95-metre Indian Empress confiscated in Malta for unpaid wages
The 95-metre superyacht Indian Empress has been seized in Malta due to claims that its crew are owed more than $1 million in unpaid wages. The yacht was previously linked to liquor baron Vijay Mallya.
The yacht was abandoned by her owner in September 2017. Much of Mallya’s assets in India and elsewhere have been either seized or frozen as he faces charges of money laundering and defrauding a consortium of Indian banks.

Indonesia police seized the 91.5-meter Equanimity near Bali as part of an ongoing multi-billion dollar asset investigation. She was allegedly purchased with funds siphoned from the Malaysian sovereign wealth fund 1MDB.

This yacht can boast clear, sleek and harmonious lines, resulting in pure and essential sobriety as well as a strong personality.
