We have been notified by WCMRC of an upcoming increase in annual registration fees for both bulk oil and non-bulk oils ships, effective July 1, 2024.  This marks the first increase in registration fees since 2016, with a 29% hike raising the current fee from $775 to $1,000 per ship.  Please click here for the Notice from WCMRC.

Please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned if you have any questions or comments.

Sincerely,
