3 million euros of floating lift for yachts inaugurated



The first floating boat lift in the Mediterranean was inaugurated Thursday in Malta following an investment of 3 million euros.

Yacht Lift Malta Ltd in Marina di Valletta in Pietà will offer an environmentally friendly, efficient and tailor-made boat care and maintenance concept. It was inaugurated by Minister of Transport Ian Borg.

“We are at the forefront of the maritime sector and remain committed to redoubling our efforts to remain the leaders in this sector. We have seen great achievements, namely our Maltese flag, which has almost 1000 registered superyachts. This yacht lift offers a unique concept for the care and maintenance of boats for the Mediterranean region, ”he said at the inauguration.

He added that the yacht lift had already attracted foreign boat owners from countries around the Mediterranean and Europe, who found it more convenient to use Yacht Lift Malta rather than foreign shipyards.

“We are committed to staying up to date and implementing the best technology so that the Maltese flag truly remains the best in Europe in the maritime industry and continues to attract more investment to our country,” he said. -he declares.

This yacht lift offers boat owners the option of taking their boat out to sea rather than on land, saving them time and money, while reducing waiting times. Its innovative system offers the latest technology in yacht lifting systems putting as little stress as possible on the hull of the boat, as the vessel is lifted by the keel instead of the straps, thus avoiding any damage.

Yacht Lift Malta CEO Daniel Gatt said the lift is ideal for surveys, hull cleaning and emergency repairs, as well as for comprehensive maintenance packages that include upkeep of the hull, mechanical services as well as polishing and cleaning, among others.

He said the patented design puts the environment at the forefront of development, which allows for full containment of all waste produced on board and is handled by a certified water treatment plant. All the waste collected is then disposed of in specialized wastewater treatment plants, which means that no waste ends up at sea.
