I decided to build up a Malta Leasing Scheme and was looking for a serious and reliable law firm on Malta, supporting me at site with various operative services and working with us as partners under our mandate.

Assessing a few alternatives, I decided for Chetcuti Cauchi, who could offer me the required support over all relevant matters to realize the concept in time.

Together we set up the Yacht Holding Limited, the lease scheme and the VAT model and passed through various surveys and programs as well as preparing all in a manner to enable the client leaving Malta within one weeks stay in Malta.

The cooperation was professional and with high awareness to my briefing, controlling and stakes given during the process. We can only win client's satisfaction when understanding his very personal needs and matching them with as little complications as possible and especially in time. Our VIP client did not want to spend his summer yacht season with bureaucracy, but with the pleasure of his new yacht and cruising in the Mediterranean.

I think after this pilot, we will build up a regular partnership with CC for future Malta projects for SuperYachts.
