The superyacht Paradise is reported to have sunk in Port d'Andratx, Mallorca in strong gales and large swells. Another yacht also fell victim to the weather

Two luxury yachts have sunk after a storm hit Port d’Andratx in Mallorca over the weekend.

The local publication, Diario De Mallorca, is reporting that strong winds and swell caused the 34-metre Paradise and another smaller, unnamed yacht to repeatedly hit the side of the dock.

The hulls of both boats suffered major damage and they began sinking.
