Maritime and Shipping
Malta boasts one of the leading and largest Ship Registries in the world. It is a flexible registry, imposing very few restrictions. The success Malta has achieved in this industry is due to a well-balanced structure of maritime services and fiscal incentives coupled with the Government’s desire to promote the industry, which it seeks to achieve by means of numerous attractive benefits to ship owners. The Maltese Ship Registry includes all types of ships including oil-rigs, pleasure yachts and passenger cruise ships amongst others.
