The nearby superyacht shipyard has the capacity to service, maintain, refit and repair some of the largest ships afloat. It includes a 160m long graving dock and a 140m covered dock, all provided with shore services, workshops, storage facilities and offices for the administration and crew.
By Air – Grand Harbour Marina is only 15 minutes from Malta International Airport – with direct flights to most major European cities. There are also facilities for chartered and private jets.
By Sea – The marina is accessible day or night in all weather conditions and our team provides 24-hour berthing assistance.
On approach, the breakwater with St Elmo lighthouse located at its eastern end is easy to identify. Leave this to starboard, and the short breakwater off Fort Ricasoli to port. Fort St Angelo is then rounded to port to enter the final approach channel, which is marked with small red and green buoys. Call us on VHF channel 13 for berthing instructions.
Yachts should also contact Valletta Port Control on channel 12 when 12 miles out, and may be asked to call again one mile from the entrance, depending on the movement of commercial traffic within the harbour.
Regulations – Visitors arriving from other countries within the European Union are required to complete the form supplied by the Capitainerie, with vessel registration details and a crew list.
Yachts arriving from outside the EU need to clear through Malta’s Customs and Immigration. Officials will usually visit the yacht at Grand Harbour Marina to complete this.
Any passengers or crew leaving the yacht in Malta and departing by other means are required to have their passport stamped by Immigration on arrival.
