Overdue sailboat spotted south of Oahu, passengers uninjured

A missing 34-foot sailboat that was sailing from Oahu to Lahaina has been found 65 miles south of Oahu early this morning and all four passengers are on board and uninjured, according to the Coast Guard.

A C-130 plane is circling overhead while the Coast Guard cutter Oliver Berry is en route from Sand Island, according to Coast Guard Petty Officer James Shaw.

All four passengers remain on board and no injuries have been reported. The SS Chukahui Kai was spotted at 2:07 a.m. today, Shaw said.

“We did find them,” he said. “A C-130 is watching the boat right now.”

The boat left the Ala Wai Boat Harbor Saturday morning and was expected in Lahaina on Monday.

The double-masted, black-hulled sailboat with red and yellow trim was being moved to Maui to be sold.

The Coast Guard issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast notice to mariners.
