The boating community has been alerted to a recent theft from a boat at Dun Laoghaire marina. Boaters have been asked to keep an eye out for 'suspicious characters purveying marine equipment.

It is understood a 54ft yacht was broken into on Dun Laoghaire marina at some stage on Sunday 3rd or Monday 4th. The person(s) in question took a number of items, including 6in. and 12in. Navman Plotters, 2 Icom Handheld VHF's, power and hand tools, a 10 inch lcd Monitor, Helly Hansen oilskins, safety equipment, a marine pc and possibly other items that have just not been noticed missing yet.
Obviously the thief(s) in question knew what they were doing, and it has been described as a "slick and thorough job".

If anyone has any information about this incident, please contact Dun Laoghaire Garda Station: tel; 01 666 5000
