Fire destroys 60-foot yacht in Apollo Beach

Published Dec. 7, 2016

A 60-foot yacht that was up for sale was destroyed by a fire late Tuesday in Apollo Beach, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.

The yacht was docked in a bayou at 6649 Dolphin Cove Drive when it caught fire just before midnight, HCFR spokesman Corey Dierdorff said.

Dierdorff said 12 units responded, and it took firefighters about 90 minutes to extinguish the blaze.

A 1999 yacht in Apollo Beach is listed for $225,000 on Yacht World, an online boat sales website. It has three staterooms, and separate dining and galley areas.

Fire officials are investigating the cause of the fire, Dierdorff said. No injuries were reported.
