EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE ONBOARDING A CHARTER
What type of yacht should I charter?
No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats. For an exclusive experience, we recommend chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, we have access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 – 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask!
What should I bring?
Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with us regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, we recommend using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple!
What happens in the case of bad weather?
If the weather is no go at all and the crew decides it is best not to go out for hte sea, we recommend postponing your booking to a later date by coordinating with our team via whatsapp or email or, if not possible, will fully refund you.
Is fuel included in the charter price?
Fuel is included when you rent or charter a boat with skipper. When you rent a boat without skipper fuel is not included in the rental price and you will have to fill the tank before the check-out. Please contact us if you would like an estimate of the fuel cost of booking this boat.
Am I insured in case of problems with the boat at sea?
All boats available are insured. If the boat is damaged upon return, the boat’s insurance will cover up to a certain amount, and the rest will be taken out of your deposit. Please note that most incidents are settled out of court with the boat owner.
How to change the date or time of my booking?
Have you booked a boat, but the date or time is no longer suitable for you? Don’t worry, we here to help! You can change your reservation depending on our partner’s availability and their cancellation policy. Get in touch with our team via whatsapp or email so we can help!
What if you cancel the booking?
Although rare, sometimes we may need to cancel a reservation. We understand that this can significantly impact your plans and will never happen without a verifiable justification. Rest assured that in the unlikely event that it happens you will automatically receive a refund or we can help you find a similar or better boat to rebook.
