Mentioned that general cargo ship Pioneer Star (IMO 9120047) was reported to have broken in two on June 20th due to bad weather and possible overloading. It sank in position in the Arabian Sea off Oman. The vessel had been en route from Hodeidah, Yemen, to the Suez Canal.

The crew had managed to deploy two life rafts and a lifeboat that was severely damaged. Debris was reported to have been floating everywhere. and a large diesel fuel slick was visible.
At first sight, the yacht crew could see a few castaways in the raft and one clinging to the lifeboat. The rest of them were dispersed in the vicinity, some with life jackets on, some without. A couple was wearing immersion suits.
Plvs Vltra delivery captain Martyn Walker told Boat International that “the ship wasn’t on the radar anymore. It just disappeared”. Plvs Vltra altered course immediately and arrived around 25 minutes later to find “people in the water” and a diesel slick “about a quarter of a mile wide”.
“The boat was completely gone by the time we arrived,” said Walker. “There wasn’t as much debris as I expected”.
The rescue was also attended by the cargo ship Rudolf (IMO 9535591) and took about two and a half hours. Heaving lines were thrown out. and survivors were pulled onto the yacht’s swim platform, while the yacht made its way through the wreckage. Swimmers were picked up from the water. On the owner’s deck, they were treated for shock and inhalation of seawater and diesel before being provided with supplies, clothing, and warm meals. A total of 10 crew members were rescued onto the Plus Ultra and nine onto the Rudolf.
