    I would have thought that the fall of anything named after such a lovely bloke was inevitable

    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    "The yard said the yacht listed during the "pumping out phase of dry docking" as the yacht was being relaunched"

    Either pumping
    out for maintenance, or pumping IN for relaunching.

    I don't understand the yard's comment

    Dockside walls usually weeep for days after pumpout and these are bone dry.
    If crew were injured this would almost certainly have been a sudden event rather than a gradual one. Hard to imagine continuing to pump either in or out as a vessel took on a list like that.
    There must have been a sudden twang somewhere.
    Shame, as superyachts go this one is unusually tasteful.
