On-Board Security Escort Services

Our in 1996 founded private security company since 2005 has been offering owners, managers and operators of private and commercial yachts a variety of options for effective protection and security measures against the activities of criminal groups at sea and land through armed escort services, consultancy and crew trainings.

As a result, we have established within our company the MARITIME DIVISION and founded the dedicated i.b.s.® M.R.U. Maritime Response Unit.

This unit consists of specialists with expert knowledge in the field of anti-piracy and anti-terrorism-related issues.

i.b.s.® M.R.U.´s discreet on-board protection services are provided in an unobtrusive manner while cooperating with the yacht´s captain and crew to have in mind the demands of the yacht owner’s itinerary. Our premium security standards allow owners, their families and guests to follow their travel itinerary in complete peace of mind and to know that their own personal safety and protection of value assets are being well taken care of.

Our comprehensive on-board security services goes more in depth as we also provide diving support to yacht owners, managers and operators. We execute this by developing and implementing tailor-made underwater security programs for our clients, which includes most modern underwater video surveillance and diver detection systems (DDS).

At this stage we would also like to take the opportunity to point out that, in line with the international requirements for PCASP (Privately Contracted Armed Security Personnel), i.b.s.® possesses indemnity insurance cover of EUR 5,000,000, which also specifically includes armed maritime operations.

Furthermore our company is still certified by DNV-GL (formerly known as the Germanischer Lloyd) according to the ISO 9001:2008 standard for international armed security services including maritime security, consultancy and training.
