A 3 million baht speedboat dry-docked for more than a year was destroyed by fire in an incident police are still investigating.

Firefighters took about 30 minutes to put out the flames at the NPSK Marine Boatyard in South Pattaya Oct. 2.

Boatyard owner Sannon Klittiemmek said the vessel had been stored there by one of her Bangkok friends for more than a year.
