Various were the topics discussed including the importance of the super yachts for Malta having had a long history in the maritime industry from the arrival of the Knights of the Order of St John in 1530 and thereafter, the British Navy in the 1800's. Malta is able to provide a most favourable playground for the charter market for those willing to pay for a taste of extravaganza as well as a 'one-stop shop' for the those deciding to benefit from the array of services available with its excellent facilities for refit and repairs projects apart from attractive tax incentives. There was also special emphasis on the need for further training courses to be frequently available on the island for the crew of super yachts who visit the island.
