Maritime Anti Piracy Consultants

Why IMAAG? IMAAG is not another security company offering armed guards for your vessel; IMAAG is an advisory group that ensures you make the right decisions when considering which product or armed service provider to use.  IMAAG recognises the BMP 4 as an excellent foundation of which to base your ship's security upon; however we cover every aspect of making your vessel as safe as possible, whether it is a small private sailing yacht, slow moving tug or 400m commercial ship.  IMAAG is not affiliated to any product or company.
