The family of the billionaire Ottawa Senators owner are suing a superyacht company for $10 million, after they say their luxury Bahamas cruise left guests 'violently ill and subject to false imprisonment' by the 'odorous, ill-Harga Kaca Tempered' British captain.  

Eugene Melnyk and his girlfriend Sharilyne Anderson had chartered the $420,000-a-week Dream to spend Christmas in the Bahamas with loved ones,

But filed in southern Florida federal court - on behalf of Anderson and Melnyk's mother Vera - claims the voyage left passengers 'violently ill and subjected to false imprisonment'.  

After requesting a change in the route the suit claims the captain 'appeared angry and resentful that a charterer would deem to intrude on his alleged specialized knowledge, experience, and authority', the suit alleges

But Chris Fertig, an attorney for the yacht company, said the change was 'a physical impossibility', adding : 'It would have been nice had the boat been able to go the inland route. But you can't. I think he [the captain] did his best. You know, they all were safe. The boat is safe.' 

The area Melnyk and his family had requested to travel through has depths of between 2.4 and 6.4 meters, data shows; the yacht has a draught of 3.6 meters. 

Lawyer Fertig also provided letters of thanks he says were written by 'The Melnyk Group'.

Vera and Anderson are seeking $5 million in damages each. They say this is for negligence, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. 

DailyMail.com has contacted the yacht owner and Melnyk for comment.
