End of March and end of September are the roughest months for the moored boats because of the strong winds and waves. Boats may get damaged because of unfriendly conditions. To make sure it never happens, choose winter-friendly marinas like the Grand Harbour Marina, in Valletta, Portomaso in St Julian’s, Ta’Xbiex, Msida and Manuel Island Marinas, Lazzaretto and Sliema Creeks, MarsaxlokkBay, Pretty Bay and many more. Choose by most convenient location and never stress out about your lady on the waves in winter time- she will be just fine.

For the best experience ever check if your chosen Marina provides full boat maintenance service. They may wash your boat, fill it up on fuel and do other necessary service. Many Marinas in Malta are located around most beautiful villages, choose one you like the best and hang out in your clean, ready to go yacht all year around here in Malta.
