"The Malta International Boating & Yachting Awards have become a highlight on the region's yachting calendar since being launched and were created to address the super yacht industry in particular, although this first edition gathers a comprehensive category system unrivalled in its objectives and also its broad vision. We are delighted that these Awards will be held following the Rolex Middle Sea Race, where all the industry's leaders are gathered each year. It will be a special occasion for everyone involved. This is not a politically driven cow, but a genuine award programme created by people who have a passion and vast experience in the boat and yachting industry," said Martin Vella, Editor-In-Chief and Managing Director of MBR Publications Ltd.

"Welcome to a great launch this year on board the SY Aresteas thanks to Oceanus Marine Ltd and Yildizmar Yachting! This year we will get together and plan to make our Islands a super yacht destination - Malta - to celebrate the success of the brands, builders, marina and clubs, companies and individuals. We are glad to see that the increasing number of Maltese HNWIs have accepted this lifestyle in the past years and tried to get more involved in the sailing regattas, offshore cruising, boat parties and other sea-related activities. We hope all our partners will benefit from this potential market and enjoy the first edition of Malta International Boating & Yachting Awards."
