Piracy is not a Somali or Indian Ocean event. Here at Maritime Vital Asset Protection, we really don't concern ourselves overly much with definitions. Crime against yachtsmen, cruisers and their vessels is a crime, and measures need to be developed to deter and deal with the occurrence. Whether it is piracy or simple theft, leave the definitions to lawyers.
Do research prior to your voyages, or contacts us and let us help you become aware of the 'issues' you may encounter.
