Why Portugal?

EUROMAR represents 3 values:



The Flag Administration is committed to principles of quality shipping and compliance. All types of merchant vessels can be found under Portuguese flag for a long time: Crude Oil, Product & Chemical Carriers, Bulk Carriers, Container Vessels, MPP, Gas Tankers, Cruiseships, etc. The flag has long been accepted in the global shipping industry.

The Administration is restrictive in allowing the entry of vessels that do not fulfill the requirements in terms of safety and security. Track records of vessels will be reviewed as well as of shipmanagers. Single Hull Tankers are not permitted at all. Ships will be subject to flag state inspections. Only IACS members are authorized to act as RO/RSO on behalf of Portugal.

Shipping is in the process of changing its face. „Green Shipping“ is already being broadly discussed. Fuel efficiency and design optimization are on the agenda of every ship owner. Moreover, these developments will continue. MAR is committed to play a deciding role in shaping the industry’s new face together with its customers and seafarers.
