Since Malta’s position is at the centre of the Mediterranean, Malta has established itself to serve as a natural maritime hub for the shipping industry. This, combined with Malta’s reputation of having a reliable and competent shipping industry, has led Malta to be the largest ship register in the European Union and also the sixth-largest in the world. Malta is an attractive jurisdiction for shipping registration as it is cost-effective when it comes to shipping registration and company formation and it does not impose any restrictions on the type of vessels which can be registered under its flag.
