The 300-foot blue-and-white pleasure yacht, built last year, was spotted in Alaska last month by the Unalaska Community Broadcasting outfit. Unalaska is a non-profit organisation that produces the public radio station KUCB, and the community television station Channel 8 in Unalaska, Alaska.

“The Equanimity sailed down from the Arctic Ocean after crossing the Northwest Passage from Greenland, a voyage only recently made possible by a shrinking polar ice cap.”

The yacht, the 39th largest in the world, apparently has “a swimming pool, a gym, a beauty salon and a crew of 28”.

Since then, the vessel has been spotted in Japan.

This is its port history:

Speculation has swirled around who the real owner of the yacht is. One yachting website discusses the ownership issue here.

A super yatch where free flow of expensive alcoholic drinks to the resounding Blue Moon cheers of “Lu Malai-Sai Lang Gong Tua Tai” is the norm?
Can’t blame the yatch but those who are still intoxicated by Snake Oil Seller’s slippery talk like “Lu China Lang bo pendataaaaang!”
