Frequently Asked Questions – basic questions

1. Are there any additional charges?

The following additional charges may apply:

  • Deposit – Refundable Security Deposit
  •  Fuel – The boat should be delivered topped up with fuel.
  • Options – Any optional extras that you might have specifically requested.

2. What is the security deposit?

The boat is comprehensively insured, including third Party cover, beyond a deductible “excess” figure.
The Refundable Security Deposit is held against the yacht’s insurance excess and, if there is no damage or loss to the boat or her equipment, this amount is refunded to you.

Exception: for any loss or damage caused by gross negligence or wanted or willful misuse by the charterer or by any of his party, to a value in excess of the Security Deposit amount, the charterer will be held liable for the total amount of loss or damage.
Normally, we will refund the Security Deposit immediately at the end of the charter. However, if any damage and/or loss are extensive, the deposit or appropriate proportion will be returned, if applicable, as soon as possible after full assessment of rectifying such damage or loss has been made.

The Refundable Security Deposit covers:

  • Loss of or damage to the boat or to third parties.
  • Loss of or damage to the equipment listed in the inventory and given to the charterer at check-in.
  • Costs incurred if the boat is returned in an extremely dirty condition.
  • Cost of returning the yacht to the prearranged harbor if the charterer fails to do so by the scheduled date and time.
  • Cost of refuelling if the boat is returned without refilled tank.

The payment of the Refundable Security Deposit is designed to cover only one incident of a substantial nature at any one time, ie: in case of loss or damage to equipment of significant value such as outboard engine or dinghy, the charterer will have the right to an immediate replacement whilst on charter, provided that the charterer pays a new Refundable Security Deposit immediately upon receipt of replacement or repair.
The Refundable Security Deposit is payable at the yacht’s base before embarkation.
