International Ship Owners

Foreign corporate bodies and individuals who are citizens of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are qualified to own Maltese ships in their own name.

A non-Maltese owner must however appoint a Resident Agent in Malta to act on its behalf prior to the registration of the yacht or vessel on the Maltese Register.

CSB Group provides Resident Agent services to clients requiring such representation.

Bareboat Charter Registration

A Maltese registered vessel may be registered under bareboat charter under a foreign flag and a non-Maltese registered vessel is eligible to be registered under bareboat charter under the Maltese flag, if the vessel in question is registered in a compatible registry.

CSB Group is geared to provide bespoke advice on your shipping structures and any needs with respect to the bareboat in or out of your vessel.

In order to obtain permanent registration certain documentation will be required and it is important to note that the MSD may impose additional specific requirements depending on the different types of vessels. The permanent Certificate of Malta Registry is renewable on an annual basis and an annual fee is due to MSD. Renewal is due annually from the date of initial registration.

This is to express my absolute satisfaction in my dealings with Amanda Camilleri and Sacha Farrugia in the process of opening my company over the last few weeks. I was really blown away with their level of proffessionalism and customer service. They both went above and beyond to ensure that all of my questions and curiosities were met and understood, and their level of knowledge was excellent. I never had to wait for a call or email, when they said they would call they did, and I think that they are both great assets to your company. I would have no problem recommending your company to others in the future, and will continue to use your services myself purely based on my dealings with these two.
