Tranquility, the 300-foot superyacht Kylie Jenner chartered for her 22nd birthday, is now for sale, with an asking price of $200 million, yachting company Camper & Nicholsons told Business Insider.

Jenner originally rented the yacht in August; according to the charter listing, Tranquility rents for €1.1 million (or just over $1.2 million) per week. Page Six reported in August that the yacht was worth at least $250 million.

Before its association with Jenner’s luxurious birthday party, the yacht was involved in a massive 2018 money laundering and fraud scandal in Malaysia, in which it was seized and sold off by the Malaysian government to recover funds.

Fast forwarding a year later, the yacht was making headlines again, but this time as the vessel that billionaire Jenner cruised on through the Mediterranean.

The Tranquility was built by the Oceanco shipyard in the Netherlands and set sail back in 2014. It was awarded “Yacht of the Year Over 82 Meters” at that year’s World Superyacht Awards.

Pre-Jenner birthday extravaganza, the yacht had a surprisingly dramatic history. Per Robb Report, Tranquility was, in its former life, called Equanimity — one of the assets involved in a major money laundering and fraud scandal in Malaysia.

Equanimity was seized by the Malaysian government in August 2018.

The yacht was, at that time, owned by a fugitive banker named Low Taek Jho (often called Jho Low).

The Malaysian government put the recovered superyacht up for sale shortly after to recover some of the money Low and others stand accused of stealing from 1Malaysia Development Berhad, the now-dissolved Malaysian strategic development company that was once wholly owned by the country’s Minister of Finance. Equanimity was eventually sold for $125 million — half its original price.

Low, on the other hand, is currently still a fugitive, sought by the government authorities of Malaysia, Singapore, and the US in connection with the scandal.

Reuters reported in September that the Malaysian authorities said they knew Low’s whereabouts and hoped to bring him in “by the end of the year.”
