Spalding get your foot off the boat!

Tom Perkins, the prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalist, is apparently looking to cash in one of his investments — but in this case, the investment is not a Web start-up but a high-tech superyacht. Mr. Perkins has put The Maltese Falcon up for sale, just two years after he first set sail on it.
Mr. Perkins, one of the founders of venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufied & Byers, reportedly spent at least $150 million on building the yacht. He has asked its builder, Perini Navi, to offer it for $181 million, according to, which called it the “world’s most spectacular sailing yacht.”
