The Maltese Falcon leaves Turkey and is now bound for La Spezia
The Maltese Falcon has left the Yildiz shipyards in Turkey on the 1st of July, and is now sailing towards La Spezia via Malta (in the pictures, MF sailing through the Bosphorus, and leaving La Valletta port).
The owner declared:
“We picked the departure date of July 1st to leave the yard, and during the weeks before, the work was intense—literally 24 by seven to be ready on time. After a final reception for Turkish dignitaries on the beautiful Istanbul Bosporus setting, and a magnificent display of fire-works courtesy of Perini Navi the night of the 30th, we sailed away, in about 10 knots forward of the beam, early on the 1st”.
