Terms and Conditions


Charter rates will be subject to varying rates of VAT within EC waters. This is not included in the charter rates.


These may vary from the definitions shown below, the Charter Information page and the Prices pages. Please refer to the charter agreement (you will receive this when booking) for the specific terms of WMT (Western Mediterranean Terms). The charter rate includes the hire and insurance of the motor yacht and moorings at her home port, including water and electricity.

All rates are inclusive of skipper and hostess.

The motor yacht should be returned in a clean and tidy condition with full fuel and water tanks. Any items lost must be reported in detail immediately to the Captain. Charters returned late will be liable for charges at twice the charter rate for each day or part day.

Agency Fees

All Broker Charter Rates will incur agency fees on top of the costs shown. Private Client Booking Rates are shown at the final price and do not include any agency fees.

Charter Agreement

All charters booked will be confirmed by a charter agreement signed by the charterer and the yacht owner.


Where rates refer to a week it is for a 7 night charter. Embarkation 16.00hrs on the first day of charter. Disembarkation 09.00hrs after the 7th night of charter.


Where disembarkation is 09.00hrs the vessel must be on its own mooring no later than 20.00hrs with full fuel tanks the previous day.

Footwear While On Board

Whilst on board (if not in bare feet) we require you to wear non-marking soft shoes, deck shoes or trainers.


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.


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, a member of your party, or a member of your crew. Should the vessel be seized having been found with illegal and/or controlled substances on board brought on by the charterer (or a member 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.

Holding Deposit

During your charter we will require a holding deposit equal to 50% of one week’s charter. This deposit may be in cash, traveller’s cheques or a banker’s draft and will normally be returned to you within 48 hours of the safe return of your 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.
