Maltese Falcon Yacht

Most Expensive Sailing Yacht In The World

May 31 2011

The Maltese Falcon is a super yacht made for the rich. It is one of a kind yacht, it is second to none in its technologies and appearance. If you have $100+ million burning a hole in your pocket, this may be something you will enjoy.

With its 300 foot length, it is measured to be the largest yacht in the world.

It is super efficient and can reach 20 knots with no problems with its DynaRig sails. (square riggers)

The floors are also transparent, which allows natural sunlight to come through them and brighten the interior.

To rest there are five lower deck staterooms and one passage cabin on the upper deck with a private sun bathing area.
