It’s far more common to see superyachts departing The Netherlands in summer, rather than heading toward the country. However, in the case of the yacht Tranquility, the reason is pretty simple. She has returned to the proverbial place of her birth, that being Oceanco, for service.
Delivered as Equanimity in 2014, the yacht has been chartering for the past few years, besides hosting private owner cruises. The 300-footer (91.5-meter) had been in the Med in early June, and made her way to The Netherlands in the latter part of the month.
Although the details of the works at Oceanco are not public at this time, the yacht is apparently receiving some upgrades. She has quite a remarkable engineering backbone, too. Firstly, she was among the first to comply with the Passenger Yacht Code. This safety regulation allows the yacht Tranquility to have 18 guests stay aboard in her standard layout. Notably, on a related subject, as many as 22 guests can enjoy her spacious staterooms, since some of them have convertible areas. Whether chartering or with the owner aboard, the guests getting the bridge-deck VIP have one of the most enviable suites. It’s the only stateroom on the deck and has direct access to the aft deck.
Also in terms of safety, Oceanco constructed her with an ice-class hull. Although she has yet to head to polar climes for cruising, she will be there soon enough. In fact, she is booking charters from this coming December through February 2024. There, she has the capability to voyage carefully through thin-ice conditions.
Among the creature comforts aboard, the pool on the upper deck stands out. Visible in this footage, though not full, it’s a circular, 247-square-foot (23-square-meter) plunge pool. Close by are a bar and, of course, lots of space for sun lounges to sit.
With detailed murals throughout, a cinema-like upper saloon, and an indoor-outdoor circular dining area, the yacht Tranquility has an impressive ambience. Once she returns to cruising, guests will get back to enjoying these areas, plus the basketball court on her upper deck.
