If I am not mistaken, this is owned by Tom Perkins a founder of one of the most successful private venture capital firms in Silicon Valley (early investors in Lotus, Tandom Computers, Yahoo, Genentech, Compac,Amazon, etc...). Through the company I used to work for I invested in a number of their funds and got to know Tom. Unfortunately not well enough to get a ride on his boat (ship as it is 290 ft). There is a book about the Falcon which is worth reading. Word is he is selling the Falcon in order to build another larger ship. Go figure.

Greetings folks, a rather striking photo of the new square rigger Maltese Falcon anchored off of Angel Island in San Francisco bay.
