Cayman Islands Yacht Registration

As a Category 1 British register, the Cayman Islands are qualified to register yachts of all sizes.

There are three Cayman Islands port of registry:

  • George Town
  • The Creek
  • Bloody Bay

The legislation governing ship registration in the Cayman Islands is based on the Merchant Shipping Acts of the United Kingdom as extended to the Cayman Islands and amended and supplemented by local statute and regulations.

The Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR) maintains a head office in the Cayman Islands; a European Regional Office in Southampton, UK in addition to representatives in the United States; London, UK; Greece; Monaco; Italy; Tokyo, Japan; Hong Kong and Singapore, enabling convenient and cost-effective client services.

The Cayman Islands are the number one offshore register for super yachts, with an estimated 15% of the world fleet of yachts over 30m (100ft).

In the range of yachts over 40m (130ft), some 20% of the world’s fleet is registered in the Cayman Islands.
