General advice for all charters
Whilst on board (if not in bare feet) we require you to wear non-marking soft shoes, deck shoes or trainers. Remember to pack a hat and sun cream. Please pack your belongings in a soft collapsible travel bag – no suitcases will be allowed on board. Stowage is limited so please pack sensibly.
Your motor yacht is insured for your use during the charter period. It is mandatory to make your own arrangements for your personal insurance.
Flights need to be booked well in advance, particularly in high season.
It is strictly forbidden to take illegal and/or controlled substances on board unless a medical practitioner has prescribed them specifically for a specific medical condition suffered by you or a member of your party. Should the vessel be seized having been found with illegal and/or controlled substances on board brought on by the charterer (or one of his/her party) then the charterer will be personally responsible for unlimited damages, including full legal costs and expenses incurred in regaining possession of the vessel.
During your charter we will require a holding deposit of 50% of the charter fee or £5,000, whichever is the lowest. This deposit may be in cash, traveller’s cheques or a banker’s draft and will normally be returned to you within 14 days of the safe return of your vessel.
Bookings and cancellations
We require a 50% deposit to confirm you reservation. The balance of this must be received 8 weeks prior to the charter. A full refund less a €250 administration charge is given for cancellations received in writing up to 12 weeks prior to the charter date. Cancellations made within 12 weeks will only be refunded subject to the re-selling of your charter date, less our administration charge of €250 plus any additional advertising costs required to re-charter the vessel.
It is customary to “tip” the crew if you have been happy with their service and many opt for around 10% of the charter fee. It is not however obligatory and guests will use their discretion for their particular experience.
