Choosing the right Port of Registry for your needs is crucial. Different flags mean different rules and obligations, which can directly influence requirements, taxes and overall enjoyment of your yacht.
As an important maritime hub, Gibraltar is an attractive jurisdiction for the registration of yachts, which are registered under the British Flag and fly the Red Ensign. The Red Ensign is recognised globally for maintaining high standards, maritime safety and seafarers' welfare.
