The yacht also has a secret passage to allow the owner to access a second motor boat.  This can be used as an escape in case of emergency. The yacht is also outfitted with two surgery rooms and a special operation room. The luxury yacht was once equipped with a ground-to-air missile system.  This system is not going to be auctioned.

Legally, the yacht now belongs to the incumbent government of Iraq. Organizers of the auction say that it would be naïve for them to think that the auction market has not been affected with the global credit crisis / crunch.

Beautiful Kate Moss on Motor Yacht in France

The ever beautiful Kate Moss has been enjoying herself on this luxury motor yacht off the super wealthy Cap-Ferrat, on the Cote d’Azure, South of France. St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is located between Nice and Monaco and is not far from Bono’s summer house which is on the water front of Eze.

‘News of the World’ has reported that the 33 year old supermodel was vacationing with pal Davinia Taylor.  The two beauties can be seen having summer fun splashing around and swimming off the back of their yacht.

Inflatable rings and other water toys were getting a good work out and Kate also enjoyed basking in the French sun.  Meanwhile, Kate’s new man, 34-year-old guitarist Jamie Hince, was working with his rock band The Kills.

A witness to Ms Moss’ yacht outing said: “Kate spent most of the time in a white bikini bottom which undid at the sides. When it was wet, she changed into a black and yellow one.”
 
To cap it all off, Kate and Davinia debarked from their boat for a dinner outing at exclusive fish restaurant Le Sloop, also at ST Jean Cap Ferrat.  What a life indeed!
