With Malta currently boasting the largest flag in Europe in terms of tonnage, the need for banks to have Maltese registered security is a daily occurrence. International ship finance is one of GANADO’s major strengths and the firm assists numerous ship financing banks and institutions throughout the world in registering and perfecting the registration of mortgages and security interests over Maltese-registered vessels.

The knowledge and expertise of our Ship Finance Team ensures that GANADO remains at the forefront of this area in Malta. The team is involved in the drafting of various Maltese-law governed security documents such as mortgages and deeds of covenants collateral thereto and pledges of shares securing obligations arising under loan agreements, master agreements and other generally non-Maltese law governed transaction documents which are regularly reviewed from a Maltese law perspective.

The team is renowned for its problem-solving and pragmatic approach and enjoys the respect of the shipping industry both locally and internationally.
