    Cab to auction boat seized in €440m west Cork drug raid

    February 18, 2010

    The 35-foot catamaran Lucky Day seized in the €440 million west Cork drug haul on 2 July 2007 is to be auctioned by the Criminal Assets Bureau next month.

    Two rigid inflatables, four outboard engines, two trailers and three 4×4 vehicles used in the botched attempt to smuggle cocaine are also being sold on behalf of the Criminal Assets Bureau by Cork auctioneer Dominic J Daly on March 23rd.

    The 13-year-old catamaran was previously maintained by Austrian owners. It is in “very good condition” at a berth in La Coruna, Spain, according to Mr Daly.

    It was bought for $132,000 over the internet and was described as “in flawless condition” when advertised, with two forward staterooms, one in each hull, queen-size beds in both, two large “heads” or toilets and eight berths in all.

    The Spanish authorities had a good rummage inside the boat.  Here is the main saloon in April 2009.  Supposedly tidied up by now.
