The 40 metre/ £30million super yacht MYSONG http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2773844  belonging to an Italian billionaire fell off a cargo ship Brattinsborg in the Mediterranean.

It had been named Best Yacht at the "World Superyacht Awards" and set a speed record during 2018 Royal Ocean Racing Club Transatlantic Race.

Is it normal for the yacht's crew to be responsible for the lashing as deck cargo, rather than the ship's crew?

Well David.

Usually, and I assume it was done as it is almost standard nowadays, these cargoes are carried "on Deck" at shippers risk. That means that anything what happens to the cargo , the carrier (the ship) is not responsible, unless it is gross neglect from their side. Cargoes are further lashed/secured under the observation of the ships command and by surveyors from shore hired by the shipper and/or receiver, special when it comes to expensive cargoes like such a yacht. Once finished loading and securing/lashing the surveyors will issue a report where they confirm that it was done properly and according to standards internationally accepted and recommended. Vessels usually have a lashing book manual, where it is outlined how to lash different things, but usually it is kept to standard cargoes what the vessel is supposed to carry. In this case, that the yacht crew did the job most probably special agreements were met to do so, but I am also in that case pretty sure that cargo surveyors from the insurance/shipper side were also present. Who in the end is responsible depends why it fall over board. That can be a dicey process,but usually it is figured out between insurances !!!!

The initial assessment by the CEO of Peters and May, the company has been transporting yachts for 40 years.  He states "However, the primary assessment is that the yacht’s cradle (owned and provided by the yacht, warrantied by the yacht for sea transport and assembled by the yacht’s crew) collapsed during the voyage from Palma to Genoa and subsequently resulted in the loss of My Song overboard.
"I will add that this is the initial assessment and is subject to confirmation in due course."

The wreck has been recovered and is now ashore at the STP yard in Palma de Mallorca:

Looks like a CTL to me, but this is yachting, so probably someone will buy the wreck and repair it.
