About — Company Profile
Established in 2002, VessEx provides ship and aircraft recovery and anti-piracy
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.
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
- a highly experienced team of professionals;
- prudent and farsighted situation assessment;
- careful and thoughtful planning;
- comprehensive client reporting and consultation; and
- well-executed operations.
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:
