The ex-wife of a resort developer and cruise line owner put her waterfront Fort Lauderdale estate for sale asking $13.8 million.

Esther Lambert, who owned the house with her then-husband Daniel Lambert, relisted the 17,800-square-foot, seven-bedroom mansion at 2900 Northeast 37th Street.

The 1.09-acre, Mediterranean-style property has 665 feet of waterfront, a guest home, two waterfront docks, a swimming pool and waterfall, pool bar and a seven-car garage. The house features marble and wood floors, a stone fireplace, ballet studio, gymnastics room and home office. Douglas Elliman Director of Luxury Sales Steven Solomon is listing the home.

It’s been on the market before: once in 2012 for $22 million, again in 2014 for nearly $18 million, last year for about $16 million, and now at $13.8 million, according to Realtor.com.

The Lamberts paid $1.25 million for the property in 2000, and Esther Lambert received full ownership in 2009 for $7 million, records show.

Daniel Lambert, who owns resorts in South Florida and Orlando and co-founded American Top Team, a mixed-martial arts team, made headlines in the early 2000s over an alleged vacation scam he settled for $1.5 million. The lawsuit, brought by 17 states and the District of Columbia, accusing him of running scams where travelers were allegedly promised free trips but instead were charged exorbitant hidden fees, according to the New Times-Broward and Palm Beach.

Esther Lambert’s home sits on the Intracoastal, north of where Rick Ross recently sold his Fort Lauderdale mansion last month.
