Maltese Falcon

When the project began most of the engineering techniques and the necessary integration of technology, for a fully functioning DynaRig had not yet been achieved.

  • Builder/Designer: Perini
  • Yacht Type:  289' Clipper Yacht
  • Model Scale: 1/16"=1'
  • Model Completion Date: 2007
  • Model Description: Desktop model requiring 2,100 man-hours

Model created for venture capitalist Tom Perkins as park of his private model collection. 

The Maltese Falcon is a testament to the reward of taking monumental risks at all levels for the engineers, designers, builders and even model builders. His dream was realized and by all accounts deemed a success.
