Tranquillity is a luxury yacht formerly known as Equanimity, constructed by Oceanco in 2014. She can host over 28 guests and over 33 crew members. She is currently owned by Malaysian billionaire Lim Kok Thay.
The interior of Tranquillity was designed by Winch Design and exudes luxury. She features 1 master cabin, 3 VIP cabins (one that is extra special), 3 double cabins and two twin cabins. There is a large indoor lounge and group dining room, as well as a private dining area.
One space that makes Tranquillity extra special is its spa suite, which comes equipped with a sauna, experiential showers, Hammam facilities, plunge pool and massage facilities. There is also a fully equipped balcony gym that doubles as a beach club.
She features all of the luxury trimmings you would expect from a yacht of this quality.
The owner of Tranquillity is Malaysian billionaire Lim Kok Thay. As of 2021, he had a net worth of $2.8 B USD. He is the current executive chairman and CEO of Genting, a casino gaming and resort company. He studied at Harvard business school and the University of London, and is currently married with 3 children.
He owns two private jets and doesn’t own any other superyachts currently. After the boat was seized by the Malaysian government in an embezzlement scandal in 2019, Lim Kok Thay purchased Tranquillity and transformed her into the leisure vessel for hire that she is today.
The tranquillity measures 91 metres (300 ft) in length, with a beam of 14.5 metres (47.6 ft) and a draft of 4 metres (13 ft). She has a maximum speed of 19.5 knots and an average cruising speed of 16 kn.
She is powered by two MTU diesel engines and is faster than other yachts her size, achieving 0.37 kn higher than the average top speed, and an average cruising speed of 0.59 kn above the average of yachts of a similar size.
The draft is impressive considering her size, but she also comes with two Hodgson Tenders that are 10.5m in length giving passengers ease of access to the shore for excursions.
The exterior of the Tranquility was designed by Oceanco, the same company responsible for the build. It features a steel hull that has been strengthened to Ice Class E.
The design features a combination of dark materials complimented by elegant, off white furnishings.
She is home to a fully functioning helipad, a swimming pool, movie theatre, outdoor on-deck jacuzzi, and an on-deck lounging area. The activities aren’t limited to the onboard facilities, however.
For those seeking some adventure, there are the previously mentioned Hodgson tenders, she offers multiple kayaks, Yamaha jet skis, wakeboards, paddleboards, Seabob F5’s, and a trampoline amongst other facilities. The Tranquillity offers guests the chance to relax and play in equal amounts.
