We offer the registration of vessels under the British Red Ensign, and regardless of the size of the craft, our comprehensive suite of marine services will be able to ensure that it is properly registered according to local and international regulations. We liaise with the Port of Registry on your behalf and ensure that all the relevant documentation is prepared and accurate to ensure a smooth registering of the vessel.
We will register your vessel either under your individual ownership or through a corporate structure, as best suits your individual needs, and we are able to provide you with appropriate advice as to the most cost-effective and tax-efficient option. If necessary, our Company Management Services will arrange for the incorporation of a company and proceed to manage it on your behalf.
It can be advantageous to register a vessel under a corporate structure: there is an element of confidentiality, the administrative process is simpler on sale of the vessel and there are some associated tax and asset protection advantages.
