Classic yacht Xoanon damaged in hit-and-run on Lymington River
A classic yacht has been damaged in a hit-and-run incident on a Hampshire river.
The wooden-built Xoanon was moored on the Lymington River when it was hit by another vessel, leaving it needing repairs costing an estimated £1,000.
Damage was caused to part of the transom - the surface that forms the stern of a vessel.
The rubbing strake, a strip of planking that runs along the side, was also affected.
Blue paint, thought to have come from the other vessel, was left on the side of the Xoanon.
PC Jason Eastwood said: “Police have classed this as an incident of criminal damage. The skipper of the offending vessel failed to leave a note or other information about how to make contact.”
The incident occurred between the Royal Lymington Yacht Club and the wave screen.
