Yacht Registration

One-to-One Yacht Management offers yacht registration services in a multitude of countries all around the world, but mainly Malta, Cayman Islands, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Marshall Islands and the USA.

If you were given the opportunity to obtain a passport from any country in the world, which one would you choose? Each state offers varying levels of benefits, protection, status and financial advantages, while also requiring its citizens to obey different laws, regulations and pay different taxes.

Selecting the flag state of your yacht involves a similar decision making process, the vessel is bound to the law of its flag state who exercises regulatory control over it and its crew. Selecting the correct flag and registry is imperative.

Taking into consideration the owner’s citizenship, country of residence, cruising zone, his want or not to offer the yacht for charter, bareboat or crewed, the crew’s nationality and residence, the yacht’s origin (country of built) and more criteria, we will advise on where to register and take care of the paperwork and inspections.

Once registered, we will keep your registration and all its associated licenses current. All associated documents are available on our online portal.

Yacht Accounting


One-to-One Yacht Management’s team of accountants is precise. Expenses are reviewed by your Yacht Managers to ensure that prices and expenses are justified, reasonable and kept within budget as much as possible.

Our reports are clear and transparent. They will provide you with a 12-month forecast, so you can anticipate the cash flow needed.

You will know that your money is protected, accounted for, and wisely spent. You’ll also know well in advance how much you will need to spend and when to run your yacht.

Crew Management


To give peace of mind to the owner, we offer the option of administering contracts and payroll of the crew under a Guernsey-based Protected Cell Company. This allows for an extra layer of protection for the Yacht-owning company, in the case of a potential crew dispute, as the crew is hired under our Guernsey entity and not the owner.

As any business owner knows, the pleasure or challenge of operating a company is dependent upon the quality and commitment of its employees. We protect you against potential headaches while you enjoy a 5-Star service.

Technical Yacht Support


We organize and plan the full maintenance and technical work of your yacht with the crew. Planning and organization gives time to get several estimates and optimize the maintenance schedule of your boat.

This saves the owner a lot of money, allowing for more time on the water to enjoy the yacht or book charters.

We have partnerships and pre-negotiated rates worldwide that will be utilized for your boat. That way, you can benefit from discounted prices and priority access to shipyards as needed.
