Waow liveaboard on Wetpixel

There is a video circulating that purports to show the Indonesian liveaboard Waow on fire and burning to the waterline. Early reports suggest that crew and passengers are all safe and that the fire originated in the vessel’s engine room. UPDATE: The company has confirmed that the vessel has sunk and is lost.

We hope that all involved in this harrowing ordeal are safe and sound. We have reached out to the Waow and when we get confirmation about the reports, will post them here too.
