What is a Military Superyacht?

A military superyacht is a large, 150- to 200-feet yacht. Thus, it can easily accommodate at least 6 passengers apart from a decent-sized crew. So, a superyacht can easily host 10 or more people. A military superyacht is a large ship that also can carry military planes. It usually is equipped with a large, flat surface for these planes to take off and land from.

Why are Military Style Superyachts Popular?

Of late, there has been a new trend amongst the rich and famous. This is to own large superyachts well-e quipped with the latest in marine and military technology. It is apparently due to the fear of pirates in the oceans. People owning such superyachts feel that they are in danger from these untoward marine elements.

There have been recent reports of piracy being reported in the waters off the Somalian coast. Now, many believe that ocean piracy is now not merely restricted to the Gulf of Aden. It is actually spreading its tentacles everywhere in the deep, dark ocean waters.

These military superyachts come well-equipped with hidden chambers, escape pods, and tracking devices. Originally, these were all features that military vessels had for their safety. Additionally, the security guards on these superyachts are all ex-marines. Obviously, it seems that the wealthy are pulling out all the stops to equip their superyachts against dangers in the sea, particularly piracy. Moreover, this is true for all those who have expensive artwork, furniture and keep large quantities of cash and other valuables on their yachts.
