Casualty Reports & Public Enquiries

Links are provided below to some interesting casualty reports relating to vessels both commercial and leisure over the last 25 years.  I have also included the public enquiry report into the Piper Alph disaster of 1988. Though Piper Alpha was an Offshore Installation, as opposed to a ship, it makes for very interesting reading.

The casualty report of the MV Braer makes for very interesting reading as well as it is a text book example of a series of unremarkable events, that when combined, led to a disaster. The herald of free enterprise is another good example of the anatomy of a disaster so included below.

In the yachting sector, Kibo, Milly and Mirabella V are all worthy of reading.
