Stolen Yacht – Happy ending!

Hi there,

My Hunter Horizon 27 “Osprey” has been stolen from my pontoon berth at Arbroath. It has a white hull with a blue sprayhood, and also blue dodgers and sail cover with “Osprey” on them.

The SSR is 31686

The yacht was stolen Friday 21st or this morning, so it could be heading your way

I would appreciate if you could call me on 07757933871 or 07710911887 if it is spotted,


Mike Gray




Hi Ray,

Thanks very much for your email.
With the help of the Montrose lifeboat, and the Marine Police, I was able to take back possession of Osprey. We eventually caught the boat at sea 6 miles off Arbroath.Two people have been arrested, a male with curly dark brown hair and full beard aged 41 and a female aged 51 with straight grey hair. I believe they may be from the Newcastle/ Sunderland area. The male had yachting experience gained in the armed forces, so if they don’t get a custodial sentence they may attempt something similar elsewhere,

Kind regards
