Gibraltar’s illustrious maritime history has placed it at the forefront of most areas of maritime law. TSN’s experience with shipping, maritime organisations and the associated regulations has placed us in unparalleled standing to assist with the unique challenges and requirements of this sector.

For ship and boat owners, registering with the Gibraltar Shipping Registry provides not only the benefits of the Red Ensign but also a number of financial benefits including an exemption from VAT. Whether you are the owner or operator of commercial merchant vessels or private yachts we can assist with registration and ensuring compliance across applicable regulations.

Gibraltar’s location also makes it a key jurisdiction for ship arrests. With Admiralty legislation and procedures being based on world renowned English Admiralty law, Gibraltar is regarded as a very attractive jurisdiction. TSN is internationally regarded as one of Gibraltar’s “go to” firms in this field. The arrest of Sailing Yacht A in early 2017 only enhanced its reputation as one of the leading firms in this area.
