The $90 million super yacht glided right into a wooden jety and then a concrete dock as shocked onlookers caught the incident on video. According to reports, the captain was trying to maneuver out of the Simpson Bay Lagoon, but the 253-foot yacht experienced a computer malfunction causing it to go way off course.
The yacht is owned by European tycoon Hans-Peter Wild, 79, whose estimated worth is $3.3 billion. Wild owns Capri Sun and has strong financial ties to Heidelberger RK a professional German rugby club.
Wild's super yacht is equipped with a helipad, gym steam room, swimming pool and its own onboard hospital.
Authorities say the damage could take months to fix and the St. Maarten Yachy Club has been closed as a result of the crash.
