Yacht and Shipping Registration

Our team can provide various yacht and ship registration services, from the formation of a corporate asset holding vehicle through the registration process with the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (“CISR”). In the majority of cases, a Cayman Islands exempted company can be established as a special purpose vehicle in order to meet the qualified requirements set out in the application Forms.

The CISR is a division of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands. The CISR is a British port of registry, meaning that all vessels registered with CISR are designated British ships and may therefore fly the Cayman Islands Marine Ensign.

The procedure to establish a Cayman Islands exempted company is quick and easy: the incorporation is effected on the day the registration documents are filed with the Cayman Islands Registrar of Companies.
