Death aboard Manx registered yacht in Caribbean

Incident under investigation by UK MAIB

The death of the chief engineer on board an Isle of Man registered yacht is under investigation on behalf of the Isle of Man Ship Registry.

The incident occurred while the vessel, Baton Rouge, was alongside at Falmouth Harbour on the Caribbean island of Antigua on 23 February.

No further information has been released by the UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

The man has been named by a number of UK and international publications as 47-year-old father of two Roy Temme from Southampton.

He reportedly entered the vessel's engine room area during a power outage and was electrocuted.

A team of inspectors from the UK MAIB was flown to the scene to gather evidence and examine the vessel.

The superyacht is a 205ft charter vessel operated by management firm Burgess.

More than £10,000 has been raised so far for the family of Mr Temme - you can find out more HERE.
