Selecting a flag for the vessel is a complex process and with an increasing number of flags available to choice is becoming more and more complicated for owners to make a decision.
Ship registration is the procedure of documenting a ship's agreed nationality. Every merchant ship must be registered to a particular country. The country to which a ship is registered is called its “flag state.”
We offer a very comprehensive service that incorporates all aspects of ship registration and assisting to ship-owners in selecting the best Flag and Class for their fleet.
