“The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry’s office in Piraeus is the second largest of the RMI Registry’s 27 worldwide offices,” said Theo Xenakoudis,
Director, Worldwide Business Operations and Managing Director of the Piraeus office. “Prior to registration, we vet the owner, operator and vessel before acceptance in the RMI Registry and during the vessel’s time in the Registry we continue to conduct risk assessments and work with our owners and operators to ensure their vessels meet the Registry’s quality standards,” continued Mr. Xenakoudis. “This process along with our service oriented philosophy has ensured the RMI Registry has maintained its excellent reputation and as such has attracted quality owners, including the Greek owners to the RMI flag,” he said. “We are delighted that our Greek owners and operators continue to hold the RMI Registry in such high regard which has been reflected in the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee’s March 2017 Greek Controlled Shipping Report which shows the RMI as the number one choice of flag for Greek owners and operators,” he concluded.
