Superyacht crew mugged in USVI

Superyacht crew mugged in USVI

One of several superyachts that sailed out from Falmouth Harbour, Antigua, spooked by the murder of Drew Gollan, has reportedly been the subject of an attack and robbery in the USVI. Crew from Alfa Nero were going ashore in St Thomas and were mugged. Early reports suggest that one of them has been injured and hospitalised.

One captain has stated: “Whilst such news may generate a wry smile from those in Antigua who told you so, one can not help but feel that the modern world has arrived in the Caribbean with all its attendant problems and that if the area is to benefit from the superyacht business then the islands need to look into ways in which the crews who work on them are better protected.”
