Gregory Bonann, co-creator of “Baywatch,” is taking his eyes off the ocean.

The T.V. producer and longtime Los Angeles lifeguard listed his Hawaii-inspired four-story Malibu pad for $8.9 million, a hefty sum compared to the $1 million he paid for it in 1999, according to Mansion Global.

The custom-built 3,121-square-foot Las Flores Beach home, inspired by Bonann’s time as a lifeguard in Hawaii, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with a grotto-style spa area and a large entertainment deck, according to the listing details.

Diane Everett of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury has the listing.

Bonnan previously listed the estate along with a separate 2,600-square-foot property next door for $18.5 million in 2010. He sold the smaller home for $5.25 million in 2012 and is now hoping to sell the main residence.

While working as a lifeguard, Bonnan saved the children of Stu Erwin Jr., development executive at production company MTM enterprises. The chance encounter gave him the opportunity to pitch his idea for “Baywatch” to Erwin and former NBC chairman and CEO Grant Tinker. [MG] — Subrina Hudson
