INSURANCE
The yacht is fully insured in the case of damage by a third party, and fully insured for all the damages resulting from force measured up to the registered amount of the value of the yachts for the risks according to the insurance policy. The yacht crew is insured.

In case of some bigger averages, as well as of those where the other boats are involved, the charterer is obliged to report the case to the authorized harbor-master's office.

All damages and/or losses covered by the insurance must be immediately reported to the Charteree.

If damage occurs during the cruise and Charterer is not to be charged (due to normal exhaustion or in case of overdraft of the guarantee sum) he must receive permission (instruction) from the Charteree or base manager for an adequate repair. Insurance covers all the damages by franchise caused by weather or from the other natural disasters, but not the damages made on purpose.

Charges for purpose made damages are not limited by deposit; Charterer must pay all expenses caused by damage made on purpose. The damages on the sails are not covered by insurance and the Charterer bears the charges for these damages.

The charterer is obliged to check the oil level in the engine daily. The damages on the engine caused by the lack of oil are not covered by insurance. If the charterer does not fulfill his obligations, he can be in full charged for the costs of damage.

Personal property, as well as that of the crew members is not insured in this policy, so it is recommended to take out a separate insurance.

 

SAFETY DEPOSIT
When checking in at the starting marina, a safety deposit has to be paid by the Charterer to the Charteree, the amount is listed for every yacht. Safety deposit can be made in cash, cheques or credit cards. The deposit is refundable in its total amount at the checking out from the yacht; if performed within the contracted date and time, the yacht is in the same condition as it was at the checking in - clean and in proper, good condition, undamaged.

In the case of loss of /or damage on the equipment, particular parts of the yacht or the yacht itself, Charteree shall retain the amount (a part or the whole deposit), which corresponds to the value of repair, acquisition and / or purchasing the equipment or particular part of the yacht.

Even if the yacht charter agreement includes the skipper, the Charterer is required to pay a deposit that does not cover costs related to the skipper's negligence and careless operation of the yacht and equipment.

 

TAKEOVER AND RETURN OF THE YACHT (CHECK IN / CHECK OUT)
The yachts are put at Charterer's disposal at the appointed time in the agreed marina. When taking over the yacht, the Charterer is obliged to check and carefully examine the condition of the yacht and its equipment according to the check in list. Only completely equipped yachts, with full fuel and water tanks, and in perfect condition well be handed over to the Charterer.

Any possible objections have to be made before the start of navigation.

Any hidden defects of the yacht or its equipment, not known to the Charteree at the time when handing over the yacht, as well as any defects that eventually occur after the yacht had been handed over to the Charterer, give no right for a request to lower the charter fee. If further sailing is not possible for any reason, or the date of the return of the yacht will be exceeded (For this reason we suggest a good forward planning of the sailing route.) the manager of the base must be called immediately for further instructions.

The Charterer must hand over the yacht at the port indicated in the contract at the agreed time. If the Charterer is delayed returning the yacht or brings it to another place which is not agreed, the Charterer agrees and guarantees to pay for every delay up to three hours the price of a daily charter and for every delay of more than 3 hours the triple price of daily charter fee, plus any additional expenses that arise for the Charteree because of reasons of force majeure, about which the Charterer has to inform the Charteree immediately.

Should the gas tank(s) not be full, the Charteree will deduct the required amount to fill the gas tank(s) from the deposit.

The Charteree reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if in the judgment of their representatives the charterer is not competent for any reason to operate the yacht, or to give the instructions on the charterer's expense.

  • costs for the days of waiting covered by the Charteree
