Seven people have been pulled to safety from a yacht by crew members on Azamara Quest off the coast of Croatia.

The 686-passenger Azamara Club Cruises vessel assisted the “distressed” yacht on Monday (September 24).

All seven were brought on board for water and medical treatment near Hvar.

Azamara Quest’s medical team confirmed that all passengers only sustained minor injuries from the incident.

Following the rescue, Stuart Pearce, strategic account manager at Azamara Club Cruises for UK & Ireland, tweeted: “Great job from Azamara Quest crew coming to the rescue of a distressed this afternoon! #QuestToTheRescue.”

Azamara Quest is currently on an eight-day round trip voyage from Venice.

The vessel is scheduled to complete its sailing on Saturday.
