The Maltese Falcon is the 3rd largest sailing yacht in the world. Purchased second hand at the fire sale price of only $97.36 million, this 305 foot long ultra-luxury craft is a modern square rigged ship, with super high tech sails that let it make 20 knots on wind power alone. Loaded down with every possible luxury and water toy imaginable, including 7 smaller boats and mini-submarines, the yacht spends most of it’s time being rented out, for a mere $607,000 a week. The owner, one of the world’s most successful hedge fund managers, is too busy working 112 hours a week to spend time sailing.
