Vessel and yacht registration

Owners have the ultimate choice of where to register their vessel, with a variety of options open to them depending on personal, technical and financial preferences.

In the past ships and yachts were often registered with the owner’s nation state but 'flags of convenience' are often used today for financial, tax or administration purposes.

A number of quality ‘flag state’ alternatives are available. One of the most popular is the UK’s Red Ensign, along with other members of the Red Ensign Group such as Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar and Isle of Man. Other registries include France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Panama, Spain, USA, and various others in the Caribbean and Far East.
