Vessel terms & Conditions


All names as per passport, nationalities, and passport numbers should be provided upon booking of the Yacht & sent per email upon booking of the Yacht or latest one week prior to embarkation so as to prepare the Passenger List document required for permission to charter.  Passengers on board should have their passports or identity on board during the cruise. Should the passports presented not match the passengers on board, the Port Authorities may issue fines accordingly.



For reservation an advance payment of 50% is required, the remaining amount to be paid the latest 30 days before embarkation. The reservation is valid once we trace the payment on our account.



The Cruise Price includes the yacht rental, Crew, all taxes, mooring fees if in harbors, the fuel consumption of the itinerary selected, light snacks, and soft drinks. On the catamarans, sailing yachts & the traditional boat a hot meal is included. Prices vary according to the yacht type, size, and availability of the day. All prices are calculated based on the selected itinerary and the price of fuel at the moment this email was composed. Please note that in case of a significant fuel price raise and/or itinerary change on the day of the cruise, additional fuel costs would apply. The client will be informed and the difference must be paid the latest before embarkation. The client may choose not to pay the extra cost but in that case, a shorter itinerary will be done in order to use the fuel paid.



In the unfortunate case of cancellation of the charter by the CHARTERER, for any reason, the following cancellation policy will apply, depending on the time interval between the booking confirmation and the cancellation date:

i. Policy of “Dossier expenses’’ (Euro 300) will be applied for bookings canceled in a time period up to 90 days prior to the boat embarkation date.

ii. For bookings canceled between 90 and 60 days prior to embarkation, 30% of the total cost of the cruise is charged.

iv. For bookings canceled less than 30 days prior to embarkation, 100% is charged.

v. In case of a CHARTERER no-show, the total cruise price will be charged.


In case the boat owner has to cancel the cruise due to a “Force Majeure” no cancellation fee will apply and the full amount paid will be refunded.


In the case that the port authorities do not give permission to the CAPTAIN to cruise due to bad weather conditions, the cruise will be postponed and the CHARTERER will be proposed alternative dates within a range of 3-4 days before and after the desired date.

In case the CHARTERER does not want to accept any of the alternative dates, the full amount paid will be refunded.
