So will it be beach, or bay? Billionaire Rockstar Energy Drink creator, Russ Weiner, is offering buyers a choice by listing his two sprawling South Florida waterfront mansions, each with a roughly $35 million asking price.

Weiner, 49, worth an estimated $4 billion according to Forbes, has just listed the two homes, one on 225 feet of sandy beach in Delray, the other with space for a 150-foot superyacht on Biscayne Bay in Miami.

The enthusiastic real estate dabbler reportedly paid $20 million for the Miami Beach compound on North Bay Road back in 2016. The two-story, Balinese-inspired house covers more than10,000 square feet and comes with six bedrooms, eight and a half baths, and boasts towering 30-foot ceilings.

But it’s the outdoor amenities that define this lush, waterfront estate set on a 48,000-square-foot lot. Among its fun-in-the-sun features, there’s a rooftop terrace, a dock for a 150-foot superyacht, an XXL-sized 25,000-pound boat lift and four jet-ski lifts.

The massive resort-style reef pool area features an eight-person Jacuzzi and cold-water plunge pool, state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen and barbecue, plus a number of sun-shading loggias.

“This exquisite property offers not only a home, but also a complete coastal dream lifestyle. It truly is an oasis of serenity, luxury and unwavering attention to detail,” says Brett Harris, listing agent with Douglas Elliman.

An hour’s drive north to Delray Beach finds the six-bedroom oceanfront estate Weiner bought for $11.6 million in 2009. According to Candace Friis, the listing agent with the Corcoran Group, the home’s biggest appeal is its 225 feet of beachfront on the Atlantic.

“It’s rare to find a property with this much prime oceanfront and to be within walking distance of all that Delray’s Atlantic Avenue has to offer. It truly is an exceptional property,” she explains.

Built in 1998, the 21,000-square-foot contemporary Florida home occupies a double lot on Delray Beach’s South Ocean Boulevard. Set well back from the beach—a winding path leads to the sand—the estate features an air conditioned 12-car garage, a large pool and spa, and its own tennis court.

Interestingly, Weiner originally listed the estate for $35 million, but after news broke of the listing, he raised the asking to an even more ambitious $36.5 million.

Since he began speculating in real estate, the energy drink mogul has acquired something of a reputation for price changing.

In 2017, he listed his renovated Beverly Hills mansion for $45 million, quickly dropping the price to around $36 million, then took it off the market. In August he reportedly splashed $16.5 million on an 11,570-square-foot, three-story mansion in LA’s ritzy birds streets area in Hollywood Hills West, only to re-list it two weeks later for a whopping $28 million.

Also within his property portfolio currently with “for sale” signs outside; an Hermosa Beach house in Southern California listed for $21 million, and singer Madonna’s former French-inspired Beverly Hills compound, yours for $35 million.

The son of right-wing talk-radio star Michael Savage, Weiner hit fame and fortune back in 2001, at age 31, when he created Rockstar using a $50,000 mortgage on his Sausalito, Calif. condo.

If he sells his two South Florida homes, we’ll certainly drink to his success. A can of Rockstar, naturally.
