Near Connect with for $2,000,000+ Yacht in Dana Point Harbor Tsunami





This two million plus yacht just about wipes out a row of boats and ended up into the harbor wall. Let us just say this dude needed a new pair of undershorts after this unwise attempt to enter the harbor during an lively tsunami warning…

  1. If that dude owned a nordhavn he would know they were playing around for kicks.

  4. That was an awesome job of skippering. The current was more than enough to do the boat. It was the quick thinking of the skipper that saved the yacht and its passengers. 👍

  7. Active Tsunami warning… water flow behaving well beyond normal expectations… and these guys are just standing on the seashore! They should be moving to high ground not standing there waiting to become victims and mocking the wayward boat captain!

  10. Should have never put himself in that position, pretty good job getting out of it, a little late on the throttles in the end IMO. Amazing power to be able to back up on that current, impressive propulsion package.

  12. Wow, Dave. You really should stop the drinking there buddy. This yacht never came close to wiping out anything and was a good 25 feet from the rocks. Get a life you loser!

  15. Was the manager of the marina just to the right (west) of this at the time. About a year or so earlier there was another tsunami generated by the Chilean EQ. For that one we were somewhat unprepared and I was on the docks when the surge hit. No damage or threat to life but in the manner of abt 5 min it when from normal calm harbor waters to the water running like a river churning up mud. Heard from a boater that the sea level increased 12+ inches in 5 min. For the Japan EQ (one in the video) we were better prepared notifying all the liveaboard boaters, placing notices on all the dock gates etc. There were two foul ups though 1) a lot of boats like this Nordhavn took to open water where it is safer, however there wasnt good communication on when to return – resulting in a couple boats like this one trying to come in before it was safe. In the defense of the authorities the surge continued off and on for many hours (6-8) so no one really knew when it was over and this was very diff than the earlier Chilean tsunami. 2) All roads into the harbor were shut down by the authorities, but the local businesses raised hell about the loss of business so the authorities reopened the roads earlier that was probably prudent. However had they not, this video wouldnt have been made. I fondly recall the event when my son and I responded and posted notices and called folks…in the middle of the night prior…hours before the tsunami was due. Interesting that in 40 years at the harbor there were only two such tsunami events roughly 12 months or so apart.

  17. Spring ebbtide in San Juans wife's watch, allowed us to get directly upflow of visible rocks in our sailboat with only MD2B Volvo. Spent 30 minutes full throttle DIRECTLY into current. SLOWLY inched to port holding distance off till well cleared.
    Confident any other method and we would have lost our home.

  18. Everyone keeps saying tsunami but why are people standing around filming when there is a tsunami coming??? Are we sure it wasn't just a cruise ship going out to sea creating the current?

  24. the guy's an idiot man when is first started he had to just go hard to starboard or hard to port and full throttle and then when he got sucked into what he had to be at for reverse but what the f*** was you doing?

  25. As a small boat coxswain in the Coast Guard, they train us to plan waaay ahead of the game and determine where you want to be….. especially in strong currents like that. He did good though…. why?… because he didn't park the boat on the rocks! 😊
