Among its wide range of Maritime facilities and services, Malta boasts an active and reputable International Ship Registry which currently ranks as the largest merchant flag in Europe and the sixth worldwide.
All types of vessels, trading or under construction, as well as Yachts, Superyachts and Cruise Liners may be registered under the Malta Flag provided that they are wholly owned by Maltese citizens or Maltese Shipping Companies. “International Owners” may also register vessels under the Malta Flag provided that they appoint a local “Resident Agent” in Malta. Flagport offers the services of a “Resident Agent”. The formation of a Malta shipping company is a straightforward process with no restrictions on the nationality of shareholders and directors.
