The 80-metre-long floating lab was discovered on Friday in the Dutch municipality of Moerdijk, and was harbouring chemicals used to manufacture crystal meth.

More than 300 litres of methamphetamine oil were seized, and a 40-foot container filled with 10,000 litres of drug waste and other chemicals for methamphetamine production was also found.

According to police, the ship was "probably sabotaged" by a remotely-operated pump to partially sink the vessel as a means to destroy evidence.

Investigators were forced to evacuate the vessel as quickly as possible, taking as much evidence and goods with them as possible.

"Fortunately, many traces and valuables had already been secured," a police statement said.

Following the sinking effort, investigators were able to complete their operation by afternoon on Sunday, before towing the boat to a separate location.

One officer suffering with "respiratory problems" at the scene was taken to hospital shortly after the discovery, but was later confirmed to be in a "good" condition.

An area around the boat was cordoned off due to the "release of chemical air".

Four arrests have so far been made, including the vessel's 65-year-old captain from the Dutch city of Breda, and three Mexican nationals, aged 23, 26 and 37.
