Without a doubt, owning luxury yachts are every rich person’s favorite past time. And this time around the market has a rather unique yacht for sale. Called the Maltese Falcon, this one is big at 289-ft, and is being sold at James List for a whopping $138 million.
The brainchild of Italian Perini Navi Yachts on the special demand of American millionaire Tom Perkins in 2006, the Maltese Falcon is perhaps the largest and fastest personal sailboat in the world. Its three gigantic 57-meter-tall-free-standing masts achieve the rather extraordinary target. Even the DynaRig under its hood helps in speeding up things. No wonder, the yacht has a history of crossing the Atlantic in 10 days flat.
A fiber-optic sensor system keeps track of the wind speed and force to maintain a strong and consistent sailing. The interior is equally luxurious with five gorgeous staterooms that can entertain 12 guests. The master bedroom is on the upper deck with a private cockpit, sunbathing area and direct access to the wheelhouse. This is just the tip of the yacht.
