It is possible for owners of superyachts flying a non-EU flag, who are non-EU residents and who wish to use their private yachts temporarily in EU waters, to place their yacht under Temporary Importation via Malta. This procedure requires the yacht in question to call at Malta and be subjected to Temporary Importation with the Maltese customs authorities. The owner would subsequently be able to use his yacht freely in EU waters, and therefore the yacht can move from one Member State to another with no further customs formalities, for the permitted period of 18 months.


In both instances, we are able to advise owners on the best possible course of action and offer reliable and sustained assistance from beginning to end in guiding owners through the various motions with a view to ensuring a swift and efficient completion of the relative procedures.
