I erred. It was M/Y Nadine, not M/V Nadine, but she did sink. She got caught in a Mistral between Sardinia and France and sank a year or two after we were on her. Her story is in a book called Megayachts.
She was called Coco Chanel for a while, when she was owned by the designer of the same name. She was bought later by Bernie Little of Miss Budweiser and Big Eagle fame and christened Big Eagle. He later sold her and bought his next yacht, christening that one Big Eagle (which was featured in the movie Striptease as Big Sugar). He still held an interest in Nadine, which was christened such by the new owner (Jordan Belfort of stock price manipulation and securities fraud infamy), whose wife was named Nadine.
The M/Y Nadine spent her winters in the Caribbean and her summers in the Mediterranean. This harbor is on the very same island where customs agents responsible for patrolling the path of Air Force One for President WJ Clinton were seriously injured in an accident. IIRC, one died later.
