Pleasure boat, which capsized near Tuapse, was overloaded. This was stated by the head of the company-manufacturer of the vessel and the developer of its project Dmitry Srybny, reports TASS.
According to him, the vessel was built in 2008, its capacity, according to the project, 12 people, including crew members. “On the ship with a length of 10.7 m and a width of 3.7 m can take a maximum of 20 people, but overweight four times — more than 40 people on Board is critical, too much”, — added the head of the company.
Sreebny said that the warranty on the boat was for six years, and after this period it should be disposed of. The first owner sold the ship eight years ago, after which it carried out repairs. The buyer removed the watertight bulkheads and built a second deck that is unsafe to run the boat wide at least six meters. In this regard, the angle of the resistance decreased.
“Freeboard at stern was 30 inches if it is to make triple Overdrive, that the aft will shrink and become level with the water (…): on Board went in the water on the second deck began to panic,” — told his version of what happened the head. He concluded that the greed of the new owners of the ship closed their eyes to the shipping quality.
The tragedy occurred on Friday, 5 July at 17:50 local time in the waters of the Black sea, at a distance of about 100 meters from the shoreline. Two people were killed. The basic version happened — an overload of the vessel. Criminal case is brought.
