Our shipping team routinely advises on the full registration process, including provisional and permanent registrations, parallel (bareboat) registration, the registration of new builds, transfers of ownership, and transfers of existing vessels. We regularly advise lenders, both commercial banks and export credit agencies, in connection with loan finance and security arrangements in the shipping arena. Having built strong relationships with marine surveyors and other technical experts in several jurisdictions, Harneys is able to quickly contact professionals with the expertise required by our clients at short notice.
In addition to our shipping services, we advise clients on aircraft registrations, aircraft mortgage registrations and aircraft financing in the Cayman Islands. Our team also works with lenders, lessors and lessees on loan agreements and security documentation, asset securitisation structures and operating and financial lease structures.
We work closely with the Cayman Islands Civil Aviation Authority
and the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry
