First listed for sale at the end of 2016 asking €250 million, Ona was later no longer publicly marketed for sale.

Builder: Perini Navi (2006)

LOA: 88m

Owner: Elena Ambrosiadou

Location: headed to Antibes



Maltese Falcon is an iconic yacht that had held the title of the world’s largest sailing yacht until Oceanco launched the Black Pearl in 2017.

Commissioned in 2000 by Tom Perkins, the late venture capitalist, the Maltese Falcon  took nearly six years to complete. Sold to hedge fund manager Elena Ambrosiadou at an asking price of €70 million in 2009, the 88-meter is now one of the largest yachts available for charter with a rate starting from €360,000 per week.

Maltese Falcon’ most innovative attribute became her sails that could rotate based on the direction of the wind. This was a first for the yachting industry. This innovative system allows the yacht to even sail against the wind. 

Maltese Falcon features a cruising speed of 16 knots. Meanwhile, in a storm in the Gulf of Lion, France she demonstrated a speed of 26 knots under sail alone.

Designed by Ken Freivokh, the Maltese Falcon was extensively refurbished in 2015/2016 during a refit. She can accommodate up to 12 guests on-board.

Her exterior lines draw the eye to the bridge and owner’s decks surrounded by curved floor-to-ceiling mirrored glass, blurring the distinction between the upper deck and the panoramic skylounge.With accommodation capacity for 14 guests, Excellence offers a swimming pool and platform, as well as Jacuzzi and sprawling beach club and impressive limousine tenders.Hans Schaedla, CEO of Abeking & Rasmussen, stated earlier: We are very proud of this extraordinary yacht and our exceptional workforce, who mastered all requirements bravely. Never before have glass panels been installed in these dimensions. The unusual lines also repeatedly presented employees with major challenges.The 80-metre Excellence is the sixth Chambers’s vessel. Two other Abeking superyachts, the 61-metre Excellence V built for Chambers and the 78-metre Eminence, were sold in May and August 2019, respectively.

On the 10th of September 2019 at 15:30 local time, the 90-metre Corsair-built superyacht Nero listed to port in a dry dock No. 1 at the Amico & Co refit yard in Genova during drydock operations. According to the official statement by the yacht's managers Döhle Yachts, Nero came to rest at an angle of about 30 degrees within the dock.

Safety work in progress.»The official statement indicates that the yacht did not contact the dock wall and appears to have suffered only minimal damage, though the surveys and inspections are ongoing. According to the statement, the crew left the superyacht safely after the incident and there were no serious injuries sustained.Italian newspaper Primocanale.it, the incident might have been caused by a support panel giving way when the yacht was being relaunched.
