A super-yacht built for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is awaiting a buyer in France, with an asking price of 23.5 million euros (34.5 million dollars), according to a specialist website.
The 82-metre (270-feet) Ocean Breeze, built in 1981 by Danish shipyard Helsingor Vaerft, started life as the Qadissiyat Saddam, but was never actually delivered to Iraq, says www.superyachttimes.com.
Instead it was bought by the Saudi royal family, renamed Al-Yamamah, and moored in the port of Jeddah for 10 years. The vessel was disposed of earlier this year to King Abdullah of Jordan, before being renamed again, French daily Nice-Matin reported on Saturday.
The yacht, which can take 28 passengers and has a crew of 35, is docked in the French port of Nice.
Brokers Burgess of London is selling the yacht for 23,512,790 euros, or 34,450,000 dollars, according to superyachttimes.com.
