In 2002, the world’s leading fleets were registered under the flags of Panama (350.401 million tonnes total deadweight), Liberia (335.114 million tonnes) and the Marshall Islands (289.781 million tonnes). Greece ranks 9th in the world by registered fleet under its flag with a total deadweight of about 64.562 million tons (for comparison – a ship with a deadweight of only about 102,000 tons sails under the Polish flag). Greece is ahead of Hong Kong (4th), Singapore, Mainland China, Malta and the Bahamas.
The fleet registered under the Greek flag exceeds, in terms of total deadweight, e.g. Japan (10th), Cyprus, United Kingdom (12th), Denmark (14th), Norway (16th), Korea (19th) and United States (21st) with a total deadweight of 12,527 million tons).

At the beginning of 2022, considering the country of residence (ship owner’s position / place of control of the ship’s capital), Greece has the largest fleet in the world with a share (based on dead weight) of the world’s fleet of 18%, ahead of China (13%), Japan (11%) and Singapore (6%) and Hong Kong (5%).

There are 24 ships under the flag of Greece on the PRS 2022 ocean liners list, mainly passenger ferries and small passenger cars and general/multipurpose cargo ships.
