- Yachtfinders Global has sold a lot of Motor Yachts from Aberdeen Marina

A fire ripped through a Hong Kong typhoon shelter on Sunday, sinking 20 boats, damaging a dozen more, and leaving victims counting the cost of a night when only quick thinking saved lives.

A boy reporting feeling unwell was sent to Ruttonjee Hospital and more than 30 boats in total were damaged or destroyed as the fire raged in the early hours of Sunday.
