Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded and took twenty minutes to douse the flames fed by fuel. Jupiter Police are now investigating the cause of the boat fire at the Square Grouper Boat Ramp in Jupiter.
The battalion chief said other boats near the fully engulfed yacht had to be moved so the fire did not spread.
No one was hurt, according to officials.
