Vella Marine Malta and One2One Shipping Malta are now working together to provide a wide range of compatible yacht and superyacht services. The two companies have been working together since late last year and their services were given an international launch at the Dubai International Boat Show.

One2One Shipping Malta has a strong financial base and engages in company formations, ownership structures, yacht registration, bank finance consultation, accounting and tax/VAT services. It is also active as a yacht agency, offering technical help including surveys, yacht management and crewing services.

Vella Marine Malta covers yacht management, refit management, yacht deliveries and a full package of yacht support and agency services including concierge, chandlery and bunkering.

Edwin Vella, managing director of Vella Marine, told SB: “We decided some time ago to work together on offering a full range of yacht services. One2One and ourselves want to do this to promote the benefits which Malta can provide to the superyacht sector.”

Arthur Turner, a business consultant with One2One, said: “Malta has some clear advantages when it comes to superyachts with the registration and financial environment it provides. By joining forces we are able to provide a very comprehensive range of services. We are planning to join the Malta Superyacht Industry Network.”
