The 24 meter long passenger ship Gret Palucca became disabled and allided with a jetty at List upon Sylt, Germany. The passenger ship with 52 passengers was entering port when it suffered engine failure. Unable to slow down, the Gret Palucca struck the jetty. Three passengers and one crewman were slightly injured and were later taken to hospital. A DGzRS lifeboat came to the aid of the disabled Gret Palucca and assisted it to berth at a nearby quay. The Gret Palucca sustained significant damage to its bow and the vessel was pulled from service for repairs at a shipyard. No pollution was reported.
