Currently located in Malaysia, the highly-disputed future of the 91.5-metre superyacht Equanimity seems to be one step closer to being finalised after the High Court of Malaya has appointed Burgess as central agents in assisting with the sale of the 2014-built Oceanco motor yacht. Photo: Burgess
A judicial sales process will be followed to determine the fate of the vessel. Sealed bids that have been submitted by qualified buyers will be opened by the Sheriff of the High Court of Malaya in November/December 2018. “In accordance with Admiralty law,” explains Burgess, “the judicial sale will provide the buyer with an internationally recognised ownership title free of mortgage, attachment and all encumbrances.”
Delivered to her original owners in 2014, Equanimity is one of the largest yachts to be completed by the Dutch yard. She has become known for being the first superyacht designed and built to be fully Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) compliant. Oceanco’s Monaco-based in-house design department created a chic, clean modern profile. Winch Design had the task of creating her oriental-inspired interior. Propelled by twin MTU 20V 4000 M73L engines, Equanimity is able to reach a top speed in excess of 20 knots.
