Pleasure Yacht Registration in Malta

Pleasure Yacht Registration in Malta

Malta has become one of the leading countries for pleasure yacht registration worldwide and has the largest yacht registry in Europe. This popularity is the result of Malta’s outstanding reputation and its quality, safety, efficiency, facilities and strategic position.

Anyone can register a Pleasure Yacht in Malta

A pleasure yacht can be registered under the Malta flag, provided that it is fully owned by either citizens of Malta or Europe, or through a corporate entity. If an EU citizen or a foreign corporation wants to register a yacht under the Malta flag, they have to be represented by a Resident Agent in Malta.

Yacht Registration Procedure

If you want to register your pleasure yacht under the Maltese Flag, the yacht will initially be granted a provisional registration certificate which is valid for a period of six months. During this six-month period, all the necessary documentation required for permanent registration are  provided. After the permanent Certificate of Malta Registry is issued, it is renewable each year at an annual fee.

Besides efficient registration and legislation, registration of a yacht under the Malta flag has several other advantages like relative low fees, low company formation costs, no restrictions on nationality of the yacht owner, and reduced VAT rates.
