PORT KLANG, Aug 11 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today revealed he has heard of rumours of rich buyers wanting to purchase the Equanimity.

“We have some idea that some people are interested in buying the ship. However, they must be very rich,” he said after visiting the Equanimity in Pulau Indah earlier.

Dr Mahathir also said the government was looking to sell the superyacht as soon as possible due to costly maintenance expenses.

“For now, we have to spend at least RM2 million a month to keep it in good shape,” he said.

The US$250 million (RM1.02 billion) yacht is currently docked at the Boustead Cruise Centre Terminal after arriving from Indonesia on Tuesday.
