It is one of those strange quirks of shipping regulation that that tiny, or landlocked nations – or in this case both- can become international shipping registries. The newest international shipping registry belongs to San Marino a 61sq km nation entirely surrounded by Northern Italy.

The Maritime Authority of the Republic of San Marino has announced it is partnering with the newest ship registry to come to the market, the San Marino Ship Register (SMSR).

The San Marino Ship Registry will register ships, whether VLCCs or yachts and commercially operated vessels of any size to fly the flag of San Marino. The newly appointed San Marino Ship Register (SMSR) has published the registry’s guidelines for registration.

While the registry’s headquarters are located in San Marino, the team strive to offer efficient and simple registration solutions which include all-digital access to certification, 24-hour global support, and a quality customer service with quick response times.

“The brand-new partnership between the San Marino Maritime Authority and San Marino Ship Register will establish San Marino’s position as a key player in the maritime industry,” said Marco Conti, Director General – San Marino Civil Aviation and Maritime Navigation Authority,

San Marino, located on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains, covers a land area of just over 61 sq km but is not a member of the European Union. San Marino has been a member of the International Maritime Organization since 2002.

The state operated Registry, one of the smallest flag states along with Tuvalu and Nauru, says it will offer 48-hour registration process, attractive fee and tax regimes with no restrictions on nationalities.
