San Marino yacht registration

San Marino is a Member State of IMO since 2002 and started a new ship register in 2021, which ensures fast and efficient registration in Europe. The San Marino yacht registration for private yachts is valid for 5 years and the procedure takes only 2 working days.

San Marino is a renowned flag that is valid all over the world and it is a highly rated IMO flag. San Marino has its own delegation to the IMO and represented offices in several countries.

As San Marino is in Europe but not part of the EU, it is ideally located for ships navigating the Mediterranean.

The San Marino yacht registration is a popular yacht registration due to its fast registration process and low cost. This coupled with a prestigious flag such as that of San Marino, is sure to be a popular possibility for boat owners around the world.

As it is highly respected it will save you a lot of bureaucracy and red tape when entering a new marina / country.
