Sarnia Yachts New Flag Selector Tool

Sarnia Yachts Flag Selector Tool

Choosing a Flag State

Yacht owners, captains and other industry professionals can now get instant flag state recommendations using Sarnia Yachts' new online flag selector tool.

Easy-to-use Online Tool

The custom-built tool is featured on the company’s website and takes the user through six questions relating to the yacht’s principle user and vessel criteria. The tool then analyses the results to suggest the most appropriate flag state.
‘We anticipate that the online tool will help users to understand the different factors that affect flag choice,’ explains Sarnia Yachts Director, Bruce Maltwood.
Every owner and every yacht is unique, just as every flag state is different, so please consult Sarnia Yachts and take advantage of their expert knowledge of the marine industry before finalising arrangements.

Customer Focus

The new flag selector tool is typical of Sarnia’s innovative and customer-focused approach, helping yacht owners to make informed decisions about the choice of flag for their yacht.
Before finalizing, Bruce advises: ‘Of course many factors must be considered before making a flagging decision and our team of experts is on hand to discuss individual requirements.’
