For Sale: A Yacht with a Dubious History

If you're in the market for a used megayacht, one with a less-than-glorious past and in even less-glorious condition just hit the market. Ocean Breeze, formerly owned by Saddam Hussein, is back on the market after months of legal wrangling between Iraq and France, according to ITN news.


ITN reports the yacht has the regular amenities such as a swimming pool and theater in addition to such dictator needs as escape hatches and rocket launchers.

When Ocean Breeze was for sale in 2008, she was listed at $30M but was unable to find a buyer, which is not all that surprising. There are some histories that even a refit couldn't erase. (And it looks like she's going to need a good refit.)
