Rupert Murdoch is looking for a buyer for his luxurious sailing yacht. 

The media mogul has listed a six-cabin yacht, named Rosehearty, for $29.7 million, a News Corp spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter

The 56-meter yacht, which is manned by a crew of 10, first set sail in 2006. The listing on Camper & Nicholsons International boasts that the vessel "is in very good condition" and "comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in a full-beam master suite, two identical VIP staterooms, two doubles and a single with Pullman berth."

The listing was first reported by CNBC's Robert Frank.

It was aboard the yacht while on vacation in December 2011 that Murdoch reportedly decided to join Twitter, where he has maintained an active social media presence. 

The mogul has had a busy summer. Murdoch oversaw the planned split of the former News Corp.'s entertainment and publishing assets -- separating newspapers like the New York Post and Wall Street Journal from movie and TV divisions like 20th Century Fox and Fox News. 

In June, the News Corp chairman filed for divorce from his wife of 14 years, Wendi Deng.

Earlier this month, Murdoch closed on a historic $28.7 million, 13-acre winery in Bel-Air called Moraga Vineyards.
