I did the transit by 48' sail yacht back in 2008. 65' FP Cat also in 2008 but from Egypt. Many time by ship. If your yacht is a superyacht, I bet your insurers would have a opinion.
When I did it by pleasure yacht we had lots of trinkets to hand out to part time fisherman/possible part time pirates. They have very fast vessels.
Suez pilot is compulsory, as the size goes up the more assistance you would probably be told to take. North RedSea many places to keep your vessel in a marina while you do sight seeing. I remember Port Galib just north of Herguada, another entry port down south but I can't remember name. The Suez transit is a pleasurable experience in my opinion.
Egyptians on this coast are fine, Fuel cheap
in Red Sea, Fine diving
many places in RedSea, Fishing
I would suspect that other fisherman jumped on the Somalie band wagon, knowing the somalies would get the blame, but its probably no more dangerous than back in 2008. Trouble is with next to none doing it, there is no information. If your vessel is smaller, trucking to gulf of Aquaba is a option.
