BOSTON (Reuters) - Wanted: A buyer for billionaire investor Carl Icahn's 177-foot motor yacht.

Brokerage firm Northrop & Johnson listed Icahn's yacht, Starfire, this week.

The vessel "boasts accommodations for 12 guests in six luxurious staterooms," the brokers wrote, adding that Starfire has a helicopter pad and Quantum Zero speed stabilizers.

Icahn was among a few ranked 46th in a list of the world's richest people published by Forbes magazine in March, with a net worth of roughly $14 billion.

He is a veteran activist shareholder who has taken stakes in many companies.

Icahn was not available to comment on why he is selling the yacht.
