At 289 feet (88 meters), Maltese Falcon has a commanding presence. She’s even more commanding when out on the race circuit, practically a rocket ship on the water. She’s capable of 18 knots. Her performance prowess makes for impressive cruising, too. Maltese Falcon can cross the Atlantic Ocean in 10 days and comfortably cruise at 14 knots. Her 15 sails, mounted on three rotating masts, are controlled with push buttons for high-tech maneuverability and accuracy. The rig is based on the DynaRig, which dates to the 1960s. Maltese Falcon has a much more modernized arrangement, fittingly termed the Falcon Rig.
Speaking of modern, inside, Maltese Falcon is thoroughly contemporary. She’s also versatile. If her owner or charter guests so need, Maltese Falcon has four guest staterooms that can convert into two huge VIP suites. There’s an additional VIP stateroom on the upper deck, and of course a main-deck master.
No yacht is complete without watertoys. Maltese Falcon carries a mini armada: windsurfers, sailboats, SeaBobs, stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, three tenders, and two PWCs. An inflatable slide can be set up from the top deck. At night, that same deck can become an alfresco cinema. The lower mizzen sail serves as the movie screen, and the crew set up portable standing speakings. Once they arrange the furnishings for everyone, all Maltese Falcon guests have to do is pass the popcorn.
