Romford: Debasis Mazumdar, the ceo of the St Kitts & Nevis International Ship Registry, has an ambitious goal, he tells Maritime CEO, to double the size of the fleet flying the Caribbean island’s flag within five years.
The register has been in operation for 10 years now, and has around 700 ships on its books. The mix of ships is very varied, says Mazumdar, and does include some oil rigs.
“In these difficult times, shipowners want us to standby them as a flag when they need us,” Mazumdar says. “Time is money and they want a quick and efficient service with minimum fees,” he adds.
