Scuba Scene Liveaboard Destroyed By Fire

-

The Red Sea liveaboard vessel Scuba Scene has been destroyed by a fire, according to news reports.

All its guests and crew members were able to safely evacuate and the vessel itself is a “total loss.

According to a Scubaverse post on Facebook:

“We had just left Hurghada port when I believe a fire began in the engine room. The crew were fantastic, initially we mustered and then evacuated onto one of the zodiacs, the crew then evacuated onto a second zodiac. The crew were calm and professional. They tried hard to control the fire. All guests and crew safe. Now being looked after at a hotel in Hurghada. My heart goes out to them and their families.”

Scuba Scene is 43-meter (141-foot) long dive boat built in 2010-2011.
