AML was founded with a passionate and determined spirit to drive one mission, to offer an exceptional quality service while providing the right solutions for our customers in the Maritime industry.

Why is this important? Every day offers new challenges which we are all faced with; maritime operations can be complex, are time consuming and require hands on persons who anticipate problems as it can be very costly if not done properly or carried out efficiently. Regulations constantly evolve and this requires persons in the industry to understand and implement the changes required.

We had noticed there were always more problems than available fast and responsive solutions to keep up with these constant changing industry demands. After years of dealing with these issues, it turns out there is a simple explanation; we set out to create a company that is fast and agile, with a knowledgeable and passionate team of experts in place to create quality driven solutions in the Maritime sector.

In 2002, a team of ex-captains who lived and breathed the vessels led the way to develop practices that ensure any challenges faced within our clients day-to-day operations were met with as much efficiency to ensure the best tailor-made outcome.

Our services cover a multiple of disciplines. We offer solutions from securing the right crew to vessels, managing yacht leasing structures, registering vessels under the Malta flag and any corporate-related matters. Everything we do is provided directly with our own 24hr advisors who have a deep knowledge of the vessels, based in Malta, the heart of the Mediterranean.

Our answer to exceptional service is based on our belief of being an extension to your business. Your challenge becomes our challenge; equally personal and concerned. For over 20 years this is our legacy we have built and deliver every, single day.
