KUALA LUMPUR: A video supposedly depicting interior of super yacht Equanimity, now in Port Klang, has gone viral on social media.
The 1:40-second video, recorded by a unknown man speaking with a northern accent, showed the yacht’s upper deck and stern.
An inflatable motorized boat, bearing the word ‘Equanimity’ is seen in the frame, lending credence that the footage was recorded when the vessel docked in Port Klang upon arrival from Indonesia.
The yacht, estimated to be worth RM1 billion, has been linked to fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho, better known as Jho Low.
Also seen in the video was Federal Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd, who was inspecting the luxury vessel.
Efforts to gain more information on the authenticity of the video from Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun were unsuccessful at press time.
Reports had previously suggested that 91.5m yacht, capable of carrying 26 guests, has gold leaf and marble trimmings, a spa and sauna, 20-metre swimming pool, cinema, elevator and a helipad.
Jeremy Joseph, the lawyer representing the Malaysian government in its claim for the yacht, had told reporters on Tuesday that the vessel had wood and marble interior.
Joseph had said that 16 people from a special team tasked with bringing inspecting the vessel, wore shoe covers so they would not damage the yacht’s interior.
The vessel had arrived in Port Klang at 11am on Tuesday after an almost 20-hour journey from Batam, Indonesia.
NSTP had previously reported that the Indonesian government had handed over the vessel to Malaysia following a request from Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
