Bareboat Charter Registration - Maltese law provides for bareboat charter registration of Maltese vessels under the Malta flag as well as bareboat charter registration of Maltese vessels under a foreign flag. The main principles adopted are, the compatibility of the two registries and, that matters regarding title over the vessel, mortgages and encumbrances are governed by the underlying registry, while the operation of the vessel falls under jurisdiction of the bareboat charter registry. Within these parameters bareboat charter registered vessels enjoy the same rights and privileges, and have the same obligations, as any other vessels registered in Malta.
