Commercial Yachts

Chartering a yacht is one of the best ways to get introduced to superyachting and spend precious time with friends and family. It is increasingly common for owners to consider yacht chartering as a means of ownership too, as it gives them the ability to offset a portion of the running costs.


Yacht registration in Malta

Malta is well positioned in the central Mediterranean for yachts transiting east or west. Over the years Malta has developed a strong legal and regulatory platform which has enabled it to become one of the largest ship registers in the world - ranking 1st in Europe in the yachting industry.
