The luxurious 300-foot 1MDB-linked yacht previously owned by Malaysia’s fugitive financier Low Taek Jho in now available to rent for $1.25 million a week.

The yacht, which is now called Tranquility, is now anchored at Le Vieux Port at Cannes on the French Riviera and the rental price excludes fuel and other charges.

The Malaysian government had struggled to find buyers for the ship before selling it to casino company Genting Malaysia for $126 million in April.

The yacht has floating platforms at the stern that drop down to the water, a gymnasium, a massage room as well as a sauna, a 200-square-foot plunge pool and a jacuzzi with a clear bottom on the upper deck.

Additionally, a grand piano sits in the main saloon, decorated with marble and gold leaf.

Formerly known as Equanimity and driven by two 4,828 horse-powered engines, the yacht arrived at the French Riviera only 1 July from Singapore via Sri Lanka, reported Bloomberg.
