Rupert Murdoch puts family yacht up for sale for $29.7m

“The aft deck offers ample space for sun lounging with three steamer-style loungers while the large upper deck and flybridge feature sunpads, that extend the full width of the aft section with a large Jacuzzi in front.

“She sports aluminium masts and carbon furling booms with the latest in-boom furling for mainsail and mizzen and the trademark Perini captive reel winches, all designed and built by Perini Navi.”

The yacht also comes with water skis, a wakeboard and diving gear.

“Rupert works all the time,” one yacht broker told CNBC. “He loves the boat, he loves to sail, but he doesn’t really use it much.”

Mr Murdoch, 82, announced in June that he will divorce his third wife after 14 years of marriage. He asked a court that custody of the couple’s daughters Grace, 11, and Chloe, seven, be shared between him and Ms Deng, a Chinese-born graduate of Yale University 38 years his junior.

A prenuptial agreement signed before their 1999 wedding will dictate Ms Deng’s claim to a share of his $ 11bn (£7 billion) fortune. His second wife, Anna, received a $ 1.7bn divorce settlement.
