Shipowners looking for a suitable base for their operations would be hard pushed to find anywhere as capable and convenient as Gibraltar.
As many shipowners have already discovered, Gibraltar can offer expertise and flexibility in ship management services that is matched by very few other ports.
Furthermore, Gibraltar is already used by approximately 9,000 vessels each year for bunkering, provisioning, ship repair, crew changes and other services – so it makes sense for shipowners to base their ship management operations here.
Other good reasons for using Gibraltar:
Favourable fiscal climate including VAT-free status
Pleasant living environment with a range of good accommodation
Skilled and bilingual workforce where the main language is English
Large shipping service and support industry
Excellent professional infrastructure with wide expertise in maritime, legal and financial matters
Airport only minutes from the Port with regular flights to the UK
