Amver ship saves 3 near Mexico

Three adults were rescued by an Amver ship from their 61 foot catamaran Twin Cove after the boat became disabled 100 miles south east of Salina Cruz, Mexico on Friday, March 21, 2014.

The three yachtsmen alerted rescue authorities the boat was disabled and had a broken window with water coming in. They said they could only keep up with the flooding for about three hours.

The Amver participating bulk ship Gardenia K heard the catamaran's distress call on the radio and diverted to assist. Once on scene the crew of the 590 foot Marshall Island flagged ship embarked the three survivors. The three survivors were in good health and were wearing life jackets at the time of the rescue.

The catamaran was left adrift.

The Gardenia K, managed by Misuga Kaiun Co. Ltd., enrolled in Amver on February 20, 2014.
