Superyacht Times. By Laura Nicholls.
The 39.6-metre sailing yacht My Song has fallen off a cargo vessel during her transportation from the Caribbean to the Balearics. During Saturday night the Baltic 130 superyacht was lost in the Mediterranean before reaching the Balearics, where she was due to be unloaded in Ibiza ahead of her appearance in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta next week.
Her owner, YCCS member Pier Luigi Loro Piana, had arranged for My Song to take part in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta as a returning winner after having won the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta last year and being recently declared Boat of the Year at the Italian Sailing Federation's Sailor of the Year awards.
At the 2017 World Superyacht Awards, she was awarded the trophy for Best Sailing Yacht of 30-metres to 39.9-metres.
In 2016 she was delivered to her owner by the Finnish yard Baltic Yachts and features both an interior and exterior design by Nauta as well as naval architecture by Reichel / Pugh Yacht Design. Along with her 56-metre-high Southern Spars rig carrying North Sails and with an overall length of nearly 40 metres, My Song was one of the larger full-carbon yachts on the racing scene with a displacement of 105 tonnes (including the 36-tonne lifting keel) and a maximum speed of over 30 knots.
