Private Navy 2013

Simon Murray, chairman of the firm behind the private navy

BRITAIN’S first private navy in almost two centuries is being created by a group of businessmen to take on the Somali pirates who are terrorising a 2.5m square mile expanse of the Indian Ocean.

Its armed vessels — including a 10,000-ton mother ship and high-speed armoured patrol boats — will be led by a former Royal Navy commodore. He is recruiting 240 former marines and other sailors for the force.

It will escort its first convoy of oil tankers, bulk carriers — and possibly an occasional yacht — along the east coast of Africa in late March or April.

Typhon, the company behind the venture, is chaired by Simon Murray, a millionaire businessman who joined the French Foreign Legion as a teenager and walked unsupported to the South Pole aged 63.
