Superyachts are creations of craftsmanship, luxury and innovation. They attract attention and with the ever present risks of piracy and armed robbery in all parts of the world, yacht charters, yachtowners, captains and yacht management companies must be aware of the criminal intentions of their attackers. Pirates and robbers perceive superyachts as an easy target; low freeboard, no razor wire and an owner who has the resources to pay ransom. ESS Maritime can mitigate these risks with our superyacht security solutions and will provide peace of mind during your transit through high risk areas.
