Boat, stolen from Key Largo, recovered in Mexico

A yacht, stolen from a Key Largo marina in October, was recovered recently in Mexico. Investigations into its theft are continuing.

The 55 foot Sedan  Bridge Sea Ray, valued at $800,000, was taken from Marina Del Mar on October 13th. Called the “Cynthia Marie”, it belonged to a man from Miami Beach. He said he brought the boat to the keys and left it at the marina intending to return later in the week with his family for a weekend stay. He said he gave no one permission to take it.

According to detectives working the case, the company who insured the vessel recovered it somewhere in Mexico and returned it to the United States where it is currently being stored at the U.S. Coast Guard station in Key West; investigations into the boat’s theft are continuing.

  1. My name is Richard Hagen retired Broward County Sheriff Marine Deputy, now in the private sector of investigations of marine related cases. I was able to locate this vessel through the contact I have overseas. I responded to the location of vessel which was already out of the water and being repainted and hull numbers changed. We were able to capture one suspect changing the numbers. I have been actively investigating such cases throughout the foreign countries.
