The Iraqi government is getting ready to sell a luxury yacht belonging to their former dictator Saddam Hussein. It is hoped that although it is not quite as luxurious as newer yachts, it should still fetch over $35m.
The 270ft boat has swimming pools, an operating theater, a helipad, and a James Bond villain style escape tunnel leading to a submarine. Colors are decor could be described as gaudy and ostentatious.
The ship was built in 1981 in Denmark, but Saddam Hussein is said never to have stayed on it for fear of political instability back home if he left the country.
