Teodorin Obiang, the son of the president of Equatorial Guinea, has ordered a $400-million yacht, according to Global Witness.The dictator’s son is a notorious playboy who also owns a $31-million home in Malibu, a rare Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and his own hip-hop label.

His yacht will be the second most expensive in the world, after Roman Abramovich’s $1.2-billion Eclipse, on which Obiang’s yacht is apparently modelled. Features include a cinema, restaurant, bar, swimming pool and a security system complete with floor motion sensors and fingerprint door openers, according to the AFP.

However, construction has not yet started on the Geman-built yacht. And there’s a chance father Teorodo Obiang will cancel the order due to international pressure.
