The Ship-Registry : EUROMAR

EUROMAR is assisting ship managers in all matters regarding MAR - The International Shipping Register of Madeira, based on Madeira / Portugal. It is a register of highest quality standards and developing an innovative online system to ensure an efficient monitoring of all vessels registered. Ships registered in MAR will fly the Portuguese ensign and operate with the homeport “Madeira“.

Why Portugal?

The Need for an EU-Flag

The EU has given incentives for European ship owners to fly the flags of EU member states. For a number of years, most EU member states applied the tonnage tax scheme that strengthened their competitiveness in the world. According to the Community Guidelines on State Aid to maritime transport (p. C13/7), ship owners benefit from the scheme if they have at least 60% of their tonnage under EU flags.
