“I whined about it”: this symbol of Bernard Tapie’s prosperous years which sank


On Sunday February 21, the authorities announced that the Phocéa, which belonged to Bernard Tapie, had caught fire off Malaysia and sank. A big blow for the businessman.

It’s a heartbreak for Bernard Tapie. On Sunday February 21, Malaysian authorities reported that the Phocéa, a nearly 75-meter sailboat that has belonged to many great fortunes, sank in the morning of Friday February 19 near the tourist island of Langkawi, after a terrible fire occurred the day before.The fire caused damage to the hull which may have sunk the yacht “, said an official, reports France Info. Fortunately, the damage was only material, seven crew members having been saved by the emergency services. An investigation was also opened to determine the causes of this fire.

“I cried so much it’s sad”, also deplored Bernard Tapie near Free Midi, he who was the owner of the Phocéa between the 1980s and the 1990s. In 1997, when the businessman went bankrupt, the yacht was bought by Mona Ayoub for 36.5 million francs (7.5 million euros at the current price), before being jointly owned by Xavier Niel. BFMTV specifies that the current owner of the sailboat is unknown, this machine having been built in 1976 in Toulon for the navigator Alain Colas.

Bernard Tapie confides more than ever about his cancer

The memory of a prosperous time now extinguished for Bernard Tapie, who is fighting more than ever against cancer diagnosed in 2017, and who has “very seriously progressed”, reported his lawyer last October. However, the businessman would not be at the worst as his son clarified last January, after having sent him a tender message for his 78 years. “He’s trying to desecrate the term cancer. He’s trying to use his cancer so that those who have had one are no longer ashamed to talk about it.”, had specified Stéphane Tapie.
