Vessel drifting after power loss
Douglas lifeboat was called out last night (Thurs) to go to the aid of a broken down motor cruiser.
The alarm was raised just before midnight after the twenty-five foot vessel, with four people on board, lost power just a mile out from Douglas harbour.
The cruiser, which had left Whitehaven earlier in the evening with four people on board, started drifting northwards.
The Sir William Hillary quickly located the vessel and it was safely towed to a berth on the Battery pier visitors' pontoon.
All the occupants were unharmed.
