The Maltese Falcon With 289 ft, the Maltese Falcon is the second largest privately-owned sailing yacht in the world and it was built by the Italian Perini Navi Yachts.
Shecan achieve nearly full 20 knots and the two 1,800hp engines make no noise or vibration.
The ship has fifteen square sails (five per mast) which open in six minutes.
It belongs to Tom Perkins, the first General Manager of HP and the venture capitalist behind Amazon.com, AOL, Googleand Sun Microsystems.
Her accommodations can be configured from four to six stateroom suites.
One of four guest suitesthat can convert into two enormous VIP suites each with his/her heads.
A porcelain Bugatti emerges from the table in the center of the saloon at the mere touch of a button.
Above the table, in the leather floor dining room, a skylight blind opens like the iris aperture on a camera.
An atrium with clear glass floor surrounds the main mast well, with a staircase spiraling down three decks.
Her sea toys: two 32' Rigid Inflatable Boats, fourlaser sailing boats, one 14' jet tender, two kayaks, banana, wakeboard, 6 full sets of dive gears,water skis, snorkeling gears, techno gym, etc etc etc.
Tom Perkins reportedly had to sell his beloved Bugatti to help fund the yacht. Poor guy...
