Flag state 2016 / 2017: Top 10 Ship registers
Could this be a changing of the guard? International Registries Inc would like to think so. In March the Marshall Islands vaulted arch rival Liberia to become the world's second-largest ship register by deadweight tonnage. According to LLI total deadweight on the Marshall Islands flag is now 231,853,515 dwt with 3,796 vessels. Panama remains the biggest flag by some way, with 352,670,914 dwt and 9,451 vessels. Liberia slipped to third place with 225,564,394 dwt and 4,050 vessels.
