Maritime Administration

For more than seven decades, Gibraltar has played a significant role in vessel registration. In 1997, it achieved Category 1 Red Ensign Status, granting the authority to register vessels of all types and tonnages. The Gibraltar Maritime Administration (GMA) manages both the ship and yacht registers on behalf of His Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar. The Registry is "whitelisted" within the Paris MoU on Port State Control.

As an ISO 9001 certified organisation, our registers operate efficiently and consistently in accordance with international best practices. We offer a credible, prestigious and user friendly register, based on a well-established legal system based on English law and which operates in a low tax environment serviced by very skilled and experienced professionals. We offer excellent customer support and the benefits we offer are accessible to owners from around the globe.
