Malta Yacht Registration Process

Submission of Documents
Yachts are first registered provisionally under the Malta flag for six months, which is extendible for a further period during which all documentation needs to be finalised. Yachts in commercial use which are 15 metres in length or more carrying passengers but not cargo can be registered as commercial, subject to compliance with the requirements of the Commercial Yacht Code.
Provisional Registration
After that the necessary documentation is provided and if the application for registration of a vessel under the Malta flag is to the satisfaction of the Authority for Transport in Malta, a non-operational Provisional Certificate of Malta Registry will be issued against payment of the relative fee. The same Authority will immediately communicate to the indicated classification society requesting inspection with a view to the issue of the relative documentation (if required).
Permanent Registration
For permanent registration to be obtained, additional documentation will be required after the first month and the sixth month of the provisional registration of the yacht. If the vessel has not been permanently registered, after a year, registration must commence anew and the appropriate forms re-submitted and fees paid anew. Additional specific requirements may be imposed by the Maltese Transport Authority. The permanent Certificate of Malta Registry is renewable on an annual basis from the date of initial registration at a fee.

What our clients have to say:

I have been using CSB Group in Malta to register our company and our ship under the Malta flag, and have always been completely satisfied with their performance. They do an excellent job, are always punctual, and offer the most competitive rates in Europe! A young and Smart team! We have also involved them on occasion for extra legal jobs, and recently I am using their accounting service to fulfil the VAT requirement and to complete our balance sheets. I'm happy to recommend the services of CSB Group.
