The tonnage tax and the beneficial VAT are central considerations why yacht owners choose the Malta flag. However, there are more aspects that have been beneficial for yacht owners, including the lack of restrictions on the nationality of the yacht owner or in the captain’s and the rest of the crew and the crew employment and social security contributions scheme.
Asset V supports yacht owners with registration under the Malta flag, by appointing Asset V as resident agent to act on behalf of client. The owner can be an individual, a foreign legal entity or corporation which owns a yacht.

We assist yachts that are based anywhere in the world!

The yacht’s location is a factor that will not affect the registration process, as Asset V has connections with many European surveyors approved by Transport Malta that can travel in the yacht’s location and make sure that the applicable regulations are adhered to.
Asset V manages the entire flag registration process step-by-step as head of project management as well as coordinating all players involved in the registration such as surveyor, Transport Malta, previous Port of Registry for the flag deletion, lawyers and any others in order to make the process easier, faster and avoid any headaches to the yacht interests.
