Armed Escort Services


Premiumfocus Nautilus is fully insured and licensed to provide armed escort services.

As to date, no vessel that was protected with armed maritime security operators has been hijacked; this fact offers the best proof that armed escort of vessels is the most effective way to protect crew, ship, and cargo against malicious attacks during their transit in high-risk areas.

Our security operators embarking the vessel, remaining onboard during the whole passage through the high-risk area and practicing non-lethal, or as a last resort, lethal techniques, to deter any piracy attempt.

We can provide upon request, all licenses and certifications proving the legal carriage and usage of firearms according to flag, port and coastal state regulations and laws.
