A SUPERYACHT crashed into a marina in Cairns after experiencing mechanical problems but the crew was able to minimise the damage.

Footage of the multimillion-dollar vessel’s crash has emerged on social media and news outlets, showing the 45.6-metre yacht Moatize out of control just after 6pm on August 10.

The yacht’s crew were seen at the front of the yacht waving their arms and telling people to get out of the way as other crew members dropped the anchor.


Part of the Cairns marina was closed due to the incident as one of its berthing pontoons was damaged. No people were injured or other boats damaged.

Operator of the marina, Ports North, is investigating the matter.
