VessEx offers three categories of services: ship recovery services, ship
protection / anti-piracy services and aircraft recovery services.
Ship Recovery Services
Those who have the legal right to possess a ship—whether an
owner or mortgagee—often cannot exercise that right due to
circumstances beyond their control. VessEx can restore a
client's control over their ships in a wide variety of situations:
- Ship Repossessions: Ships that have
been withheld from mortgagee repossession by defaulting owners. Learn
- Arrested Ship Recoveries: Ships that
have been wrongly seized in a corrupt port on baseless charges. Learn
Detained Ship Recoveries:
Ships that have been detained by governmental authorities pending correction of
deficiencies. Learn more ...
Abandoned Ship Recoveries:
Ships that have been abandoned by her owner, charterer or crew. Learn
Stolen Ship Recoveries: Ships
that have been stolen by thieves or held by a disobedient crew. Learn
Ship Protection / Anti-Piracy Services
VessEx launched its Shiprotek service in response to the growing number of
pirate attacks throughout
the world. Our highly skilled and well-equipped teams
accompany vessels while they transit high-risk areas to deter
and repel attacks. Key features of Shiprotek include:
- armed riding teams
- protection training for the ship's crew
- response planning
- active defense
Aircraft Recovery Services
Our highly skilled aviation team can locate and recover
almost any type of aircraft for dispossessed owners or
mortgagees. If the location of an aircraft is unknown,
VessEx's proven investigative techniques can find and track
it anywhere in the world. Once found, VessEx can
dispatch an experienced team of pilots and crew to recover
the aircraft and return it to your control.
