A yacht owned by Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton has been found at the bottom of a marina.

The veteran singer’s 65-foot ship, named Rendezvous, sank stern-first in Lake Mead on Friday while it was in a slip at Arizona’s Temple Bar marina, according to National Park Service representative Christie Vanover.

The ship sank in about 45 feet of water at the marina, which is on the Arizona side of the Colorado River reservoir, Vanover said.

There were no passengers on the boat at the time of the incident, which took place while Newton and his wife were on vacation outside of the U.S., reports The Associated Press.
