Want To Buy Saddam Hussein’s Yacht?

By Erik Folgate

If you’ve got 20 million pounds, which translates to about $35 million bucks, you can buy Saddam Hussein’s yacht. The yacht was built in secrecy by the Iraqi government specifically for Saddam Hussein in 1981. The broker that will be auctioning off this yacht say that it will take as much money as its worth to remodel it, because Saddam kept the decor in its wonderful eighties-sheik-persian like fashion. Read the article that I linked to. It’s pretty funny.

Personally, if I had enough money to buy the yacht, I would drop a bomb on it and let that thing sink like the titanic somewhere out in the Mediterranean.
