Posted 15 May 2019 by Gold FM in Emergency Services - Police, Fire, Civil Defence

The death of a man whose body was found on a yacht anchored near Panepane Point off Matakana Island on Monday afternoon is not being treated as suspicious.

Police and the harbourmaster responded when a boatie reported the yacht’s engine had been running on the anchored yacht for some time.

The man, believed to be in his 60s, was found on the yacht’s deck shortly afterwards. His death has been referred to the coroner.
