Project Description

The Yacht

The legendary three-masted yacht commissioned by Thomas J. Perkins as his third Perini Navi, S/Y The Maltese Falcon pioneered the revolutionary sailing system now known as the Falcon Rig: with in mast furling systems designed by Fabio Perini and unprecedented automation and safety features, the rig has allowed this 88m yacht to reach the incredible speed of 25 knots.

S/Y The Maltese Falcon’s spectacular interiors were designed by Ken Freivokh.
