Two arrested after yacht reported stolen from Arbroath marina is seen off Angus coast

Two people have been arrested after a yacht was allegedly stolen from Arbroath marina at the weekend.

The drama unfolded when Montrose and Arbroath lifeboats were called out at 7am on Monday morning just north of Lunan Bay with police also in attendance.

Police at Lunan Bay after the yacht Osprey was spotted offshore.

Montrose lifeboat crew were initially stood down after establishing that no-one was injured, and the vessel was not in distress.

Police kept the yacht under observation from a cliff-top field near Bodin during the morning, but refused to divulge further details about the yacht’s disappearance.

The yacht returns to Arbroath harbour.

The vessel was at anchor south of Montrose before moving early in the afternoon.

Both lifeboats were again scrambled as the vessel began moving again.

A heavy police presence then moved to Arbroath harbour.

A man and a woman were brought in and arrested around 3pm.

The yacht remained out at sea but was due to return to the harbour.

Police are at the scene but saying little about the nature of their investigation.

The vessel, named Osprey, had been berthed at the busy Arbroath marina prior to being reported stolen on Saturday afternoon.

The alleged theft is understood to have been discovered by the boat’s Fife owner when he arrived at the Angus facility, but discovered the vessel missing from its pontoon in the packed port.
