Yacht and Boat Security
In February 2020, a report was made by the Caribbean Safety and Security Net that some amount of money was stolen on a yacht while the owner of the yacht was ashore. The owner left a huge dog on the yacht to keep it protected, but obviously, that wasn’t enough. Also, in January 2020, minders of a yacht on the shores of the Dominican Republic discovered that it had been burglarized. The criminal had used some tools to remove the boat’s locking hardware, thereby gaining easy entrance into the boat. According to the CSSN, there was a significant increase in the total criminal acts on boats and yachts. There was a 27% increase in security threats to yacht from the previous year. The importance of having reliable yacht and boat security services can never be overstated.
Whether you own a Super Yacht or you’re a charter user, your crew members, family, and staff will always want to feel safe when on the boat. Criminals target all sizes of yachts, and they can cause unrepairable damages. When there’s an expert security service provider aboard, there is an assurance of peace of mind. The modes of operation of pirates over the years are very similar to those of the historical forebears. Their activities include kidnapping, cargo theft, vessel theft, burglaries, and many more. They even attack crew members and other individuals on board, causing them serious injuries.
Nation Security can assist in minimizing the risk of these crimes. We provide you with yacht security teams that are always aware of suspicious movements and behaviors. The level of security required by a superyacht is different from the one needed for a cruise ship or boat. We understand this at Nation Security, which is why we work with you to analyze the security needs of your yacht. We then tailor our boat and yacht security plans to meet your exact requirements. We also develop preparation and guidance that helps the people onboard to take into account all security measures.
