On a slightly different tack - see what I did there? - try:

Seized by Max Hardberger.

Captain Hardberger is a really interesting guy, who at one time specialised in recovering ships that had been seized by disreputable repair yards. After the scheduled repairs, these yards hold the ships on some trumped up reason, such as more work needing doing before a sea-worthiness certificate can be issued. Captain Hardberger sneaks onto the ship with a skeleton crew, gets the main engine going and steams the ship out to international waters.

It is a very good and interesting read, with hints of James Bond and Andy McNab, but without any violence.
