The name ‘RLR Yachting’ is synonymous with sailing on the unique island of Malta. With a rich history of the sport entrenched in the very spirit of this company, we have culminated all our experience and passion to try and provide the best service possible to our community.

Sailing, bailing and cocktailing!

The formula is right; experience and knowledge brought back to the island from all corners of the earth. The soul of RLR was born on the sea, the passion for sailing is a force to be reckoned with. Once the Ripards and Mr. Larvan got together to start the first chandler in Malta, the yachting industry could really kick off. Now, we supply equipment for boats, from Optimist and Laser sailors, all the way up to 200-Metre Super-yachts finding themselves in our Grand Harbour.

The one-stop-shop for Captains, Enthusiasts and budding Mariners.

Our store is located in Gzira just in front of one of the most beautiful marina areas in the country. Overlooking Manoel Island and close to all marine operations, the shop is the perfect showcase for our pivotal brands. The sea is host to so much more than just a few enthusiasts enjoying a day out, people of all different shapes and sizes enjoy all manner of activities on the water. It is an identity we love to share, so come on down for some retail therapy with a difference!

Service with a smile ツ

All of our mechanics are certified by the governing body of the specific brand they are going to be helping you with. BRP, Volvo Penta and Raymarine have strict parameters within which their regional representatives must work. We pride ourselves in our service capabilities, tools, know-how and initiative.  Some people prefer to work on their boats themselves, a commendable trait and something we can help you with, just pop in to our parts department located next to our retail store and select the items you need. The front desk staff are educated in the workings of all the engines in our care and would be eager to give you advice.

A legacy embedded in the sea, locally and abroad.

The Ripard name has been echoed through Yacht Clubs and Race Regattas around the world. John Ripard Snr. is a decorated veteran in the sailing world, from being an America’s Cup Judge to founding the Rolex Middle Sea Race, his efforts contributed to a vibrant industry on the island.
