The Bahamas Maritime Authority


The Bahamas Maritime Authority



The Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA) is the government agency responsible for ships registered in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and was established in July 1995 by the Bahamas Maritime Authority Act.  

With a head office in the Bahamas, it has a network of regional offices worldwide in London, Piraeus, Hong Kong, Tokyo and New York, with a fleet of over 1,500 ships consisting of some 64m gross tonnage.

The Bahamas is a non-targeted flag from a Port State Control perspective, this being reflected in The Bahamas being on the white list of all Port State Control regions, “low risk” status in Paris MoU and Tokyo MoU and being a United States Coast Guard QUALSHIP 21 flag.  The BMA also represents The Bahamas at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), International Labour Organisation (ILO), and other international bodies.

The Bahamas is the leading flag state for passenger cruise ships and floating production, storage and offloading units (FPSOs) and is one of the largest registries for LNG carriers.
