Passersby spotted the yachts mast sticking out from above the waves.

The chief of Hat Noppharat Thara- Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, Worapot Lomli said he received word about the sunken vessel and ordered officers to investigate.

The yacht is believed to belong to a local business and was anchored on Sunday night before sinking in roughly 5-meter-deep water yesterday.

National Park Officers have placed buoys around the sunken yacht to prevent other boats in the area from colliding with it.

Park officials have contacted the boat’s owner to order it to be removed as it poses a potential hazard for other vessels in the area.
