    Super Yacht Security FAQs

    Do superyachts have security?

    An investment in a superyacht security system protects assets, people and the owners. Ultra-high net worth individuals and billionaires own superyachts. Therefore, sophisticated criminals and pirates target them.

    Well protected super and mega yachts typically deploy a range of CCTV, detection, surveillance and lockdown solutions to meet their security needs.

    If you would like to find out more about your options, contact one of our security professionals today.

    Owners and operators can protect and secure superyachts in several ways. Typically, security systems for super yachts cover sophisticated solutions covering:

    • Early-stage inbound threat detection – beams, long-range sensors and FLIR cameras
    • Advanced CCTV surveillance camera – thermal, PTZ and ultra-HD long-range devices
    • Drones – digital security solutions offering regular spot-checks
    • Deck Sensors – triggering alerts if sophisticated criminals breach the first line of security
    • Vessel lockdown systems – push button systems protecting the owner, crew and guests

    Each device and solution meets a range of needs and security objectives.

    The benefits of installing security systems on superyachts are vast. They include:

    • Protecting people
    • Deterring organised criminals
    • Securing valuable assets

    To secure assets, protect people and deter criminals, a well-protected yacht will deploy a mix of CCTV, surveillance devices, detection solutions and lockdown measures to meet their security needs.

    Superyachts are vulnerable to pirate attacks and are prone to be targeted by organised criminals. Therefore, so it is important to invest in security and protect the most susceptible parts of the vessel.

    For example:

    • High value assets, and individuals are targeted for financial gain and kidnap, respectively.
    • The owner’s family members can be targeted to secure ransom payments
