The ‘Minx’ can be chartered for around £44,000 a week and can sleep 8 guests in four rooms, and there is also room for four crew members.
It operates under a British flag, and is currently up for sale for £3.5 million.
A website for the vessel says it is “designed for entertaining”, adding: ” Her well appointed deck areas provide guests with the space to relax, play, entertain and enjoy their time on board.”
‘Vision’ sails under the flag of Monaco and a n online catalogue appeared to show it was also currently for sale, listed for around £3.6 million.
A source at the broker firm said he had spoken to the vessel’s owner, but described the situation as “too raw” to discuss.
Both boats suffered significant damage, with the nose of Minx broken off and fibreglass seen splintering out from the front of the vessel.
Vision had long scratch marks down the starboard side.
A spokesperson for the Foreign Office said: “Our staff are assisting the family of a British man following his death in France, and are in contact with the local authorities.”
