The Melita Marine Group was founded in 1989 offering basic yachting services. Following initial success, an expansion plan was drawn with the goal of offering a comprehensive range of yachting services in Malta. These services included refit management, agency, yacht brokerage, yacht charter, customs clearance, duty free supplies and bunkering. After gaining invaluable experience and a vast understanding of the Maltese yachting market, we soon recognised the huge potential of Malta to become a major player in the Mediterranean Yachting Industry.
This lead to Melita Power Diesel being set up in 1998, which was the result of the buyout of Marine Industrial Repairs, offering the services of engine repair, overhauling and reconditioning. Following through the success of Melita Power Diesel Ltd, Melita Yacht Painters Ltd, representing AWLGRIP, was set up in 1999 with a professional team of 8 painters.
The Group’s strategy then focused on expansion, both in the services offered collectively as well as expanding the Group’s international reach.
