Found this today sitting on the beach at Middle Park as I ordered a coffee.  Perhaps stolen and abandoned allowing to blow into the beach as a southerly as usual has been blowing all weekend.









Or perhaps dragged anchor?

Doesn't look very big, maybe one of those toys from a larger yacht.

A Google search of the boat's registration HY 683 appears to indicate that it was for sale in September -

The link from Google to the seller no longer works. Perhaps it sold?

The tidal range would be 50cm minimum. It’s hard to tell if the boat has a stern drive (inboard/outboard) or a jet drive.
