Eyewitness footage shows Turkish firefighters trying to salvage two burned superyachts, which were heavily damaged in a marina fire in Marmaris

Two superyachts were ravaged by a marina fire in the Turkish town of Marmaris early this morning (January 4).

It is believed that the fire started at around 0200 local time on board 73m Lürssen superyacht The One. 35-knot winds helped to spread the flames to 52m GRP vessel Barbie, which was moored nearby.

Local broker Eliad Hagiladi of Yacht Marine filmed the blaze in the early hours and also got some close-up footage of the firefighters’ salvage efforts during the daylight hours, as they pumped water out of the burned superyachts.

As the video above shows, Barbie was badly burned and had begun listing to port, sparking fears that the vessel might sink. Launched in 2006, she was built in Dubai by the Al Jadaf shipyard.

Mr Hagliadi was keen to point out that all of his brokerage vessels had escaped the fire unscathed, although some vessels had to be anchored outside of the marina as a safety precaution.

UPDATE: The Daily Mail reports that Barbie was owned by former Galatasary FC president Unal Aysal.
