I had to get my sister to bring one over from the States. Called a 'jimmy-proof lock'.

 

 

I've also been looking at electronic (remote-operated) locks with a similar mechanism called a 'tiger-claw'. Not such a great idea as they use batteries.

The hasp looks like it's bolted through the steel so that's good as long as the bolts have some sort of dome head on the other side. However, the lock itself looks like it might just be screwed into the wooden lining in which case the screws could come out fairly easily if the door is prized open with a large screwdriver or a crowbar. 

 

A lot of boaters make the same mistake. There's not much point having such a good lock is it's poorly fitted, assuming it is screwed in. Anything screwed into wooden lining is vulnerable but if you're just mooring in a secure marina you'll be fine.
