipyard has survived all kinds of storms for nearly two centuries.

Blohm & Voss has persevered through wars and economic downturns without ever completely shutting its doors.

Blohm and Voss History

Blohm and Voss were founded in 1877 with the somewhat simple aim of constructing iron steamships.

It wouldn’t take long before this vision matured into a much larger and more profitable venture.

They built massive steamships, warships, and sailing ships. Recognizing the important changes in ship design in places like the U.K., Blohm and Voss rose to the challenge and became the first non-U.K shipyard to use steel in its production of steamboats.

This feat, along with its reputation for quick delivery, brought profitable attention to B+V. By the early 20th century, they had begun to build passenger ships.

In 1900, the Hamburg American Line, a cruise line, launched its first passenger ship in collaboration with Blohm & Voss.

Today, the company offers both military and civilian services. Its military end is operated by ThyssenKrupp, while its civilian business—which exclusively launches custom, luxury superyachts—is controlled by Star Capital.

Notable Launches

One of the most famous yachts launched by the shipyard is Lady Moura . She is one of the biggest yachts in the world.

The 162.5-m Eclipse , owing to its interior and exterior design to Terence Disdale , was also built by Blohm and Voss.

Blohm & Voss continues to put out marvels in naval architecture in collaboration with some of the most creative yacht designers in the world. They also offer yacht management and refit services.
