About — Company Profile

Established in 2002, VessEx provides ship and aircraft recovery and anti-piracy services to mortgagees, owners, charterers and insurers.  We've worked in some of the world's toughest environments, from crime-infested ports to war zones, to protect the interests of our clients.   

Not only does VessEx offer complete asset recovery and protection services—from strategy development to physical deployments—but our diverse methods are designed to avoid costly mistakes while maximizing client returns.

Careful Execution

VessEx understands the need to protect not just the valuable assets which are entrusted to our care, but all of our clients' interests.  That's why all VessEx operations feature:

  • a highly experienced team of professionals;
  • prudent and farsighted situation assessment;
  • careful and thoughtful planning;
  • comprehensive client reporting and consultation; and
  • well-executed operations.

Proven Experience

VessEx personnel have a wealth of experience in getting ships out of difficult situations.  Our Operations Director, Capt. Hardberger, provides a full account  of his ship recovery experiences in his memoir, SEIZED, published by the Broadway Books imprint of Random House in April 2010.  The U.S. hardcover edition of SEIZED is available wherever books are sold and from the following online retailers:
