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:
