The Bahamas Flag

It is no accident that The Bahamas is the flag of choice for many of the world’s finest fleets. Our reputation for quality and excellence means that we are the trusted first option flag for many of the biggest players in international shipping. They choose the Bahamas Register for many reasons –

  • because The Bahamas is a maritime nation with a long shipping tradition it understands the needs of shipowners
  • the quality of the Bahamas Register is well known and highly respected across the world
  • the fleet, which includes a wide cross section of ship types and nations, is renowned for being young and in fact the BMA actively discourages older vessels from joining the Register
  • with one of the world’s finest records for port state inspections, BMAs shipowners can be confident that their fleet will have few if any problems with inspections
  • a member of the IMO Council, The Bahamas is an active participant in the Council’s work
  • the BMA has a powerful voice in world shipping and influences the development of policies and legislation both nationally and on the international stage
  • the Authority listens to the voices of its shipowners and reflects their interests through the work of the Bahamas Shipowners Association
