If you own a yacht, you need to do everything that you can to protect it. While there are steps that you can take on your own to reduce your chances of becoming a victim of yacht theft, these precautions are not a replacement for a team of skilled security guards. Luckily, you can rest assured that guards from Special Security Services will offer exactly what you need as a yacht owner.
Not only have we offered protection to boat and yacht owners throughout the state, but we offer affordable prices. Furthermore, you can count on our guards to arrive fast, and we offer some of the most reliable security services in the state. Here’s what you need to know about the protection we offer:
The Importance of Doing Everything You Can to Protect Your Yacht
Yachts can be worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, which means that they’re often targeted by thieves. Furthermore, property crime rates in California are quite high. This is especially true in many of the state’s coastal cities, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego.
California actually had the second-highest rate of yacht theft in the country during 2019. In fact, there were 479 incidents that year alone. Furthermore, the recovery rate for boats was only 56% in the state. Some states had even lower recovery rates and higher rates of boat theft.
In fact, Sacramento has the second-highest rate of boat theft in the nation, and there were 49 incidents in the city during 2019. Furthermore, the 2019 recovery rate for boats stolen in Sacramento was less than 50%!
Overall Property Crime Rates are High
If you live in the state of California, your odds of becoming a victim of property crime were around 2.33% in 2019. Not only that, but these odds are 10% higher than the United States average. This is yet another reason why you need the right team of guards to protect your yacht.
The highest rate of property crime can be found in the community of Industry, California, which is part of Los Angeles county. Not only that, but the overall property crime rate in LA is quite high as well. In fact, the rate of property crime in the city of Los Angeles is approximately 24 per 1,000 residents.
Even if your yacht is located in one of the state’s safer communities, it’s important to realize that this does not guarantee that it won’t be targeted by thieves. Luckily, our guards offer security services to yacht owners throughout the state of California, which means that we can protect your boat no matter where it’s docked.
Some Boats are More Likely to Be Targeted Than Others
While a large portion of watercraft thefts involve personal watercraft, sailboats, cruisers, utility boats, and runabouts are also frequently targeted. In fact, there were 466 runabouts, 193 cruisers, and 45 sailboats stolen during 2019!
We Can Protect Valuable Items on Your Boat
Not only can our guards protect your boat itself, but they can also keep onboard items safe from theft and vandalism. Furthermore, we offer our one-of-a-kind security services throughout the state.
Other Forms of Protection are Often Ineffective
While there are steps that you can take on your own to protect your yacht, they’re not a replacement for hiring a skilled team of guards. Furthermore, having a team of skilled guards can dramatically increase the chance that you’ll recover your yacht if it’s ever stolen. That’s because they’ll ensure that the incident is properly documented.
However, it’s important to know that there are steps you can take on your own to protect your yacht. In fact, it’s essential to ensure that you always lock and secure your yacht with a durable steel cable. Furthermore, it’s important to make sure that you bring high-value items home with you after docking your yacht.
Not only does this include jewelry and other valuables, but it also includes any expensive equipment that you use for fishing. In addition, it’s important to avoid leaving small items behind that are extremely valuable, such as jewelry and watches. Luckily, you can rest assured that hiring an experienced security team from Special Security Services will dramatically reduce the chances of anything on your yacht being stolen.
