The Bahamas Fleet

The Bahamas has a diverse and varied portfolio of ships registered across a range of market sectors. The registry has developed an in-depth knowledge and understanding of each sector’s specific needs.

Perhaps best known for its world class cruise fleet, in fact passenger ships make up just 13% of ship numbers on the Bahamas Register. General cargo accounts for 5%, tankers 14% and bulk carriers 18%. The Bahamas is also proud of its technical expertise in supporting the offshore industry – offshore oil and gas support vessels alone account for 13% of the vessels registered with the Flag.
