USPA prepares ship security officers for the Miami International Boat Show


As the Miami International Boat Show approaches, USPA Nationwide Security anticipates an increase in maritime security requests

By merging the Miami International Boat Show and the Miami Yacht Show, the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show has become the world’s largest boat and yacht show. You can find kayaks, superyachts, and the latest aquatic innovations on this website.

A number of activities will take place on-site at the Miami Beach Convention Center and Pride Park. The show’s in-water components will be hosted at IGY Yacht Haven Grande at Island Gardens, One Herald Plaza, Museum Park Marina, and Sea Isle Marina.

USPA provided Titanium Service (VIP Security) at various locations during Art Basel, including private events at the Yves Saint Laurent gallery and VIP afterparties. Marinas have taken center stage ahead of the Miami International Boat Show in February.

“It is not as simple as sending security officers to guard our clients’ yachts and marinas,” USPA Vice President Brian Fitzgibbons stated. “We invest months of research and intelligence into the advance work we do.” As part of risk assessments, open-source intelligence, and liaison with local law enforcement marine units and the United States Coast Guard, he refers to preliminary stages.

A major seaport and transportation hub in Florida, Fitzgibbons believes Miami poses a significant maritime security threat. Various companies also store millions of containers there. The port is one of the largest in the country.

Maintaining maritime security requires professional control mechanisms. Fitzgibbons states that ship security officers are responsible for monitoring suspicious behavior and collaborating closely with local law enforcement authorities. As well as assessing cargo, they inspect boats and marinas prior to boarding cruise ships.

It was in 2005 that USPA Nationwide Security began providing superyacht security in Miami as well as maritime security officers throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and parts of Africa. A team of amphibious veterans and special operators will be on hand at the Miami International Boat Show.
