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.
S/Y Mirabella V: Lives lost Zero
M/S Herald of free enterprise: Lives lost 193
OPP Piper Alpha: Lives lost 167
M/T Braer: Lives lost Zero
