The Bahamas Maritime Authority


The Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA) is a premier ship registry whose significant global growth has been in no small part due to its insistence on quality and service. With offices in the USA (New York), Europe (London, Germany and Greece), Asia (Hong Kong and Japan) and The Bahamas (Nassau), the BMA provides registration services to one of the world's largest fleets with strengths in all market segments.

It boasts an impressive list of international shipowners with whom it meets regularly through The Bahamas Shipowners Association and in conjunction with significant organisations including the U.S. Coast Guard and the European Union.

The BMA offers its owners many benefits – joining a quality fleet, flying a highly-respected flag, having access to strong technical support and expertise, having a powerful voice in the shipping world as well as an influence on the Register's future direction.

A member of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) since 1976 and an elected member of the IMO Council, The Bahamas is one of IMO's largest financial contributors. It is an active participant at its meetings, and often leads the way in raising cutting-edge industry matters.
