'Rosehearty in Greece'
Now here would be a nice yacht if you had a few million lying around, but you're too late. It was snapped up over Christmas. Rupert Murdoch has sold his superyacht for $29.7M after just three months on the market.

Media mogul and self-made billionaire Rupert Murdoch seems to be ridding himself of several of his relationships. First his much younger wife, and now his VERY much younger yacht.
The yacht is the 56m (184ft) Rosehearty. One of the world's largest yachts, it was built for Rupert just eight years ago by Perini Navi. The interior design is by Christian Liaigre. It features 5 guest cabins, a dining room, gym and a multi-media room. Water skis and full sets of diving gear were also included in the sale.
Rosehearty can reach speeds of 13 knots, making it 'ideal' for worldwide cruising. There are three steamer-style loungers, flybridge sunpads and an on-deck jacuzzi.

However, Rupert, an inveterate worker, hasn't used the yacht much. In 2009 he put the yacht out to charter, with a price tag of 190,000 pounds for the summer holidays.
The yacht has played a sometimes important part in his life, entertaining world-renowned guests. It was even on a rare holiday on his yacht that he began to twitter.
