What to we think happen to the 'ouzo' yacht in the solent?

Was it hit by a ferry or a tanker?

Our thoughts should be with the families of the three men.

Indeed. However all three bodies were recovered from south of the IoW, which is not the Solent.

My thoughts are with their Families and Friends too

It seems odd, Has the boat or parts of the boat been found?
Were they reported missing? Is there a report anywhere, other than the scant details braodcast  on the news?

The latest theory seems to be that the boat was hit by the P&O ferry "Pride of Bilbao". If it was I can understand why they weren't able to get a distress signal away, but it still seems a bit odd that they havn't found any trace of the boat, despite having a minesweeper out there doing a sonar search.
