The Maltese Falcon, the most expensive and advanced sailing yacht ever built, just sold for $100 million after a big price drop. It has some unique tech features, such as one person can sail it ("it" being a three master @ 239 feet long) because of all the computer controls and automatic furling and unfurling of the sails, etc. A

It has some unique tech features, such as one person can sail it ("it" being a three master @ 239 feet long) because of all the computer controls and automatic furling and unfurling of the sails, etc. Another of the features, originally designed for sailing cargo ships, is rotating masts. Previously it also came with a submarine, but that was removed from the sale.
