On the hard winter storage Sicily / W. Italy area

Can anyone recommend a good storage yard that can haul a 40' cat and provide safe on the hard storage for the European winter?

Aiming to finish the summer in Sicily but could look at West coast Italy / Sardinia areas as well.

All suggestions appreciated.

Marina di Ragusa's boatyard can haul out your cat and store on the dry.
Manoel Island Yacht Yard in Malta is also a possibility, they speak English!

Contacted Ragusa and they said we could only be on the hard while they were doing work on it. Will contact Manoel, thanks.

Try Crotone on the west coast. They hoist by crane. Also Riposto on Sicily may offer that service but their yard is a little small as I recall. Trapani may be another possibility. Malta also lifts by crane but I found expensive and not always responsive.

According to my knowledge a lot of UK sailors put their boats on the hard on the island of Gozo north of Malta. May be worth to investigate that possibility. Language should not be a problem
