Sept. 28 -- It was a case of déjà vu on Saturday (September 22) when guests, employees and management watched as a Four Seasons Resort passenger transport vessel sank to the bottom of the ocean for a second time.

Less than three weeks prior, on the morning of September 3 the newer and smaller of three boats used to transport the Resort’s passengers between St Kitts and Nevis sank. The newest addition to the Resort’s fleet the ‘Nevisian Dream’ was launched earlier this year.

The 20-passenger vessel can zip across the Narrows from St. Kitts to Nevis in 20 minutes. Once onboard, guests were offered chilled lemongrass scented towels, healthy snacks, specialty cocktails and sparkling wines during the journey across the narrows.

The boat was said to have last sailed the day before with no problems. It was retrieved the following day from the sea bed. The Observer could not uncover what damages the boat sustained or how the boat got to the bottom of the ocean.

On Saturday morning the larger passenger boatIsland Express III suffered the same fate. The Observer understands that this vessel went down much faster than the first. The boat was pulled from the water on Wednesday (September 26).

No one was aboard either of the boats when they sank.

The Observer attempted to contact the Public Relations Officer for the hotel Tara McIntyre for further information, but was unsuccessful.
