A number of superyacht owners with craft moored at an eastern Caribbean marina have grouped together to ask a Texas-based security company to provide them with a comprehensive package of protective services.

Global Security Agency Inc (GSA) will provide security at the unnamed facility, which will include protecting celebrities and VIPs at the marina’s yacht club.

“We are pleased to be able to fulfill this important agreement with the superyacht owners and marina,” says GSA’s CEO, Larry E Lunger. “We have a proven record of protecting dignitaries and VIPs and look forward to a long and beneficial relationship with the marina.

“Given the clientele and the services to be provided, we expect this contract to be worth in excess of US$2m for 2012.”
