Rupert Murdoch is Selling His Yacht for Only $29.7 Million

Rupert Murdoch is selling his sailing yacht — named Roseharty — for $29.7 million. Murdoch is going through a divorce and he recently purchased a winery, so it makes sense that he’s looking to recoup some cash on the yacht. Plus, CNBC’s sources say Murdoch never used it as much as Wendi Murdoch did, which is totally not the reason Rupert is selling it.

Here are some details about Roseharty, via CNBC:

The yacht was built in 2006 by Perini Navi, the Italian shipyard known for its luxurious, sleek sailing yachts. Rosehearty has a crisp, modern interior by French designer Christian Liaigre, with five suites for 10 guests, including two VIP suites. The main mast of the yacht towers at 193 feet, and it has a sail area of 16,792 square feet.

An ’06 Perini Navi with interior by Christian Liaigre? Hmmm… We say lowball it.
