A woman who was raped on a luxury yacht docked in Fort Lauderdale was awarded nearly $70.6 million in damages Monday after she sued the yacht’s owner.

The rape took place on board the Endless Summer, a 130-foot vessel that was docked at Universal Marine Center, 2700 SW 25th Terrace in Fort Lauderdale, on Feb. 25, 2015.

The woman told police that she worked as a stewardess for the company that owned the yacht, Island Girl Ltd.

Rafael Dowgwillowicz-Nowicki was a deckhand, according to the lawsuit. The only other person on board was the yacht’s captain, Kurt Comececk.

Dowgwillowicz-Nowicki was arrested and charged with four counts of sexual battery after the woman reported he entered her cabin drunk and forced her to have sex with him, threatening to kill her if she did not go along with it. He pleaded guilty in December 2016 and served a two-year sentence. By then he had already served most of his sentence.

He was later deported to Poland

The lawsuit alleged that Island Girl, a limited liability corporation owned by Michael Poole, of Maryland, failed to provide proper security for the victim. The victim, the captain and Dowgwillowicz-Nowicki were required to stay on board the Endless Summer overnight. She was not issued a walkie-talkie to alert anyone on board that something was wrong, according to the lawsuit.

“She was screaming for her life at the top of her lungs,” said her lawyer, Brad Edwards of the Edwards Pottinger law firm in Fort Lauderdale. “She was raped for over an hour before she escaped and got the captain’s attention.”

The jury awarded the woman $70,000 in lost wages, $4.2 million in lost future earnings and $66 million for pain and suffering. She was also awarded $290,050 in past and future medical expenses.

The victim is now 23 and, while pleased with the outcome of the trial, remains traumatized by the rape, her lawyer said.

“She sleeps with the lights on and a machete and baseball bat at her side,” he said. “This is not something she’s going to get over anytime soon.”

Michael Pennekamp, the attorney representing Island Girl, could not be reached for comment Tuesday despite two messages left at his office. Further information about the company and its owner were not available Tuesday.

The yacht, Endless Summer, is registered in the Marshall Islands. It is now berthed at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale.
