Yacht Security

Keeping in line with 'one stop shop' policy, JPS Yacht and Charter Service has entered into an agreement with Orchid Maritime Securit for our Foreign Flagged visiting yachts. They provide specialist maritime risk consultancy and advice with solutions that enable customers to manage and mitigate their maritime risks. In terms of what a typical package would include – they would ordinarily offer something along the lines of the following:

 

Executive Summary

Orchid Maritime Security provides effective security solutions to the Superyacht industry that are unsurpassed. Orchid Maritime will draw upon this unparalleled experience to offer the Captain and Crew the benefit of 'best in class' transit security advice. With luxurious Superyachts it can be anticipated that during its lifespan the yacht will cruise to most parts of the world and this may include certain high risk areas or vulnerable transit corridors. In order to mitigate the inherent risks of such a transit, it is essential that both the Captain and crew receive adequate security training to complement a robust and customized anti-piracy security plan. In most cases the vessel security arrangements are only as effective as the physical and technical security assets employed aboard the yacht.

 

Yacht Survey

This will typically include a review of all current crew and skills, plus the equipment on board – Surveillance, Ship Security Alert System (SSAS), Satellite communications, V Satellite communication (VOIP), GSM, etc.

 

Proposed Security Services

To ensure the security of the crew and the Motor Yacht it is advised that the crew is augmented by a specified number of Maritime Close Protection Officers from Orchid. The Close Protection Officers are Ship Security Officer (SSO) trained and have a specialist maritime security background. Most of our CPOs have completed their STCW '95 and all of our CPOs will hold an ENG1 Certificate. The security team will receive a comprehensive brief in the UK encompassing the transit, Motor Yacht operations and crew procedures. The security team brings with them LRAD/MAD that is ideal for yachts and a set of Thermal Imagery sights for night time observation. The LRAD/MAD is non-lethal and has been used effectively against pirates.

 

Security Training Package

The Security Training Package, presented to all crew, will include: anti-piracy techniques; security duties; security awareness and appropriate emergency / contingencies. The crew will undergo a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) and Magnetic Audio Device (MAD) familiarisation and training package to the extent that they will be able to operate the device safely and effectively. The training will conclude with security and safety drills that will take place during the early stages of the passage.
