Record number of Super Yachts at Vittoriosa Grand Harbour Marina

Grand Harbour Marina hosted 159 super yachts last year, an increase compared to 2014. The increase has been attributed to awareness of the spectacular views and great facilities.

“Undoubtedly, the location of Grand Harbour Marina set against the timeless backdrop of historical fortifications of Fort St Angelo and Valletta make our marina one of the most spectacular in the region,” Grand Harbour Marina chairman Lawrence Zammit told the Times of Malta. Mr Zammit said that the marina’s “top notch” services, as well as its proximity to amenities further contributed to its popularity with super yacht owners and crews.
