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:
- ‘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’.

- ‘In The Neighbourhood’ information related to all the Marinas

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). .
