The Bahamas Maritime Authority has extensive experience in the registration of all types of vessels and units that are regarded as an Offshore vessel, this includes construction, drilling, storing and production of hydrocarbons offshore.  

Our broad portfolio of Offshore vessels and units includes;

  • Anchor Handling Tug / Towing Supply Vessels (AHT/AHTS)
  • Platform Supply Vessels (PSV)
  • Construction Accommodation and Wind

Currently The BMA is market leader in the Offshore sector by Gross Tonnage and Dead Weight Tons and has 9,268,000GT (13,694,000 DWT) of Offshore vessels registered under The Bahamas flag. This number continues to rise due to the increasing demand for offshore support vessels which is being driven by the uptake in offshore drilling activity, rising deep-water development activities, increasing crude oil demand, increasing offshore decommissioning activities, and other influential market factors.
