$100 Million Maltese Falcon yacht is a clipper sailing luxury yacht, commissioned and formerly owned by American venture capitalist Tom Perkins. It is one of the largest privately-owned sailing yachts in the world at 88 m (290 ft)
The 86 m yacht is called the Quattroelle. Its name means Love, Life, Freedom and Luxury and its easy to see why. The perfect place to relax and unwind from the stress of everyday life…if you could afford it of course! The broker, Moran Ship & Yacht, would not disclose the new owner or sale price, but the yacht was previously available for charter for $1.29 million per week.
Real - This is apparently a real collision between a sailboat and a juvenile Southern Right Whale, which was breaching, off the coast of South Africa. Although, there are several strange coincidences related to this event. The photos were taken from a boat which happened to be following and had a camera at the ready. No major damage to the hull and they claimed the whale suffered no serious injury. Update maybe they were harassing the whale.....
UK-based Dixon Yacht & Ken Freivokh Design presented their latest creation, the Mantis 80 luxury yacht, at the recently concluded Monaco Yacht Show 2011. The event which had 500 yacht makers from around the world, under the patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, took notice of the Mantis 80, for the sheer brilliance with which elegance, sophistication, and modern design have been given common ground.
