The Von der Heyden Group, an international investment firm eminent in almost 20 cities around Europe, has launched a luxury Yacht Charter company based in Malta. For more than the last 30 years, the Group has made its mark in prominent locations through national real estate developments including A-Class commercial, residential buildings as well as the rehabilitation of landmark sites. The Von der Heyden Group has also spearheaded several successful real estate investment programs, including a luxury real estate agency operating in Sardinia, Von der Heyden Real Estate, a 9-hotel hospitality franchise, IBB Hotel Collection and Cugó Gran as well as a 4-establishment restaurant and catering company,  Hammett’s Collection.

Von der Heyden Yachting Ltd anchors an exclusive fleet of Ferretti Yachts moored in Malta, Sardinia and Menorca and will specialise in creating bespoke experiences to destinations around the Mediterranean.

With a history and heritage in luxury real estate and hospitality, the Group has over three decades maintained its status and commitment in delivering first-class innovations and exponential growth for shareholders and business partners. Von der Heyden Yachting is a natural offshoot and complementary addition to the Group’s subsidiaries, stemming from a personal passion and a deep appreciation of the sea. Our specialised Yachting company is not only distinguished by its mission to deliver unparalleled luxury experiences, but also through the truly unique and customised journeys for our clients in remote and magical locations around the Mediterranean.

Sven von der Heyden, Founder and Chairman, Von der Heyden Group

Von der Heyden’s Yachting fleet is in Puerto Portals (Mallorca), Poltu Quatu (Sardinia) and the Grand Harbour Marina in Malta where the ultra-luxurious 29 meter Riva Argo yacht is moored. It is also where one of the Group’s luxury hotels is situated (Cugó Gran Macina Grand Harbour) as well as the marina where the Group installed the island’s first seabin in the Capital’s harbour. Bespoke charters are offered around the Balearic Islands, the Costa Smeralda and Sardinia or further afield on board the flagship 29 meter Riva Yacht. The Malta-based luxury Yacht charter company offers 5 types of water sport options on board (depending on yacht type) and a specialised, highly trained crew with decades of worldly yacht charter expertise, combined with an impeccable hospitality experience.

This week, the Group has launched its website for multiple markets: www.vonderheydenyachting.com
