One of the world’s biggest yachts has quietly slipped into Hong Kong, its visit shrouded in secrecy.
The 91.5 metre Equanimity – the 51st largest yacht in the world, according to Boat International magazine – has been linked to Jho Low, the Malaysian financier at the centre of the 1MDB scandal that has rocked the country. There have been speculation, notably in the newsletter Sarawak Report, that the yacht is to be sold. But the purpose of its stay in Hong Kong is unclear. And no one connected to it is willing to talk.
Northrop & Johnson, which is based in Hong Kong and describes itself as a broker for superyachts, declined to comment on its involvement. A sales broker with Northrop & Johnson said the company had a confidentiality agreement with the client, adding: “The client does not want any publicity.”
