In Seychelles, the registration process is straightforward and efficient. Owners need to submit the necessary documentation, including proof of ownership and compliance with safety standards.

Mauritius follows a similar process, requiring documentation such as proof of ownership, a bill of sale, and a tonnage survey.

Both jurisdictions have experienced maritime authorities overseeing the registration process.

What are the tax implications for yacht and ship owners in Seychelles and Mauritius?

Seychelles is known for its tax-efficient environment, with no income, capital gains, or inheritance taxes.
