Investigation into the grounding of Southern Bay Rose

Produced by the Economic Development (Department for the Economy)
Authored by Jersey Harbours and published on 28 Feb 2014
Prepared internally, no external cost


​​On 25 June 2013, the domestic passenger vessel Southern Bay Rose ran aground in Belcroute Bay whilst on an excursion with 41 passengers on board.

No injury was caused to any passenger or crew, and the vessel was refloated without damage. 

However, because a grounding is, by nature, a serious incident with the potential for injury or damage, the Harbour Master was requested to carry out an investigation and make a report to the Minister of Economic Development.

The purpose of such reports is to aid the prevention of future accidents through determining causes and circumstances. It isn't intended to lay blame or to be used in judicial proceedings. 

The report is now complete and follow-up actions have been taken.
