About Oceanskies

As well as having headquarters located in the heart of St. Peter Port harbour in Guernsey we also have offices in Malta and representation in Jersey, the Isle of Man, the United Kingdom, Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

We register yachts of all sizes in all of the main yacht registry jurisdictions including the British Register of Ships, (principally in the UK, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man and Jersey), as well as Malta and the Marshall Islands.

We provide a full range of supporting services for the documentation of yachts including tonnage surveys, commercial coding, radiolicensing, customs paperwork and statutory certification.  We also provide a full range of agency and concierge services to yachts visiting both the Channel Islands and Malta.

Oceanskies also provides yacht crew employment and payroll outsourcing from both Guernsey and Malta through Oceanskies Crew.

The marine services provided by Oceanskies are also mirrored in the world of private and corporate aviation through Oceanskies Aero.

We work on behalf of yacht and aircraft owners as well as assisting colleagues in the marine and aviation industries and acting as a subcontractor of choice for legal, tax, trust, estate and wealth management professionals.
