The Maltese archipelago, in the very center of Mediterranean, more precisely south of Sicily and north of Africa, consists of several islands and islets, three of which are inhabited – Malta, Gozo and Comino. The island of Malta is of course the largest of them and considering its geografical postion in heart of Mediterranean, it is not surprising that it has become a destination with highly developed nautical tourism. Over time, Malta has become destination for all who move through Suez canal and is permanent destination for all cruises in the Mediterranean waters.
In 2003 Marinetek has built the largest marina in the capital city Valetta – Grand Harbour Marina, and recently also a marina in service center Kalkara which makes great references for all future projects of building and reconstruction of marinas in that area. Despite the new situation with the pandemic of coronavirus, in April this year Marinetek has successfully built and delivered pontoons with additional equipment for a completely new marina, Gardens Yacht marina Malta.
