JUAN BARRETO/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Hannibal Gadhafi, the 36-year-old son of the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, would have ruled the seas in a custom-made luxury liner, had his dictator father not been deposed and killed.

The Daily Mail reports Hannibal had been building a ship that would have been decked out with extras — like a tank filled with man-eating sharks. The ship reportedly cost nearly $500 million and was still unfinished when Gadhafi was ousted and his clan forced to flee. Gadhafi ended up fleeing to Algeria.  

The opulent ship he would have dubbed Phoenicia has since been completed — minus the shark tank — and has been purchased by a Korean cruise line company.
