About Us - History

about_us history Gallery about_us fleet


Tony Banis, the founder of this company had his first two meters rowing boat when he was just 8 years old.  Since then, he started having his dreams.  When he was eleven years of age, Tony had a two and a half meter wooden boat with a seagull 40 plus (2.5hp).  Since then, there was no turning back and looked for a brighter future.  Practically, Tony realised that he cannot live without a boat.

Tony started the business on the 15 of July 1973 with only one speedboat 50hp engine.  He used to teach water skiing and organized trips around St.Julian's Bay.  it was not an easy start because he had to do everything by himself.  he worked hard and took the business quite seriously.  From that time onwards, his aim was to increase the fleet to what it is today. 

Nowadays Tony and his son Ian are at the helm of the company and are currently introducing several new services.  Daily trips are being organized to Comino Blue Lagoon and to Gozo from March to November weather permitting.  The company is also organising the famous bbq nights, sunset trips and boat parties.  Other watersports is being offered such as parakiting, water skiing and also hiring canoes, self drive boats and private cabin cruiser/ sailing boat charters.
