Hitler’s globe-shaped yacht bar emerges for sale after being kept in a Maryland barn for 70 years

The onboard drinks bar and a set of five stools from Adolf Hitler’s private yacht are set to fetch $250,000 at auction.

The chairs and the bar, which is modelled on a globe, were saved from the Nazi leader’s 377ft vessel, an aviso named Grille, when it was scrapped.
