VESSEL SECURITY PLAN
MARITIME VOYAGE PLANNING
We assist and support super-yacht management companies and private clients through planning and advisory services regarding all aspects of maritime and yacht security. We develop a strategic and operational security plan to mitigate risks associated with all maritime activity. Including, transiting and port operations around the world.
Our yacht security plan's objective, is to set out the security measures and procedures to be implemented at each maritime security level. Safeguarding against acts of unlawful interference with transiting, vessels, or on-shore facilities. This is used in conjunction with a maritime security and vulnerability assessment, that identifies and describes the main security threat to these vessels and port facilities.
Based on observations and results from our yacht security assessment, our maritime security consultants and company security officers, develop and provide a comprehensive vessel security plan. This plays an important role in ensuring the security of each yacht. Additionally, using the data acquired from a vessel security assessment, we advise on various threats which are likely to be encountered and will aid the decision making process regarding the vessels security level, at every stage of transit and while at port.
Voyage planning and preparation requires professional maritime security practices to be considered, to fundamentally mitigate exposure and risks from piracy, terrorism, theft, smuggling, stowaway and other criminal activities, if these are to be eliminated.
We provide up to date intelligence reports in support of the ship’s master, in preparation of transits, assessing passage risk and any known current threats.
We coordinate with ship board personnel and port authorities to carry out all maritime operations with utmost security and ensure that the yacht's security equipment is properly operated, tested, calibrated and maintained.
Our consultants and maritime security officers asses the type of vessel and situation and depending on this information, devise a security plan and develop preparation guidance to take into account various security measures related to the handling of cargo, engine room operations, yachts store and other relevant matters.
