$4 million yacht pulled from bottom of Haverstraw Marina

Posted: Updated:

Crews removed a $4 million yacht from the bottom of the Haverstraw Marina today that caught fire and sunk last week.

With careful precision, crane operators lifted what's left of the 85-ton yacht.

Haverstraw police say the multimillion-dollar ship was for sale and that they have not ruled out arson. They say the wreckage needs to dry out before a forensic inspection can be performed by detectives and the county arson unit.

Two other boats were badly damaged in the fire and one of them also sunk.

Police say they are unsure of how long the investigation will take to be completed.
