Watch: Treasure Queen 2 sinks in Chaguaramas, seafarers warned

Mariners are being urged to exercise extreme caution as the MV Treasure Queen II is almost fully submerged in the waters in the Chaguaramas area near Pier II.

The warning comes from Director of Maritime Services at the Maritime Services Division of the Ministry of Works and Transport, Ronald Alfred.

According to a statement issued on Thursday, the vessel is at a latitude of 10 – 41.32 North and a longitude of 061 – 36.39 West.

In May, photos of the party boat went viral on social media showing the vessel leaning to one side as it appeared to have taken on water.

The boat was subsequently repaired only to sink four months later.
