Owned by the Ark of Noah Foundation, the vessel was intended to cross the Atlantic to Rio de Janeiro for the Summer Olympic Games.

No animals were onboard during the collision.

Story via Coverage Mail:

The crash occurred in Oslo, Norway, Friday. A military patrol boat and the 230-foot long replica created by Dutch carpenter Johan Huibers, who reportedly used the Bible’s measurements, were damaged.
