Do you provide meals?

Yes at Yachting Malta we  cover with all your catering needs. Whether you wish to sample some local delicacies, like goats cheese and broad bean dip with water biscuits, or prefer a warm meal- we can accommodate your every dietary requirement. Should you wish to bring your own food, we do not charge corkage fee’s and are able to heat up any pre-prepared homemade dishes of your own. From complimentary water and soft drinks to a nominal charge for sparkling wine and strawberries- we’ve got it covered!

I wish to book a special anniversary cruise with my partner, but they have a history of travel sickness. How can I avoid their sea sickness ruining a fun time?

Should you be at all concerned with feeling queasy, if you don’t have sea legs or are not familiar with boat protocol, we recommend that you seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist regarding specialised medication. Take the travel pill, in the recommended dose, at least one hour before you sail, and this will cover you, or a fellow traveller, in case the nausea hits at the wrong time! Our seasoned skippers will advise you on the best place to sit on deck in order to minimise the effects of the boat. Also, travel bands have proven to be very popular with our clientele who suffer from travel sickness.

I would prefer to book a cabin cruiser, rather than a sailing boat- could you help?

Having strong ties to the boat charter industry in Malta means that, amongst our network of fellow sailors we are sure to find the craft of your dreams! Send in your specifications through our contact form and we will have a reply for you within 24 hours.

I haven’t been able to find accomodation during my stay in Malta, and wish to experience living on a yacht. Is this possible?

I would like to meet with my skipper in person and view the yacht before commiting to a booking. Is this possible?

At Yachting Malta your satisfaction is our main concern. As such, we are available to arrange a private tour of the yacht, docked at Pier M on the Ta’ Xbiex seafront, at your discretion. During this free consultation, we are happy to answer any questions you may have and put your concerns to rest.
