68 foot sailboat lost off of Cape May - 6 rescued

Five adults and a child are safe after the Coast Guard rescued them from their sinking sailboat off the New Jersey coast.

The 68-foot Irvmiren was headed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Nantucket, Massachusetts, when it began taking on water about 25 miles from Cape May on Wednesday night.

Looks like a 68 foot Swan from 1993?

Re: 68 foot sailboat lost off of Cape May - 6 rescued

according to Coast Guard Rescues 6 From Sinking Sailboat Off Cape May - Cape May County Herald

A crewmember aboard Irvmiren used a VHF-FM radio to confirm the boat was taking on water in multiple locations. He also reported there was a life raft aboard, and each person was wearing a life jacket.

What causes water egress in multiple locations other than striking something?

Even Swan's are susceptible to the North Atlantic...

Sound like the boat: IRVMIREN

I am sure someone will suggest it was a re-badged Beneteau.


Glad the got off ok.

Still assessing the multiple locations bit.

There have been lots of whales up that way...

Good to see the Coast Guard actually trying to save the vessel too!

Not relevant to Swan owers but.... I know people bleat on that the only thing thats worth anything is a life.... But if the boat is all you have then thats pretty bloody valuable too!ma destitute depressed person is a financial weight to any country when it could have been avoided like these guys have done.

Re: 68 foot sailboat lost off of Cape May - 6 rescued

That is a great place to be rescued - nice Coast Guard station in Cape May, but why so close to Cape May? Lewes was a former whaling town, and there have been plenty of Humpback sightings near the Bay entrance lately, so I would not be surprised if they had hit a whale.

Left Ft. Lauderdale on way to Mass - 25 miles off Cape May is not exactly the fastest course. Avoiding the Gulfstream? Planning to stop in Cape May or New York? Emergency stop?

Its a tax thing.

For example if the boat was sold in Florida it would encounter a state sales tax of 5% or whatever it is. 5% of $950,000 = $47,000 so its well worth it to drive the boat off shore 12 nms to close the deal.

PS Laws vary, tax rates vary, this was just generalisation
PPS if you bring a boat to Australia to sell you pay 15% of the value of the boat to the government BEFORE you are allowed to advertise it.

On some Swans the incoming through hulls all go into one big box. If the galss on the top fails theres a bloody big hole in the bottom of the boat that 10 foot swells would create a fountain inside.

It will be interesting to get the real story.
