Greek-flagged Ships Awarded by US Coast Guard

elliniki-nautiliaGreek flag ships are considered to be of the highest quality in the world, with the vessels on the Greek register being among the most cutting-edge in global waters.

The US Coast Guard’s recognition of Greece as a Quality Flag State was granted to the Greek register for another year, for the exceptional performance recorded in inspections of Greek vessels at various ports.

In the last three years, the rate of Greek-flagged ships to be detained was below one percent, which is a key condition for the US authority to issue the Quality Flag State qualification.

The Greek register therefore maintains its position as a member of the Qualship 21 program that started in 2001 and is aimed at introducing a system for the assessment of quality and the supply of incentives for ships bearing non-US flags, traveling to American ports.
