Berthing

The Yachting Centres at Msida Creek and Mgarr Gozo are presently operated by the Yachting Centres Directorate of Transport Malta (the local authority). However plans are in the pipeline to privatise the berths in line with the governments’ privatisation policy.

The Grand Harbour Marina, the Manoel Island Marina and the Portomaso Marina are all privately owned entities which provide other alternatives for visiting yachtsmen.

 

The Msida Marina

The Msida Marina is positioned in the innermost part of Marsamxett Harbour.  The building of the breakwater across the entrance has created a very safe and well sheltered marina.  Berthing is provided on 15 lines of the floating pontoons, providing 700 berths for vessels up to 18 metres, in length on double mooring lines.

Water and electricity is available at every berth. Showers, toilets, and restaurants are all found at the Administration Office Block. The location of the marina, in close proximity to banks, hotels, restaurants, and shops, makes it easier for visiting yachtsmen.

 

The Mgarr Marina (Gozo)

The Mgarr Marina consists of 208 berths. It provides an ideal stop-over for anyone visiting Gozo or cruising around the Maltese Islands. The Island is one third the size of Malta, but greener and more rural. Its landscape is characterized by hills and deep valleys as well as rugged cliffs which give natural fortification to the islands’ small harbours and inlets. No wonder visitors find it enchanting and romantic.

 

Grand Harbour Marina

Grand Harbour Marina is run by the world renowned Camper & Nicholsons. It is positioned on the East coast of Malta and located within one of the largest deep water natural harbours in the world. Superbly serviced, sheltered and secure, it caters for yachts up to 100m LOA and offers everything one expects from a fully-fledged modern marina.

 

Manoel Island Marina

Manoel Island Marina is situated to the South side of Manoel Island and about half a nautical mile from the main entrance to Marsamxett Creek. The marina consists of approximately 80 berths on pontoons and stern to quay. The maximum draft is of 5m whereas the maximum length is that of 80m.

 

Portomaso Marina 

Portomaso Marina is situated to the North of the Grand Harbour entrance adjacent to St. Julian’s Bay. The main landmark to the approach is the unique 23-storey tower exactly above the Marina.

Its entrance is marked with port and starboard continuous flashing approach lights and the fairway with orange marker buoys marking depth of 4m between these and the breakwater.

The marina comprises of three basins; namely North, South and West Basin. The North Basin is for small crafts and water sports operation, the South Basin accommodates up to 45 sailing boats to a maximum length of 16m whereas the West Basin accommodates up to 60 motor cruisers to a maximum of 16m. In case of larger crafts these can be accommodated alongside on the quayside at the inner fairway.
