The $100 million Maltese Falcon

Maltese FalconThe 87.5 metre long Maltese Falcon, which set sail from Italy on Friday, is a $100 million yacht from venture capitalist Tom Perkins. With three masts towering  57 metres  above the deck, all of which can rotate to maximize speed and aerodynamics (a concept called the DynaRig), this amazing boat can stake a claim to being the fastest personal sailboat in the world.
