The registration of vessels in Seychelles is governed by the Merchant Shipping Act of 1995. Seychelles is the perfect choice for luxury boat registration, because of its modern facilities, streamlined registration process and attractive tax-planning opportunities.

In addition to all the above, Seychelles is member of the United Nations, the Commonwealth, the group of non-aligned countries, the Indian Ocean Commission, and the International Maritime Organization. Ships flying the Seychelles flag get friendly treatment worldwide!
