DETAILS: A yacht was stored in the boatyard (locked) for a year. Around September 1st, the boatyard manager informed the owners by email that there had been a break-in on their boat. The thieves may have come from the waterside since the road-side gate is usually locked. It probably required several trips to gather/remove all the items. A police report was made.
