A yacht that was beached at Son Maties in Palmanova in April is still there. Apparently abandoned and with some damage to the bow, it has been cordoned off by buoys and metal barriers.

After all this time, local residents and businesses have had enough. They believe that the yacht poses a risk to bathers and that it creates a bad image for an important tourist area.

Un yate lleva desde el mes de abril varado y abandonado en la playa de Son Maties.

They add that the yacht has been used by squatters and cannot understand how a municipality with the tourism significance of Calvia can have allowed it to remain where it has been throughout the summer.

The municipality has no jurisdiction over the sea. The sea belongs to the spanish state. If the owner can not recover his or her yacht, it is not easy to make him (or her). Abandoned boats are a big problem as to sell a yacht to someone else, even a scrap dealer, involves very long paperwork,

It is no like just towing away a badly parked vehicle,

John, that sounds WAY too simple - not enough paperwork involved. In other words, it makes too much sense.

What’s the problem? Get a scrap man with a tug boat,he pays to take away and scrap and keeps profit,simple. OR has somebody a different agenda!
