Within a year of its launch, Yogi, a 197-foot megayacht built by Proteksan Turquoise, sank off Skíros, Greece, in the Aegean Sea. Watch here as the crew of a Hellenic Air Force helicopter approaches the foundering yacht and effects the rescue of the survival-suited crew from her pitching decks and a liferaft. As the yacht settles into the murk in about 300 fathoms, questions have arisen about what happened and why.
