I'm not sure a single picture is a fair representation. If the engine is now stopped then the transom looks to be the easiest place to recover (just as some people here will use the antiventillation plate as a step or even the powertrim as a lift - on an OFF engine). Even without that the prop on a yacht is usually well forward of the transom (so it washes over the rudder) so whilst it might not be perfect its not like recovering on a small powerboat.
A bit surprised that with presumably loads of manouverable, relatively low freeboard powerboats around the recovery was by yacht.
