Saddam's mega-yacht for sale - complete with secret passage!

Aneet says: "According to Radar Online, Saddam Hussein's private Mega-Yacht is for sale ($34 million). Link includes pics of the gaudy interior."
200712191105 "And because the former dictator had reason to be paranoid, the boat has bulletproof glass, closed-circuit television, storage space for a large cache of weapons, including heavy machine guns and surface-to-air missiles, and a secret passage that runs the length of the boat for easy access to a fast patrol boat and a mini-submarine pod for emergency exits."


  1. Great quote:

    “Design inspiration was said to be equal parts Disney’s Aladdin and Courtyard by Marriott”

    I lol’d.

  2. That’s pretty low. First you hang a man, then you sell off his yacht…Does anyone know if GWB has a yacht? Just asking.

  3. Say what you like about Saddam, he was really a dictator’s dictator. He would have made a great Bond villain: he had the mustache, he had the army of sinister black-clad henchmen, now it turns out that he even had a heavily-armed superyacht with its own getaway minisub. Does anyone know if he had a secret base under the North Pole?

  4. This is why I don’t think he was ever a threat to he United States. He loved the good things in life too much to risk losing it all by provoking the United States. What would he have to gain by that?

  5. #6 Mark, you can say the same for North Korea really, I’m sure KJI has a ghetto version of this vessel for his own use, just more raggedy and full of Hennessy.

  6. #7: Of course, there still could be currently secret passeges in there. Maybe connecting the bathroom and the shuffleboard deck.

    Hey . . . MINI SUBMARINE POD! Maybe there’s a secret silo with an escape rocket?

  7. Hey Frau Mark! My English not very good, but why equate Sad-damn with red rag in your modern language?

    #1 Sadamn has never dispensed a cent on any kind of sea vessel. True. In fact it was the Saudis who generously tipped him for fighting Iran. Good boy I’d say. Repeat after me: “Well done.” You had better praise him

    #2 Sadamn has never set foot on any one of “his” two yachts. Yup, you can’t deny this. Read what his captain has to say under

    #3 Too bad that the referenced yacht could never be delivered to Sadamn. Yay. Even worse, the similarities with “Prince Abdulaziz” indeed hint at Kingdom Holding as the current owner. No doubt, you got it right. To a chauvinist it is of course immediately clear that such a noble object must be in British hands.

    #4 I studied your authors and I came to realise that it is good to build floating fortresses and sink them subsequently. This is really Keyness, for recall: “Warhol is Peace”

    God bless America and bless my heart!

  8. #6 Mark you are 100% correct I agree with you completely.

    Just a punk, running a gang.
    The commitment of lives and cash is beyond the pale.
