Want to make your Wolf of Wall Street party fantasy come true?
Well, you’re in luck because the Equanimity yacht, formerly owned by Jho Low allegedly using 1MDB-linked money is now available for rent!
But first, make sure you got US$1.25 million (~ RM5 million) to spare lah…
South China Morning Post has reported that Jho Low’s infamous superyacht is now available for rent at only US$1.25 million a week (not including fuel and extra charges).
Formerly the jewel in Jho Low’s ridiculously extravagant collection, the US$250 million superyacht now called Tranquility is moored at the French Riviera, patiently waiting to relive the wild parties of its past.
In case you need convincing, here’s list of little luxuries you can enjoy aboard the 91.5-metre yacht:
“Beach club” with folding platforms at the stern and the
sides that drop down to the water
Upper deck circular jacuzzi with a clear bottom, visible
from the deck below
Interiors decorated in bamboo, marble, gold leaf and wenge
wood from an endangered tree species
9 suites that can accommodate up to 22 guests
200-square foot plunge pool
Two additional Hodgdon tenders (boats)
The yacht was seized by the Malaysian government in its investigation of 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad) and then sold to a subsidiary of Genting Group at a discounted price of US$130 million, half of its purchase price.
Jho Low is still at large for financial fraud, despite a
global manhunt after he went into hiding following the change of Malaysian government
in May 2018.
However, we might be getting closer to capturing the fugitive believed to be the mastermind behind the 1MDB scandal. It was reported yesterday that the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is currently negotiating with authorities of an unnamed country to bring him back to Malaysia.
While the authorities are doing what they can, you could always spend a couple of nights on the yacht to try to get into his mind. Who knows, you might get a clue…
