The 88 metre Maltese Falcon in Antigua

The revolutionary 88 metre Maltese Falcon, seen here today at the Antigua Yacht Club, is famed for her sophisticated automated square rigged DynaRig sail plan. Three towering free-standing rotating carbon-fibre masts hold 25,800 sq. ft. of canvas on 15 square sails delivering exceptional performance, speed and manoeuvrability. There is a 106 metre sailing yacht currently under construction in Holland, project Solar, with the same rig setup as Maltese Falcon. The yacht, built by Perini Navi, was sold in August of 2009 to her current owner, who actively takes part in superyacht regatta's, showing off the yachts capabilities.
