Yacht Charters

NAUTICA LTD have been established in the Marine Industry since 1988 and is today acknowledged as the leading provider of Yacht Charter holidays in the Maltese Islands and Beyond . The company owns a fleet of modern sailing yachts which are available either as Bare-boat or sailed by our seasoned qualified skippers. Our yachts are available in three , four and five cabin versions and some also have a separate Skippers Cabin.

All our yachts have been Insured for commercial use and have also been licensed by Transport Malta.

You may charter for a day , a weekend or for a week and one may sail around the Maltese Islands or beyond . We also charter a small selection of Motor Boats.

The concept of yacht charter as a family holiday is fairly new to Malta, although it is fast becoming an alternative and cost effective way of enjoying boating without the costs and headaches of having your own boat. Utilizing a yacht from a yacht charter company offers the opportunity for both the experienced and inexperienced yachtsman the freedom to sail in many Mediterranean locations, exploring new coastal towns and bays while having your accommodation with you, making it a convenient way to travel both locally and even overseas to various other places like Sicily, Pantelleria, Lampedusa or Tunisia subject to the time available and your budget.

For those who do not have the sailing experience or would like to have a skipper on board, they can take up this option from the charter company at minimal cost, this would allow you to have local knowledge from the skipper regarding your cruising area such as anchorages, bay and marina’s, along with the best places to eat and drink.

Nautica offer a range of new sailing yachts for charter, accommodating up to 10 guests for overnight charters, all cabins have double berths and most include ensuite facilities, these yachts were built specifically with charter guests in mind making them easy to sail with all sail controls leading to the cockpit, and twin wheels leaving a clear access to the large cockpit area. All the vessels are equipped with all the required safety equipment and are certified by Transport Malta for bareboat or skippered yacht charter and both vessel and guests onboard are fully insured. The fleet is maintained to the highest standard by our team who work to a maintenance plan to ensure that the yachts are kept in as new condition until they are replaced after about three or four years so as to ensure that our clients always have new vessels available.
