Maltese Falcon Available for Charter at $500,000 / Week
Last August we reported that he 289-ft. Maltese Falcon, the world's largest, best designed, and most expensive sailing superyacht, had changed hands for around $100 million. Now the incredible craft's new owner, Elena Ambrosiadou, Greek-born founder of hedge fund Ikos Partners, has given her new toy a makeover and is offering it for charter in the Mediterranean this summer at $500,000 per week. Ambrosiadou, the UK's highest-paid woman and its wealthiest female entrepreneur, has replaced the previous owner's awful contemporary art and bejeweled Bugatti sculptures with slightly less awful artwork. Even so it doesn't detract from the spectacular atrium where the three decks are united by a circular stairway surrounding the main mast creating a spiraling effect, enhanced by natural light cascading through transparent floors. The main deck is a wide open space featuring a main saloon, an enormous aft cockpit, two separate studio areas and a majestic dining room. The Maltese also now comes equipped with a gymnasium, two Segway scooters, and a full time on-board sports therapist / masseuse.
