Explorer Yacht Summit 21 in partnership with NEKTON

Five years ago, in 2016, scientists and journalists came together to help protect the sea, and the Nekton Foundation was formed.

Since their first Mission to Bermuda, they have helped to protect an area of ocean over twice the size of Germany. Their discovery of the Rariphotic Zone, one of the largest new ecosystems found on Earth in decades, was ground-breaking. Their mission is to protect the ocean, for all our planet’s life and for ourselves – because our existence depends on the ocean’s health.

Priavo Security joined their journey of scientific discovery in 2018, providing fundamental risk management and maritime security operatives onboard for their First Descent mission in the Seychelles – to safeguard crew and deter the very real risk of piracy. From high-risk area transits, piracy drills and crew training to navigating local support, managing key stakeholder risk criteria and facilitating a presidential visit, our team were on board with Nekton every step of the way.

We are delighted to be speaking with Nekton once again as partners, at the Explorer Yachts Summit in Monaco this November. Hosted by Boat International Media the event offers guests valuable insights into the world of explorer yachts and the chance to discuss the unique challenges of designing, operating and taking an explorer to remote destinations.
