Maltese authorities for transport recently launched the Malta Passenger Yacht Code (the “Code”). This came in force on 25 May, 2021 and is a tangible sign of Malta’s commitment towards the super-yacht industry.

The Malta Passenger Yacht Code 2020 is aimed and intended for Passenger Yachts ≥ 500 GT, carrying between 12 to 36 passengers and not more than 200 persons, which do not carry cargo and which are engaged on international voyages. 

The Malta Passenger Yacht Code 2020 has been drawn up by the Authority for Transport in Malta, in consultation with various industry stakeholders including yacht designers, yacht builders, repair yards, specialised service providers and manufacturers and Appointed Surveyors and Recognised Organisations, as a wider representation of the industry.
