The takeover of the yacht takes place on Saturdays after 5.00 pm. Upon taking over the yacht (check-in), the Charterer shall check and carefully inspect the condition of the craft and equipment in conformity with an inventory list. Any latent defects to the craft or equipment that the Charter Operator could not be aware of at the time of delivery of the craft as well as any defects that might occur after delivery shall not give the Charterer any right to price reduction.

In case of a delay due to bad weather conditions, the Charterer shall bear all the costs resulting from the delay for Charter Operator.
For this reason we strongly advise that the Charterer schedules the route very carefully and returns to the marina in the evening of the day before the craft is to be returned.
A deposit in accordance with the applicable rates shall be paid upon delivery of the craft and shall be refunded without deductions provided the craft is returned undamaged and in time.

The craft is insured against third party damage (compulsory insurance) and covered by a comprehensive insurance amounting to the value of the craft.
In case the Charterer has an accident while sailing and the Charterer is not liable to pay for the damage (in case of normal wear and tear or in case the damage exceeds the sum insured), no repair shall be undertaken without prior consent (instructions) being given by the Charter Operator or the Charter Base Manager.
In case of a major accident as well as in case of another craft being involved, the accident shall be reported to the competent harbour authorities and a report shall be made for the insurance company (course of events, photos, damage). Should the Charterer fail to fulfill all his/her obligations, the Charterer can be held liable for the damage incurred in full.
Damage to sails is not covered by the insurance and the costs shall be paid by the Charterer. This shall apply to any damage to the engine(s) as well resulting from lack of oil in the engine. The Charterer shall check the engine oil level daily. The Charterer's personal belongings and the crew are not covered by the Charter Operator's insurance.
