The Equanimity is perhaps the second most famous vessel in the ocean now (after the RMS Titanic which sank in 1912) no thanks to Jho Low.

The ultra-luxurious yacht was believed to have been bought using the money connected to 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and once the new Malaysian government came into power, the Equanimity was successfully brought back to our shores on 7 August 2018.

We’re sure you’ve heard a lot about this legendary boat, so here are 5 interesting facts about the Equanimity that you should know!

 

1. The yacht costs approximately RM1 billion

The yacht was built by a company called Oceanco in the Netherlands and it was delivered to its owner (you know who) in 2014.

With two 482-horsepower diesel engines strapped on the vessel, the Equanimity can go up to 16 knots and reach a maximum speed of 19 knots.

Its interior design uses unique materials such as wenge wood, bamboo, marble, and gold leaf to accentuate the yacht’s Asian-inspired theme.

 

2. It’s the 54th largest yacht in the world

…which explains why there are 9 rooms on the yacht!

The cabin configuration comprises 1 Master room, 4 VIP staterooms, and 4 double cabins. So, if you’re ever invited to any of Jho Low’s parties on the yacht, you can comfortably spend the night, along with 17 other guests!

It was also reported that the vessel can easily accommodate 26 guests and 30 crew at one time, which brings the number of people that can fit into the boat to 56 people (or 56 police officers)!

3. One word — “Baller”

What we mean here is that the yacht was designed to give the owner and guests the ultimate luxurious experience while out at sea, so they’re pampered with a huge selection of onboard entertainment and recreational facilities.

Here’s the list of the Equanimity’s onboard facilities.

  • Jacuzzi
  • Sauna
  • Helicopter landing pad
  • Swimming pool, swimming platform
  • Beach club
  • Beauty salon
  • Gym
  • Spa
  • Elevator
  • Movie theatre
  • Tender garage
  • Turkish bath
  • Steam room
  • Owner’s study
  • Private hot tub

 

4. It’s almost twice as long as the one in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street

Remember Jordan Belfort’s yacht in the movie? Yeap, the one in the background.

In 1961, the boat was originally built for Coco Chanel measuring at 121 foot (approx. 36 meters) and it was named Big Eagle. Jordan bought over the boat in the 70s and made some modifications to it which added an extra 46 foot (approx. 14 meters) to the vessel.

The yacht ended up measuring at 167 feett (approx. 50 meters), but it still couldn’t beat Jho Low’s superyacht which measures at 300 feet (approx. 91 meters).

Fun fact: Jordan’s yacht was actually named The Nadine in real life, not Naomi. 

 

5. The Equanimity is an award-winning superyacht

In 2014, the vessel was crowned the WINNER for:

  • the Finest New Yacht category in Monaco Yacht Show Awards 2014
  • the Best Yacht of the Year (over 82m) in World Yachts Trophies 2014

 

Malaysia’s Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said the government plans to sell this vessel once all the relevant paperwork is settled. Meanwhile, part of the vessel, if not whole, may be opened to members of the public for viewing.
