May 31, 2017 Florida Boat Accident Law

On Saturday at about 10:30 p.m. a 31-foot catamaran operated by Max Irvine, 36, collided into a 22-foot Twin Vee Center console boat operated by Andre Neves, 37. The two boat operators were friends and had agreed to meet at Bokamper’s Sports Bar & Grill in Fort Lauderdale. According to witnesses, the catamaran was following the Twin Vee at a speed of 40 to 50 mph and it came up behind the Twin Vee, cut from right to left and took out the Twin Vee.  It appears that the Twin Vee was idling as it was approaching the sports bar.  Per rescue crews, the catamaran straddled the Twin Vee.
