MARITIME LAW NEWS: Malta Enjoys Largest Shipping Register in Europe

Monday, 23 January 2012 02:03

Clarkson Research Services have confirmed that Malta's Shipping Register is the seventh largest worldwide and the largest in Europe.

Till the end of 2011, the Maltese Shipping Register registered an increase of over 6 million gross tonnage representing an impressive growth of 16.1 % over 2010. Indeed, the highest gross tonnage so registered with the Malta's Shipping Register is 45.6 million which includes an ever increasing number of yachts and superyachts given the excellent berthing facilities provided in Malta in particular by Grand Harbour Marina which enjoys an international reputation. Another reason for Malta's success story in the maritime sector is the attractive tax regime it offers for those wishing to register their vessels with the Maltese Shipping Register.

Tanti-Dougall & Associates, Advocates provide for yacht and ship registration as well as for berthing facilities.
