Isle of Man Maritime Group

Isle of Man Shipping Association

Members of the Association include ship owners, ship managers, crew managers, yacht managers along with other maritime related businesses which together make up the Isle of Man’s maritime centre of excellence.

The IOMSA has two membership levels:

  • Full members, (15) comprising ship owners or operators whose main business is in shipping;
  • And associate members (40) whose businesses include shipping related activities.


The IOMSA works closely with the Isle of Man Government and the Ship Registry, providing ideas, opportunities and solutions to ensure the Island’s maritime community continues to prosper.

The IOMSA provides valuable feedback from an industry perspective on proposed legislative changes and government initiatives.

This public/private partnership has resulted in the Ship Registry becoming one of the most client focused and streamlined of the major registries worldwide.

The IOMSA hold biannual “Tri-Partite” meetings with the Ship Registry and both relevant Maritime Unions - Nautilus and the RMT to provide a forum to exchange views and resolve issues relating to Seafarers.

If you would like more information about the IOMSA please visit our website or contact our Secretary Rebecca George at or mobile: +44 (0) 7624 427892.
