 The GBP4million super yacht Princess 95 Queen Anna has been destroyed after it went up in flames in Turkey.

 
The 90-foot superyacht yatch was completely gutted by the blaze in Ege Saray marina in Fethiye on Thursday.
 
Smoke then completely engulfed the vessel and there were fears the flames could spread to other luxury yachts docked in the marina. 
 
The yacht is  owned by a wealthy Russian businessman, who had docked it in the Turkish resort of Mugla. The semi-custom superyachts series was launched in 2009, and has a master suite, VIP and two twin rooms. 
 
Authorities revealed that the ship's captain Vladimir Lopata, was taken to hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation. 
 
The dramatic fire is the second major yacht fire that’s been reported in Turkey this month, and follows a fire in Marmaris in early January that damaged the well-known superyachts The One and Barbie.
