Yacht Transport Ship in Trouble Off Norway –

Norwegian search and rescue crews are responding to a yacht transport ship that is listing after its cargo reportedly shifted off the west coast of Norway on Monday.

The cargo ship appears to be the MV Eemslift Hendrika belonging to Star Class Yacht Transport, which operates two vessels including the Eemslift Hendrika and offers threetimes weekly yacht transport between Norway and Turkey.

Norway’s Joint Rescue Coordination Center reports that it picked up a distress signal from the vessel, which was located 60 nautical miles west of Ålesund, Norway with 12 crew members on board. The organization sent 3 helicopters and 2 vessels to assist.

SAR crews initially evacuated 8 crew members, leaving 4 remaining on board. However, an update later on Monday said all crew members have now been evacuated and the ship is abandoned and listing by as much as 30 degrees.

The Norwegian Coastal Administration and the shipping company are reportedly working on a plan for the vessel.

One person was reported injured and taken to a hospital.

MV Eemslift Hendrika, built in 2015, is managed by Amasus Shipping B.V. and is registered in the Netherlands.

A video of the vessel filmed from a SAR helicopter is below:
