2 At 289 ft overall length, Maltese Falcon is the second- largest privately-owned sailing yacht in the World. It was built by an Italian firm, 'Perini Navi Yachts'

3 The Falcon has clocked almost 20 knots under sail, and has twin 1,800 hp diesel engines for auxiliary power

4 The Falcon has an advanced Dynarig sail plan – basically a square rig sporting three masts that can be rotated as needed to trim the sails for optimal aerodynamic performance.

19 Above the table, in the leather-floored dining room, a skylight blind opens like the iris aperture of a camera.
