The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry is pleased to announce the award of Qualship 21 status by the United States (US) Coast Guard (USCG) to 30 bulk carriers owned and operated by Star Bulk Carriers Corp (hereinafter “Star Bulk”).

The Qualship 21 program provides positive rewards to high quality ships and can only be awarded to vessels sailing under a qualifying flag. The RMI Registry is one of only a handful of ship registries to have less than a 1.0% three-year detention ratio in the US and is the only large commercial flag to maintain Qualship 21 status through 2016. There were 13 flag administrations that lost Qualship 21 eligibility in 2016 due to their three-year detention ratio exceeding 1.0%.
