Owning a yacht invariably brings excitement and adventure but can also lead to complex arrangements requiring specialist administration.

JTC has a proven track record in this regard, implementing, administering and co-ordinating a wide variety of structures and associated transactions across the yachting, shipping and offshore supply industries.

“With decades of specialist experience to draw upon, JTC’s marine team is ideally placed to guide you through the various stages of acquiring a yacht or other marine vessel.”

What We Do

As well as understanding the nuances of the industry, we are committed to creating fully customised ownership and management structures based upon your requirements and objectives.


In terms of the ongoing vessel management, we can oversee all responsibilities that would otherwise fall to the owner, including safety management, crew hire, employment contracts, payroll and insurance for both vessel and crew. We can also take responsibility for accounting and other financial matters such as reporting, in addition to providing administrative and operational day-to-day support.

JTC’s global network also includes a number of flag states and jurisdictions in locations which are favourable in the context of yacht ownership.

Our Marine Services include:

  • Corporate structuring for private yacht ownership
  • Corporate structuring for charter yacht ownership
  • Corporate structuring for commercial shipping activities
  • Crew employment and payroll services
  • Accounting and reporting services
  • Vessel registration
  • VAT importations into the EU for yachts
