YACHTING IN MALTA is the definitive Directory of the yachting services and facilities in Malta. The 9th Edition of the bi-annual Yachting Directory for 2011-2012 marks the 35th Anniversary since the publication of the 1st Edition of way back in 1976.
A Wilfred Sultana & Associates publication, Yachting in Malta is primarily aimed at visiting yachtsmen, and touches on various topics that are bound to make a yachtsman’s stay in Malta a far more worthwhile experience: with guides on tourist attractions, nautical sport, maritime history and entertainment.

Yachting in Malta presents detailed and essential information to make a visit, no matter the length, less stressful and full of vital information.  It saves time checking out the basics – where is the nearest supermarket that delivers to the yacht/where can you get gas/hire a car or charts.  In fact it is the compendium for all visiting sailors needs.

So much to know; so much is told:

Overview of the Directory:

  1. Welcome Ashore – Malta And Its Islands’ filled with ‘Useful Information’ about the Island and a who’s who guide providing services and facilities under ‘At Your Service’.

  2. A focus on the Marinas – ‘Grand Harbour, Portomaso Manoel Island,Msida & Ta’ Xbiex Quay, Mgarr (Gozo)’ – and an overview of the new proposed marinas.

  3. ‘In The Neighbourhood’ information related to all the Marinas
  4. Yacht Repair Facilities’ - vital to visitors.

  5. Yacht Chartering’ offers new ideas if you want to charter instead of bringing your own
    boat to the Islands.

  6. Malta Maritime Authority’ - the last word in the business – setting the pace for all maritime development.

  7. Trade-formed ‘Yachting Clusters’ work to strengthen the industry.

  8. Brands Mini Directory’ is a goldmine of information as to who represents whom, while ‘Insurance – Losses & Claims Assistance‘ and ‘Marine Law – The Malta Flag’ are important info.

  9. All Marine history enthusiasts should find ‘The Maritime Museum’, ‘The Wickman Maritime Collection’ and ‘Ta’ Kelinu Grima Maritime Museum (Gozo)’ so very informative.

  10. Sports, Leisure & Fun’ underlines the many nautical sport events with ‘Diving Around The Maltese Islands’ drawing the depths of such attention.

  11. Drink & Dine…..next door’ and ‘Dining Delights’ are bound to wet the apatite.

  12. Property Styles For All Tastes’ is of interest to those thinking of moving to the delightful Islands with hints and tips on buying and residency.

  13. Super Visitors Album’ presenting a pictorial souvenir of a number of superyachts who called in Malta.

  14. The ‘Blue Pages’ are highly informative covering section by section - not in yellow! - But in blue!

  15. Embedded in all this is an 8-Page Photographic Special depicting the works of renowned photographer Kurt Arrigo.


With the collaboration of the Malta Tourism Authority and the Malta Maritime Authority the publication is sent to leading overseas yacht clubs and yachting associations, who are cordially requested, to make this Directory available in their clubhouse.

Flashback to a memorable moment – Thanks to the endeavour of the local trade the 1989 edition of the London International Boat Show had Malta as its main theme. In fact that year’s Boat Show was inaugurated by Dr. Eddie Fenech Adami, then Prime Minister of Malta.  The occasion also served as a prestigious launching platform for an edition of Yachting in Malta. In picture editor/publisher Wilfred Sultana presenting Prime Minister Dr. Eddie Fenech Adami with a copy of the yachting directory in the presence of some local traders, namely, from left, the late Joe Farrugia (International Marine Centre), Myra Gauci Borda (Gauci Borda & Co Ltd), Peter Fiorini Lowell (S&D Yachts Ltd), Victor Bezzina (Bezzina Yacht Yard) and Fabian Brincat (Fabian Enterprises Ltd). .
