Videos of Superyacht "Maltese Falcon"

Maltese Falcon built by Perini Navi in Tuzla, Turkey is a ship-rigged sailing luxury yacht. 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 Lürssen's Eos.

Maltese Falcon is easily controlled and has been seen to sail off her anchor and away from berths within harbors. The yacht's sophisticated computer detects parameters such as wind speed automatically and displays key data. An operator must always activate the controls, yet it is possible for a single person to pilot the yacht.
