Ship Registration and Maritime Law

Ship Registration and Maritime Law

The ship registration procedures and requirements have undergone significant changes during the last decade, especially with the introductions of marinas in the Federation, and therefore it is very important that the ship owners, charterers and vessel operators maintain an established and efficient administration in today’s dynamic marine industry.

Our lawyers are versed in the operations of the St. Kitts and Nevis International Ship Registry. We provide our clients with registration services that are compatible with the operation of the vessels. We provide services for:

  • Vessel searches;
  • Bareboat Charter registration;
  • Flag registrations and transfer procedures;
  • Name change procedures;
  • Renewal of vessel registration; and
  • Mortgage registration and removal.

We offer all-inclusive solutions, for example, we are able to assist vessels with options for docking, charter agreements, vessel sale and purchase arrangements and vessel arrest and detention claims.

Our lawyers also guide and advise clients on the content and interpretation of applicable international conventions, rules and regulations.
