Maltese Falcon Visits San Francisco
www.symaltesefalcon.com/index2.asp It's in the San Francisco Bay this week ..I Shot this in Sausilito
The Maltese Falcon isn't a classic yacht, she's a new class of yacht. Her revolutionary sailing system - the Falcon Rig - sets a new milestone in yachting history: 3 self-standing and rotating masts hosting 15 sails for a total sail area of 2,400 square meters (25,791 ft square), handled by the ultimate in Perini Navi Sail Control for unrivalled performance with unmatched safety and manoeuvrability characteristics.
The incomparable interior finds its zenith in the atrium where the 3-decks are united by a circular stairway surrounding the main mast creating a spiralling effect, enhanced by natural light cascading from the top to the lower decks through transparent floors. The main deck is a wide open space featuring a main saloon, an enormous aft-cockpit, 2 separate studio areas and a majestic dining room. Uncompromising comfort for her 12 guests in 5 lower deck staterooms and 1 inimitable passage cabin on the upper deck with a private cockpit, a protected sun bathing area and direct access to the ultramodern wheelhouse: the heart of the whole vessel.
