About the Red Ensign

The Red Ensign Group is comprised of the United Kingdom, Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey) and UK Overseas Territories (Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, St Helena and the Turks & Caicos Islands) which operate shipping registers. These registers are divided into two categories:

Category 1 - register ships of unlimited tonnage and type.

Category 2 - register commercial ships and yachts of up to 150 gross tons  (this limit can be extended to 400GT with an agreement in place with the UK); and vessels which are not operated commercially of up to 400 GT.
