We simply can’t believe what a fantastic year its been at Prosailing Malta. 2019 was off the charts, with new records, new students, great courses and even a brand new addition to our growing family. Robert welcomed a baby daughter into his family! Hannah is already keen to learn the ropes – another new addition to the nautical family.
We have a new boat!
As Prosailing Malta grows and grows we added a super new boat to the fleet so we can continue to grow and certify more sailors and boatsmen alike. She’s a Beneteau Oceanis 393 from 2002 and performs in a similar way to our other Oceanis, Dovecote. She’s got three cabins and is equipped with two heads and makes a good training vessel.
The Oceanis 393 is designed by naval architects Jean Berret and Olivier Racopeau, and this build blends together two worlds: comfort and sail-ability. The overall height of the vessel is comfortable, space inside is ample, and the cockpit too feels large, providing you with entertaining space and good enough reach for your lines and winches.
Beneteau sum it up: “The Oceanis 393 is a real concentration of the art of living on a cruise. With healthy behaviour and easy manoeuvring, the Oceanis Clipper 393 is well-suited to sailing with a small crew. The symbol of this new Oceanis generation is designed exclusively for your sailing pleasure.”
The idea of having another sailing boat in time for a massive 2020 is both exciting and challenging but this gives Prosailing Malta more flexibility in its course offerings, charters on the low season and this way we can keep up with the high demand, while not compromising on quality. Both boats are known for being intuitive to learn, and both are maintained to the highest standards, ready to assist you in getting certified. We’ve run new lines, and will also be taking them on the hard to do the necessary hull work, keeping them nice, clean and streamlined. Both vessels passed inspections this year, making us very proud and happy in the knowledge that we operate at such high standards of quality.
Robert summed up the year: “2019 has been a very successful year so far with RYA Day Skipper courses and Competent Crew courses running every week, with demand for more. In 2020 will have 2 boats running nearly each week to keep up with demand and can’t wait to get started already”
He’s happy, he’s excited but as most of us are at this time of the year, a little sentimental too. A new addition to his family means a bundle of joy, energy and love and something extremely fun to go back home to after each day of hard work.
The business is growing, and when you think back to the humble beginnings of Prosailing Malta, we can all agree to raise a glass in a toast to Robert, and his growing family.
To make matters even better the reviews from our clients have been coming in, and it is extremely pleasurable to receive positive feedback from everyone that steps onto our boats. We have a 4.9 rating on our Facebook page, where even our cooking gets mentioned in a positive light – which is brilliant as we know the devil is in the detail and we keep going the extra nautical mile for our clients.
Thank you for joining our epic adventure in 2019 and we look forward to more of your support and good vibes as we cruise into what will be a busy but productive 2020. We’ve got more courses for you and will have more students than ever before which will mean more smiles, laughter and more certified sailors and boatsmen. As we look ahead to 2020, setting our New Year resolutions will be fun, as we vow to continue to maintain our standards, and continue to be safe out at sea. We will create more and more memories, and we already can’t wait to get the ball rolling.
