Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

please note our attached search-request for SCAT LAGOON 380 S2 "NAMASTE", which was reported stolen from her mooring at anchor in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, US-Virgin Islands between Sunday 27.02.2011 and Thursday 03.03.2011.

For actual details on the stolen yacht, please, also check our website: http://stolenboats.eu/boatdetails_LAGOON_380-1.html

The yacht had apparently some trouble with the engines and might have required service or repairs.

Perhaps the yacht is sailing or moored in your local waters. The yacht's name and appearance is probably changed by now.
Please, keep a lookout and send the search-request to your contacts in the neighborhood.

The underwriters have offered a high reward for information leading to the successful recovery of the yacht.
If you have any information about this stolen boat or can report sightings or maybe circumstances of the theft, please contact us.

Thank you for your help!

Best regards

That's surprising. Certainly will be difficult to track down. Just change the name and any other identifying marks and she'll be sailing around the Virgin Islands as conspicuously as a silver BMW in a waitrose car park.

Received this update by email today - it looks like the thieves just took her around the corner and probably tried to lay low / blend in until the going was good to perhaps go somewhere else..... :

As Fistral G points out above, it would be very difficult to identify that this was a stolen yacht, when there are probably hundreds of almost identical sister ships in existence.
