Perini Navi Maltese Falcon Overview
The Maltese Falcon is a yacht that is unique in several ways. First of all, it is a very unusual long-builder. The hull itself was welded back in the early 90's for an Arab figure, but the Desert Storm wiped him and all his possible heirs off the face of the earth. The yacht's hull had been anchored for almost a decade and a half near the breakwater of the shipyard. Secondly, Maltese Falcon is the largest sailing yacht in the world today in terms of length, not maximum length, but length by hull. But it is also one of the smallest in terms of roominess, with only a couple of VIP guest cabins in addition to the master stateroom. Thirdly and thirdly, the sailing equipment is unprecedented in the world today, being the only realised Dynarig-type rig, which was suggested by a Hamburg engineer back in the sixties. Its advantages lie in its proximity to the ideal, in terms of aerodynamics, semi-elliptical wing of great elongation with a parabolic outline of the outer edges, which has the highest aerodynamic quality. Another advantage of this armament was the very low load acting on the sails and their luffs.
