The 68-foot Irvmiren was headed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Nantucket, Massachusetts, when it began taking on water about 25 miles from Cape May on Wednesday night.

A Coast Guard helicopter and rescue boat arrived on the scene. A rescue swimmer and a pump were lowered to the boat in seas that were breaking over the vessel.

When the boat failed to stem the water, the six people were transferred to the rescue boat and taken to the Coast Guard station in Cape May early Thursday.
