WELCOME ABOARD MAZU
Forbidden City® at Sea is our hospitality concept that extends our hotel and yacht club service to the Mediterranean. Using Mazu, our 53 foot long Maltese flagged Grand Banks yacht, we will graciously transport you to the neighboring islands of Gozo, Camino and Fifla as well as to neighboring Sicily for day or overnight trips. Our expert butlers and dive valets will be with you every step of the way, showing you incredible sights both above and below the waterline that no normal tourist to the Maltese islands can ever see.
Experience world class, hand crafted farm to table, locally sourced cusine that our Swiss trained butlers prepare and serve whilst you relax or enjoy water sports using all of Mazu’s on board toys. Whilst our menus are tailored to your liking, we offer exclusive Swiss wines from our very own vines as well as other exclusive delicacies not normally found in Malta. Enjoy our legendary, nuanced service that even the competition talks about.
And when you’re ready to relax, the spacious interior with two bedroom and two bathroom configuration, featuring the finest Forbidden City Belgian hand sewn bed linens is the perfect home away from home. Thoughtful touches and intriguing elements of luxury from the Forbidden City collection encapsulate you as you sail with us whether for a day or a week.
Mazu is the name of a mythical Sea Goddess. Now embodied in this Grand Bank’s hull number 88, her maker is renowned for meticulous craftsmanship, superior construction techniques and the highest quality standards. Holding substantial fuel, with a powerful engine plant, stabiliser technology, and state of the art navigation equipment, Mazu is capable of traveling from Malta to Sicly and beyond. She also has a CE rating and is a highly capable cruiser.
Mazu was originally built for a member of the board of Grand Banks to exacting standards. Whilst a safe and sturdy vessel, she has been factory equipped and modified with many unique options that make cruising and extended stays on board a true pleasure.
