Can't really tell the make and model of it since many are copying each other to certain extents.

The extremely short blurb said that no one was hurt. Just hoping that it isn't someone's we know around here.

That's not a good start to the summer. At least they got the tow vehicle unhooked. How long should I run my blower?

That boat may have been sitting up over the off season......and accumulated fuel/oil in the bilge? or had a bad fuel fill hose ?

Looks like a new MC, tower in the down position? I think it looks like a 55

Does the fire suppression system not work if it's not started and in the water? We really need more information on this. Very sad and scary.

Second that, the slope and taper of the bow. Almost looks like it has a power tower.

Im surprised there hasnt been a report or statement from the owner of the boat. Perhaps the fire was 100% preventable and not accidental.

May have been a post party accident.........
