The owners of a V’s Barbershop, linked to the family that owned the historic Yankee Clipper hotel, sold their waterfront Fort Lauderdale estate for $9.5 million.

Jenna and Keith Keltner sold the 6,055-square-foot home at 1749 Southeast 13th Street for $1,568 per square foot to a Nevada company called Grace 1749.

The home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Its amenities include a wine room, gym, an open floor plan, eat-in gourmet kitchen and master bedroom on the ground level with dual baths and walk-in closets. It was designed by Tuthill Architecture.

The property also has 320 feet of water frontage and a 45-foot boat slip. The home was built in 2017 and was listed for $10 million in March. Tim Elmes of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate had the listing. The buyer was represented by Darin Tansey of the Eklund-Gomes team of Douglas Elliman.

The land was inherited by Jenna Keltner, whose family owned the historic Yankee Clipper hotel in Fort Lauderdale Beach that resembled a cruise ship.

The iconic resort opened in 1956 as the Sheraton Yankee Clipper. It was often featured in films over the past decades, including the 1999 movie “Analyze This,” starring Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal. The family sold the hotel in 2005. It is now known as the B Ocean Resort.

The Keltners are currently the franchise owners of V’s Barbershop in Fort Lauderdale, the popular barbershop’s first location in South Florida. Keith Keltner was formerly a marketing and operations specialist who worked at the Boca Raton-based headquarters for Office Depot. Jenna Keltner previously helped Spirit Airlines during its IPO, according to V’s Barbershop in Fort Lauderdale’s website.

Fort Lauderdale’s luxury residential sale prices generally pale in comparison to the high-end homes on Miami Beach or Palm Beach, but the area has seen a number of big sales in recent months.

In May, a major used-car dealer paid $17.36 million at auction for a waterfront Fort Lauderdale mansion, marking the most expensive single-family home sale in the city over the last 18 months.
