Shipping and Yachting

Malta has established itself as a leading maritime centre offering an array of services and facilities to the shipping and yachting industry.

The Maltese shipping register is one of the most reputable registers in the world, and the Maltese flag is recognized and respected internationally. Classified on the white list of the Paris MOU the Maltese flag signifies compliance with international and European standards. This accompanied with an efficient registration system, the provision of ancillary maritime services and the availability of fiscal advantage contributes to the success of the industry.

All types of vessels from pleasure yachts to oil rigs, including vessels under construction, may be registered under the Maltese flag provided they are wholly owned by EU citizens or by duly constituted corporate entities.

Besides a merchant shipping registry, Malta has a commercial yacht registry and offers yacht-owners attractive solutions including temporary importation procedure, VAT-efficient finance leasing structures and certification of commercial yachts.
