Equanimity Yacht for sale

Makeup mogul and billionaire Kylie Jenner celebrated her 22nd
birthday on August 10th, and she spared no expense to do it in
style.

According to
Robb Report
, Jenner chartered a 300-foot superyacht called
Tranquility that costs €1.1 million (or just over $1.2 million)
per week. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently
cruising through the Mediterranean with friends and family.

As expected, the Kylie
Cosmetics
founder has been sharing plenty of glamorous photos
of herself on social media, but none showing off much of the
luxurious yacht itself.

Here’s a closer look at Tranquility, and more about the yacht’s
surprisingly sketchy history.

tour of the Mediterranean with friends and family.

is reportedly worth $250 million.

Chartering the superyacht costs €1.1 million (or over $1.2
million) per week — which is a lot, but not all that much for the
billionaire makeup mogul.

According to charter company Camper & Nicholsons, the
Tranquility was built by the Oceanco shipyard in the Netherlands
and set sail back in 2014. It was awarded “Yacht of the Year Over
82 Meters” at that year’s World Superyacht Awards.

The interior was designed by Andrew Winch, an internationally
renowned English yacht designer.

The yacht features a number of over-the-top amenities, including a
beach club, swimming pool, plunge pool, experiential showers, and a
spa with a sauna, a Turkish bath, and a massage room.

Tranquility’s master suite and nine additional guest cabins can
accommodate as many as 22 guests.

There’s also plenty of room for the 31-person crew it takes to man
this massive vessel.

Pre-Jenner birthday extravaganza, the yacht had a surprisingly
dramatic history. Per Robb Report, Tranquility was, in its former
life, called Equanimity — one of the assets involved in a major
money laundering and fraud scandal in Malaysia.

Equanimity was seized by the Malaysian government in August 2018.

The yacht was, at that time, owned by a fugitive banker named Low
Taek Jho.

The Malaysian government put the recovered superyacht up for sale
shortly after to recover some of the money Low and others stand
accused of stealing from 1Malaysia Development Berhad, the
now-dissolved Malaysian strategic development company that was once
wholly owned by the country’s Minister of Finance. Equanimity was
eventually sold for $125 million — half its original price.

Low is currently still a fugitive, sought by the government
authorities of Malaysia, Singapore, and the US in connection with
the scandal.

Jenner and Tranquility, meanwhile, are somewhere near Genoa en
route to Saint Tropez at last check, per Marine Traffic.
