The yacht is believed to have contained 300 kilos of hashish and the incident took place in international waters close to Melilla.
Whilst the Spanish authorities tailed the perpetrators on water, an Italian helicopter filmed the chase from above.
After crashing into the yacht, officers boarded the boat and were met by a series of punches and shoves from the drug traffickers.
The yacht used by the traffickers flies a Spanish flag, is registered in Melilla, and had its registration numbers deliberately removed.
