What Does The Word Equanimity Mean?
The yacht was originally named Equanimity. The meaning of the word can be described as ‘a mental calmness, even in a difficult situation’.
Equanimity is a state of psychological stability. And composure which is undisturbed by experience of / or exposure to emotions or pain. Or other phenomena that may cause others to lose the balance of their mind.
In Latin: it is written as æquanimitas. It is translated as: having an even mind. Aequus means even level. Animus means mind or soul.

Her Original Owner
SuperYachtFan received two different messages. One stated that Do Won Chang is the owner of the yacht. And another stating that Malaysian billionaire Jho Low is the owner of the yacht.
Several sources in the yachting industry do mention that the owner of Equanimity has Chinese roots. And Mr. Jho Low’s grandfather was born in China. This makes him a possible owner of the yacht.
In June 2017 this info was confirmed in a USA criminal court case.

Seized by Indonesian Government
In February 2018 the yacht was seized by the Indonesian government. This was part of a multi-billion dollar corruption investigation. It was linked to the Malaysian state fund 1MDB. The yacht was in Benoa Bay, near the Indonesian island of #Bali.
Handover to Malaysia
We were told that Equanimity left Bali. After many months being moored outside the main harbour. She was en route to Batam.
Other media reported that Indonesia agreed to hand over the yacht to Malaysia. In an emailed statement, a spokesman for Low’s legal team said the handing over of the mega yacht to Malaysia was illegal. And that it was politically motivated.
The High Court of Malaya appointed Burgess Yachts as Central Agents for the sale of the yacht.
The court in Malaysia ruled last week that the sale should take place. The aim was to recoup funds misappropriated from a state development fund.
The High Court also chose an appraiser to determine the yacht’s value. The sale process will be by sealed bids, following steps outlined by the court.
In April 2019 is was announced that the yacht was purchased by the Genting Group. The price was reportedly US$ 125 million. Genting is active in leisure and hospitality and owns many resorts. The group is headed by Lim Kok Thay. His father founded Genting. Her new owner changed the name of the yacht into Tranquility.
