A Registry of British Ships is situated at Grand Turk, and it is relatively simple and inexpensive to register a vessel under 50 tons. Registration of larger ships will generally not be possible. Registration is possible only for ship-owners coming within the definition of British subjects, and a Turks & Caicos company comes within that definition. Indeed in that regard a Turks & Caicos company may be registered as the owner of a ship in any Registry of British Ships. As there is no restriction on who may own a Turks & Caicos company, it is an appropriate vehicle for the foreign national wishing to register in a British Registry.

Savory & Co. will attend to registration of yachts and ships at the Grand Turk Registry, including cases where the desire is to transfer registration from another port of registry. We can also arrange the incorporation of an ordinary company (see above) for the purposes of registration.
