Oceanskies specialises in the registration of yachts of all sizes and all types in high quality ‘yacht friendly’ jurisdictions such as the British & Maltese Registers of Ships.
We believe that our success results from understanding that the circumstances of every yacht owner and every yacht are unique.
Choice of registry is one of the most important decisions that a yacht owner has to make.
The chosen port of registry will determine the nationality of the vessel and the laws and regulations that will apply to its operation.
The flag flown and the port of registry inscribed on the stern of the vessel provides the vessel with an identity – a strong well-founded flag will suggest a lot about the owner and the standards to which the vessel is operated.
We endeavour to provide clear advice to owners on the best flag to choose based on their individual circumstances and provide fully inclusive fixed fee yacht registration packages to relieve yacht owners of the administrative burden of the registration process.
There are many flags internationally promoting themselves as the ‘go to’ flag of choice, but we’re here to provide an unbiased opinion on the best flag for you taking into account many parameters including; navigational rights, VAT and US cruising permit eligibility.
We work for all of the yacht friendly flag states and through our experience can outline why one may suit your requirements better than another.
To help simplify the choice process we have created the following yacht registry selector, which you can complete in order to receive further information on our recommended flag for your yacht.
