Maltese Falcon Reportedly Sold for $100 Million
The 289-ft. Maltese Falcon, the world's largest, best designed, and most expensive sailing superyacht, has reportedly been sold for $100 million just a week after we reported the price had been slashed by $40 million. The incredible craft, which had at one point been listed as high as $165 million, was built by Perini Navi for venture capitalist Tom Perkins. The London Times reports Perkins has now found a buyer. "It has taken a while," he conceded to the paper, noting his profit margin had shrunk somewhat. "It is not the best time in the world to sell it. I can't tell you anything at all about the buyer. There is confidentiality." With its three 20-story carbon fiber masts fully rigged the yacht can cross the Atlantic in 10 days.
