The Department of Environment (DoE) says it’s highly likely that Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen’s 300 Foot mega yacht is behind a fresh case of damage to a coral reef.
DoE confirmed it is investigating an incident on Cayman’s west side near the Doc Poulson Wreck. On Thursday (January 14) Cayman 27 took video of the mega yacht “Tatoosh” after being alerted to the possibility of another anchor damage incident. Officials from the DoE paid a visit to the mega yacht on Friday to talk to the Captain and take preliminary documentation of what they called substantial damage to the reef.
The DoE said the investigation is in the very earliest stages and expect to conduct dives on the site in the coming days to quantify the extent of the damage.
