The recently founded European International Shipowners’ Association of Portugal
(EISAP) represents more than 80% of owners of ships sailing under the Portuguese flag.
It is a private association.
EISAP is headquartered in Funchal, the capital of Madeira. This ensures proximity to the International Business Centre of Madeira, of which the International Shipping Register of Madeira (MAR) is part. EISAP also has offices in Lisbon, thereby ensuring closer direct business connections to associates.
