Indeed.

Crash with wooden building after a major breakdown in the engine room, so it seems. The historical building is seriously damaged. Nobody got hurt. Traffic in the Bosphorous was interrupted for hours.

The vessel is "Vitaspirit" (IMO 9231377), and she has photos available here:

Casualty also reported here (in Portuguese):
