30 ships are now registered at the "China Yangpu Port" in Hainan Province. The total tonnage of ships registered at this port has increased from 670,000 before 2018 to the current 5.5 million tons, the 3rd highest total registered tonnage at all Chinese ports.

In 2021, China's Hainan Maritime Safety Administration passed the first local maritime regulations on international ships. It also issued supervision and management measures for entry level inspection on ships registered outside China. All of this was pioneered by the Hainan Free Trade Port.

Overseas personnel now are also allowed to take the registered ship surveyor examination.

In Hainan, expat crew members are permitted to participate in crew training, take official examinations, and apply for crew certificates.

In 2022, the Hainan Maritime Safety Administration will develop a comprehensive quality evaluation system for international ships, further develop safe management of ship navigation in the Free Trade Port, and mark out the mooring anchorage for the upcoming island-wide customs border of Hainan.

In addition, the Hainan Maritime Safety Administration will promote yacht industry reform and development of innovative pilot areas, and plan the construction of a cruise home port.
