General Yacht Charter Terms & Conditions . Please make sure that you sign a contract for your charter with all the terms and conditions that apply. The terms below are a general discretion of a charter agreement.
THE OWNER shall at the beginning of the charter period deliver the yacht to the Port of Delivery and the charterer shall take delivery in full commission and working order, seaworthy, clean, in good condition throughout and ready for service, with full equipment, including up-to-date safety and life-saving equipment (including life-jackets for children if any are carried in the charterers party), as required by the yachts registration authority and fitted out as appropriate for a yacht of her size and type and enabling the charterer to use the yacht as set out in clause 13.
The charterer will re-deliver the yacht to THE OWNER at the Port of Re-Delivery free of any debts incurred for the charterers account during the charter period and in as good a condition as when delivery was taken, except for fair wear and tear arising from ordinary use. The charterer may, if he or she wishes, re-deliver the yacht to the Port of Re-Delivery and disembark prior to the end of the charter period but such early re-delivery shall not entitle the charterer to any refund of the charter fee.
The charterer shall restrict the cruising of the yacht to within the cruising area and to within the regions in the cruising area in which the yacht is legally permitted to cruise. The charterer shall also restrict time underway to an average of six (6) hours per day, unless the Captain (Skipper), at his sole discretion, agrees to exceed this time.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PERSONS – RESPONSIBILITY FOR CHILDREN-HEALTH OF THE CHARTERER’S PARTY
The charterer shall not at any time during the charter period permit more than the maximum number of guests sleeping or cruising on board plus, at the sole discretion of the Captain (Skipper), a reasonable number of visitors whilst the yacht is securely moored in port.
If children are taken on board, the charterer shall be fully responsible for their conduct and entertainment and no member of crew shall be held responsible for their conduct or entertainment.
The nature of a charter may render it unsuitable for anybody with physical disability or undergoing medical treatment. By signature of this agreement the charterer warrants the medical fitness of all members of the charterer’s party for the voyage contemplated by this agreement. The charterer and their party undertake to have all necessary visas and vaccinations for the countries to be visited.
THE OWNER shall provide a suitably qualified Captain (Skipper) acceptable to the insurers of the yacht and suitably experienced crew, fed and insured. THE OWNER shall ensure that the Captain (Skipper) and crew comply with the laws and regulations of any country into whose waters the yacht shall enter during the course of this agreement.
CAPTAIN’S (SKIPPER’S) AUTHORITY
THE OWNER shall ensure that the Captain (Skipper) shows the charterer’s the same attention as if the charterer were the owner. The Captain (Skipper) shall comply with all reasonable orders given to him by the charter regarding the management, operation and movement of the yacht, wind, weather and other circumstances permitting. The Captain (Skipper) shall not, however, be bound to comply with any order which, in the reasonable opinion of the Captain (Skipper), might result in the yacht moving to any port or place that is not safe or proper for her to be in, or might result in the charterer failing to re-deliver the yacht upon the expiration of the charter period, or would, in the reasonable opinion of the Captain (Skipper), cause a breach of clause 13 and / or any other clause of this agreement. Further, without prejudice to any other remedy of THE OWNER, if, in the reasonable opinion of the Captain (Skipper), the charterer or any of his or her guests fail to observe any of the provisions in clause 13 and if such failure continues after the Captain (Skipper) has given due a specific warning to the charter in writing in respect of the same, the Captain (Skipper) shall inform THE OWNER and we may terminate the charter forthwith or instruct the Captain (Skipper) to return the yacht to the Port of Re-Delivery and upon such return the charter period shall be terminated. The charterer and his or her guests shall disembark, the charterer having settled all outstanding expenses with the Captain (Skipper) beforehand and the charterer shall not be entitled to be refunded any of the charter fee
The charterer shall be responsible for the operating costs, as specifically defined under the conditions on page one (1) of this agreement, for the entire charter period for him or herself and guests. Should an Advance Provisioning Allowance (A.P.A.) be paid at time of transfer with the charter fee or handed in Euros to the Captain (Skipper) on boarding, then THE OWNER shall ensure that the Captain (Skipper) will exercise due diligence in the expenditure of these funds. The charterer will also be advised by the Captain (Skipper), at intervals throughout the charter period, as to the disbursement of the A.P.A. and shall, if the balance remaining comes insufficient, in the light of current expenditure, pay to the Captain (Skipper), a sufficient further amount to maintain an adequate credit balance. Prior to disembarkation at the end of the charter period, the Captain (Skipper) will provide the charterer with a detailed account of all monies spent (with receipts where possible) and shall repay to the charterer any balance overpaid, likewise the charterer will pay to the Captain (Skipper) prior to disembarkation the balance of any expenses the Captain (Skipper) has allowed to be outstanding. Due to the itinerant nature of the yachts seasonal schedule, THE OWNER cannot accept payment of the A.P.A by cheque, credit card or other negotiable instrument, the charterer should therefore ensure that they have sufficient funds available in local currency to cover all reasonably foreseeable expenses or arrange to deposit additional cleared funds with THE OWNER prior to charter commencement. Should the charterer opt not to pay an A.P.A. then they will be responsible for arranging and paying all costs incurred during the charter period direct with the suppliers of any services or goods received and will be responsible for provisioning the yacht to their satisfaction on charter commencement.

Alternatively if both parties mutually agree, the charter period shall be extended by a time equivalent to the delay.

CANCELLATION BY CHARTERER
Should the charterer give notice of cancellation of this agreement on or at any time before the commencement of the charter period the charterer shall remain liable for all payments due to the THE OWNER prior to and unpaid at the date of cancellation. Should notice of cancellation be given by the charterer or should the charterer fail after having been given notice to pay any amount due under this agreement, THE OWNER shall be entitled to treat this agreement as having been repudiated by the charterer and to retain the full amount of all payments.

The intention is that THE OWNER shall receive the same in net proceeds from any re-letting as we would of received under this agreement.

If the charterer wishes to invoke this clause he or she shall give immediate notice in writing to the Captain (Skipper). The charterer shall remain liable for normal expenses during the period of disablement.
In the event of the actual or consecutive total loss of the yacht or if the yacht is disabled as aforesaid for a consecutive period of more than forty eight (48) hours or one tenth (1/10th) of the charter period, whichever is the shorter, the charterer may terminate this agreement by notice in writing to the Captain (Skipper). As soon as practicable after such termination the charter fee will be repaid by THE OWNER pro rata without interest for that proportion of the charter period outstanding after the date and time on which the loss or disablement occurred.

The charterer shall be entitled to re-cover from THE OWNER the reasonable cost of returning the charter party to the port of re-delivery by scheduled services together with reasonable accommodation expenses incurred.
Alternatively, after a consecutive period of disablement of more than forty eight (48) hours or one tenth (1/10th) of the charter period, whichever the shorter, and dependant on the nature and seriousness of the disablement, by mutual agreement the charterer may elect to remain on board for the duration of the charter period and the charterer will then have no further or additional claim against THE OWNER
