THE MIGHTY MALTESE FALCON by KAREN WILES
The Maltese Falcon built by Perini Navi in Tuzla, Turkey is a ship-rigged sailing luxury yacht, commissioned and formerly owned by American venture capitalist Tom Perkins. It is one of the largest privately owned sailing yachts in the world at 88 m (289 ft), similar to Royal Huisman's Athena and L's Eos. The yacht was sold in 2009 to Elena Ambrosiadou the founder of IKOS Ltd., the Cyprus-based hedge fund.
She has two 1800 horsepower Deutz engines, and is almost as long as a football field! She is shown here in the waters off of beautiful St. Barts.
