Patriotic superyacht owners can flag their yachts now in the United States

Last Update: November 12th, 2018

U.S.Superyacht Association Applauds Long Overdue Change Brought on With Bipartisan Support.
With the stroke of President Trump’s pen on Monday, August 13, 2018, patriotic yacht owners are now able to fly an American flag and register their yachts – over 300 GT – in the United States.

This new legislation modernizes outdated laws and brings the United States in line with current times.


“This has been a significant issue that the U.S. Superyacht Association (USSA) has spent nearly a decade working to correct,” said Kate Pearson, USSA Chair and vice president of business development of Safe Harbor Marinas.
“We are thrilled to have been an integral part of helping to finally make it a reality and are pleased that yacht owners will no longer be chased from American shores to other countries to flag their vessels.”
