Miami Yacht Watch: Rockstar returns after 2014 bridge accident, asking $17M

Owned by Rockstar founder Russ Weiner

Rockstar, an aptly-named superyacht owned by Rockstar energy founder Russ Weiner, has returned to Miami, docking outside the Epic Hotel.

The 161-footer is currently on the market asking $16.9 million (previously asking $21 million) and includes a jacuzzi on the top deck in addition to a gym. Its contemporary interior was designed by Patrick Knowles, and the vessel won a World Superyacht Award in 2010 for Best Semi-Displacement Hull.

The yacht’s also known for an infamous accident back in 2014, when the Broad Causeway Bridge near Bay Harbor Islands collapsed on the boat while it was passing underneath, narrowly missing the hot tub.

Rockstar sleeps 12 and can be chartered for around $240,000 a week.

Weiner made news in South Florida this summer when he bought a $20 million mansion in Miami Beach.
