As an international centre of excellence in the maritime industry, Malta offers a range of international maritime services and facilities as part of a comprehensive package for the yachting industry.

Also, the Malta flag administration offers yacht owners and builders comprehensive support during the build process to ensure compliance from the very early design stages through to completion.

Ganado Advocates has a leading team of professional advisors with a range of expertise and industry specific experience that advise and assist yacht owners and their financiers with all transactions involving yachts and superyachts, including registration and leasing.

We assist clients in compliance with the requirements imposed by the Commercial Yacht Code as administered by the Merchant Shipping Directorate within Transport Malta.

We can assist in switching from a commercial to a pleasure yacht and vice versa and in registering racing yachts and historical yachts as well as by providing tailored advice related to tax planning and lease structures.
