  • PeeJay V, off Whakatane, New Zealand, Jan 2016

    19 January 2016, the PeeJay V caught fire just off the Whakatane bar, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.

    Reports say that 60 people onboard - 53 passengers and seven crew - were rescued safely after the tourist vessel caught fire about a kilometre off shore, and eventually sank.

    No loss of life has been reported. Two were taken to hospital "with injuries" - one discharged the same day.

    From survivor reports, it would appear to be an engine room fire that spread to the rest of the vessel.
