There are numerous reasons why Malta is considered as one of the favourite EU choices for a superyacht's corporate, registration and tax establishment. These include its strategic location in the centre of the Mediterranean, skilled and efficient Authorities, a stable political jurisdiction, an advantageous legal and tax framework, an accessible and flexible regulator, a "can do" attitude, and an industry of hard working professionals.

The Maltese culture is one of getting things done and this is very much the attitude taken by the Dominion Marine team in Malta when it comes to the services we offer our clients. Dominion Marine (Malta) Limited offers expertise in areas of ownership structures, flag registration, tax structures, financing, crewing, technical and management services. We hold at heart the safeguard of our client's best interest and ensure proper attention and individuality of purpose to each case.
