Privatisation of Yacht Marinas in Malta and Gozo (2009 – 2010)

Description: Until a few years ago yacht marina activities in Malta were operated exclusively by the Malta Maritime Authority (MMA), which now no longer exists as a separate entity but rather forms part of Transport Malta. In line with then stated Government policy and the Authority’s underlying raison d’etre, the MMA was to be detached from day-to-day marina operations, which was incompatible with today’s yachting scene and elevated to fulfill a regulatory role overseeing the entire yachting sector.

Against this backdrop, MIMCOL acting as advisors to the Privatisation Unit participated in the process leading to a concession for the operation and management of three yacht marina facilities then managed by the Authority:

  1. Msida Yachting Centre (Msida Gardens);
  2.  Ta’ Xbiex Yachting Centre;
  3. Mgarr (Gozo) Marina.

Companies Involved: Creek Developments Plc, Harbour Management Ltd.
