Yachting Malta present at the Malta Maritime Summit

Yachting Malta CEO invited to contribute on Yachting and Sea Tourism

The four-day Malta Maritime Summit was hosted last week and its objective was to stimulate various debates with the scope of reaching conclusions and make proposals that would be presented to the various industry stakeholders for their consideration.

The Malta Maritime Summit welcomed prominent and influential maritime stakeholders who debated on maritime concerns and challenges facing the various sectors including the post-COVID reality, technology, environment, and finance.

The final day of the Malta Maritime summit was dedicated to Yachting and Sea Tourism, particularly the superyacht sectors. 

Malta’s potential as a cruising destination was discussed and dissected. There was a consensus on that Malta has much to offer as a cruising destination for superyachts and while small and medium berths are always at capacity, super and hyperyacht berths are usually at 30% occupancy.

The new Superyacht policy is being looked at as a tool to consolidate our Superyacht offering and make Malta a Superyacht destination of quality.

Yachting Malta CEO Michael Mifsud was a panellist on the session Is There Room for the Development of International Standard on Marinas, together with Niki Travers Tauss and Emma Cassar. The Session was moderated by Mathieu Salomon.

Yachting Malta congratulated John Gauci Maistre and his team for the excellent organisation.
