The Cayman Islands has a seafaring history that goes back more than a century.
This tradition is preserved by the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI) which has oversight of the Cayman Registry and maintains its headquarters in Grand Cayman.
Established in 1903, the Cayman Registry operates a high-quality shipping registry, and upholds an outstanding Port State Control Record which ensures it maintains the top White List, low-risk status rankings globally in the leading MOUs on Port State Control. These high-performance accomplishments reflect that the vessels registered in the Cayman Islands are considered some of the safest, most compliant vessels around the world. For added safety, Cayman-flagged vessels also have full British Consular Services and Royal Naval assistance offering worldwide protection. The Cayman Islands flag and its safety requirements are seen as the gold standard in the shipping industry.
The MACI is a first-class international organisation, with a worldwide reputation for excellence and efficiency. The Cayman Islands Red Ensign can be seen on ships and yachts around the world. A member of the Red Ensign Group with Category 1 status, the Cayman Registry has the capability of registering vessels of any size and class, from yachts to super tankers and focuses on maintaining the highest standards.
