Saddam Hussein's yacht

The 270-foot Ocean Breeze has mahogany carvings, gold tap fittings, and an escape tunnel leading to a submarine.

Iraq is selling the craft, but analysts believe it will not be eagerly bid on - not because of the worldwide financial crisis, but because it doesn't measure up to modern standards, not having a gym, and having only one helipad.

I swear there are days when it is hard to feel sympathy for the superwealthy. About 365 such days a year.
