Image result for Fishing boat breaks apart on rocks off Mount MaunganuiA fishing charter boat is breaking up on rocks near Mount Maunganui, after running aground late on Friday night.

The 12-metre vessel is a well-known fishing charter boat in the area, however it’s now being smashed by waves with the front of the boat almost completely destroyed.

It was hoped the ‘Miss Fleur’ would be refloated at high tide on Saturday, but it’s now too badly damaged.
