Private boat requires rescue to dock at Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — A private vessel reported adrift off the coast of Puerto Aventuras was towed to land through a rescue by the Secretaria de Marina. The rescue happened late Monday.

“Personnel from the Fifteenth Naval Zone based in Isla Mujeres provided support to a vessel that was adrift in the vicinity of Puerto Aventuras,” they reported.

“The action was carried out when a report was received in the Command and Control Room of the Fifteenth Naval Zone about a recreational fishing vessel named No Name 2 with six crew members.”

The six Mexicans on board found themselves without propulsion after an engine failure left them stranded. They were located near the shore, however, only about 300 meters from land.

Marina personnel “deployed a smaller Thunderbird-type vessel with specialized personnel on board, which located the aforementioned vessel with all its crew members in good health , proceeding to provide towing support to Puerto Aventuras,” they added.
