Malta Yacht Marina Services

Yacht Management

Yacht management includes an enormous variety of different things. It has been said that each hour you spend on the water costs two hours of work and organisation: Boatcare’s boat management service is there to help you reduce that.

We can help you with berthing arrangements, with your emergency repairs and routine maintenance, or with your wintering needs. We can help with registering your boat under the Malta Flag, even assisting you to set up a holding company. We can even provide secretarial and connectivity services should you need them, as well as helping with travel and accommodation requirements, any laundry, and restaurant reservations.

If you know which services you need: we can enter into an agreement with you to provide a personalized maintenance and boatcare program that suits your needs, at favourable rates.

The following pages will give you an idea of the range of services we can offer you: from maintenance services to keep your boat in top running condition to a boatcare programme to make sure it's always clean; from guardienage for people who can't get down to their yacht often to a full boat management service. Just click on the service you're interested in to be taken there, or follow the links from the menu at the top of the page.

Keeping Clean

A yacht needs to be kept clean and ship-shape. It is not just that a boat looks bad when it’s dirty, it can also become corroded. Our experienced, trained crew use approved biodegradable cleaning products to obtain the best results.

Besides regular interior and exterior cleaning, we specialise in gel-coat oxidation treatments and care for the bottom of your hull, applying antifouling/anti-osmosis treatments or, where necessary, getting the bottom cleared of weed and marine growth in the water by a diver. Boat care services

Every part of your boat, be it a motor or sailing yacht, is subjected to powerful forces and stresses. The hull takes a battering, and is subjected to twisting and flexing by the sea. The fittings all take heavy loads. Even the interiors and bulkheads are stressed. Any failure can be dangerous, especially if you are at sea, miles from land or the nearest safe haven. Even something as simple as a blown fuse can immobilize your boat.

Proper, regular maintenance reduces this risk. Boatcare’s qualified and experienced staff can ensure that every part of your boat stays ship shape and in top condition.

  • Emergency repairs afloat or on the hard
