Introduction

Spending time on your yacht should be a break from a busy everyday schedule, allowing you to enjoy a relaxed and peaceful time with your family, friends and guests. A time that should be spent in a sphere of joy and pleasure, but also in privacy and comfort.

Sailing the open seas offers the perfect conditions to do so but also features a variety of possible threats, which have to be taken into account when playing it safe. 

Besides the natural dangers of navigation, human-caused hazards that may appear like a spring tide and have a disappointing effect on your vacation and recreation – not only for you as the yacht owner, your family and friends, but also for your guests, crew and assets.

In recent years, those human-caused dangers such as crime at the sea – including piracy, armed robbery, kidnapping and terrorism – have become a steadily growing global issue that must be considered when intending to travel on the open seas through high-risk areas, especially along the coasts of Africa, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Yemen, parts of the Arabian Sea, and also currently in the Mediterranean Sea.

We strongly advise yacht owners, yacht managers and yacht operators intending to venture through the high-risk areas on the sea to seek for an advice from a professional private security provider or security consultant in order to consider issues that may affect your own safety as well the one of your family members, guests and crew.
