For the 31st consecutive year the GSCC presents statistical data, in the form of 11 tables, attached hereto, on Greek controlled ships over 1,000 GT, registered under the Greek and other flags. The data has been provided by IHS Markit. The following is a short analysis, prepared by the Secretariat, of the data provided.


Information from Table 1, compared with corresponding data from the previous year, shows that, during the year to 19th of March, 2018, the Greek controlled fleet has increased in terms of number of vessels, DWT and GT. According to the data, as of 19.03.2018, Greek interests controlled 4,148 vessels of various categories, of 341,925,357 total DWT and 199,286,013 total GT. Compared with the previous year’s data, this represents an increase of 63 vessels, 13,161,590 DWT and 6,855,494 GT. The figures include 200 vessels of various categories on order from shipyards, a total of 23,953,312 DWT and 14,205,765 GT.
The fleet registered under the Greek flag has decreased in terms of ship numbers, DWT and GT, now comprising 723 ships, of 43,393,089 GT and 74,537,350 DWT.
The Greek controlled fleet is registered under some 41 flags.
Flag Analysis of Ships owned by Greek parent companies, which gives the total number of ships, total DWT and total GT, registered under each of the main registries used by Greek owners, compared with the corresponding table of last year, shows that Liberia gained 49 ships, Marshall Islands 33 ships, Malta 23 ships and Cyprus 3 ships.
On the other hand, a decrease has been recorded in the number of vessels under Panamanian flag, with a loss of 22, as well as Greece, which faced a loss of 24 ships this year, 672,557 in DWT and 317,788 in GT. Minor changes have been noted for all other flags.
Overall, Liberia and Marshal Island flags are at the forefront of the Greek owned fleet with 824 ships each on their register. In terms of DWT, they are at 65,079,135 and 65,916,386 respectively, representing 19% and 19.3% of total DWT of the Greek owned fleet.
The Greek flag follows with 723 ships of 74,537,350 DWT. However, it should be noted that the Greek flag remains the largest in terms of DWT, with 21.8% of the total DWT of the Greek owned fleet.
Malta comes next with 694 ships of 63,893,903 DWT, Panama with 355 ships of 24,169,452 DWT, Cyprus with 274 ships of 20,378,898 DWT and the Bahamas with 247 ships of 18,269,328 DWT.
With regard to the order book as to ship type, currently there are 74 oil tankers on order, 29 chemical & products tankers, 27 liquefied gas tankers, 57 ore & bulk carriers, 9 container ships, 4 other cargo ships and no passenger or cargo ships on order.
TABLES 2 & 3: Comparison between the world fleet and Greek owned fleet per ship type The following table presents the Greek controlled fleet in number of ships in comparison with the word fleet, providing the figures as to ship type. What is notable is that the Greek parent companies represent 26.4% of the world tanker fleet and 16.2% of the Ore and Bulk fleet. Overall, the Greek owned fleet as a percentage of the world fleet stands at 7.6 in terms of ship numbers, 13.8 in terms of GT and 16.4 in terms of DWT, as shown in table 4 of the attached data. The Greek registered fleet as a percentage of the world fleet, in terms of number of ships, GT, and DWT is 1.3, 3 and 3.6 respectively, according to the attached table 9. It should be noted, however, that for oil tankers the percentages are 8.5, 9.1 and 9.2 respectively.
