Yacht captain faces drug-smuggling charges

The megayacht Secret Spot is a 106-foot Lazzara vessel with a jacuzzi, a swim platform a deck shower, now moored at a marina in Palm Beach, Fla.

Federal agents say the yacht’s captain smuggled some 620 pounds of cocaine, estimated to be worth between $5 million to $6 million.

“We’re flabbergasted to say the least,” Palm Harbor Marina manager John Smundin told the Palm Beach Post. “It doesn’t represent the types of clients we have here.”
