Maltese Falcon was built for the late American venture capitalist Tom Perkins, and is now owned by Elena Ambrosiadou. The iconic three-masted schooner is one of the largest sailing yachts in the world. Her Falcon Rig is made up of three unstayed, 'weapons-grade' carbon fibre masts, with a fully computerised sail and rotating mast system. The system has been dubbed a triumph of design, development and engineering and Maltese Falcon has topped an impressive 24 knots under sail. The Ken Freivokh interior is a marriage of industrial chic and high tech. It features leather, glass, wood and steel as well as a modern art collection. She has accommodation for 12 guests and is available for charter.
