HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - A pricey boat that was taken by a group of crooks outside of a Hialeah home has been found, but not in ideal condition.

Surveillance video captured the men taking the vessel from Yuniel Lopez’s home along East 60th Street, near Fifth Avenue, Thursday morning.

The 31-foot vessel was found later that night abandoned and stripped of gear.

Lopez said a 7News viewer spotted the boat and reached out to her.

The boat’s owners said it was valued at more than $90,000 after they had it redone.

The vessel was hard to miss, with red letters that read “FOUNTAIN” on both sides.

Parts taken from the boat included its engines.

“The GPS system, everything is gone. The motors are like $30,000, and you’re talking about the GPS around $12,000,” said Lopez, “plus you can see they took the lights, so it’s a lot to do.”

If you have any information on the boat thieves’ whereabouts, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
