The Belgium-flagged Privilege 495 catamaran Ker-Tidou exploded shortly after sunrise last weekend on the coast of Baja California Sur, in a fishing village called Bahia de Tortugas. The cat burned to the waterline and sank within 40 minutes.

Thierry Bonnefille escaped the inferno by scrambling aboard his dinghy. According to Enrique Castro of El Gordo's fuel dock the boat had been experiencing electrical issues, which may have interacted with cooking gas to cause the explosion.

I guess the boat is not for sale anymore.
