Security Deposit (Bareboat Sailing Yachts only)
With the exception of crewed charters, on bareboat and skippered
charters we request you to pay a refundable security deposit, (which varies
according to the size of the yachts) at the time of embarkation. This can be
paid by cash, travelers’ checks, certified bank drafts or credit card. Payment
by credit card can only be used for the security deposit, not for balance
payments or for the payment of options rented. Please not that, personal checks
are not accepted. The security deposit is to cover, in the unforeseen event, any
possibility of any minor damages which are not covered by the insurance of the
yacht. Upon the safe return of the yacht it will be returned in full to you. The
charterer may also choose an optional insurance (non-refundable) of security
deposit also payable by credit card. (Minimum charter: 7 days).
our yachts are fully insured against damage to hull, gear and equipment as well
as for third party liability. Please give your attention that yacht's insurance
does not cover your personal belongings and injuries.
strongly suggest you to buy travel insurance, including cancellation insurance
to protect your booking deposit.
all our bases, provisioning is not a serious problem, since there are
supermarkets inside or close to the marina of departure. If you want to order
in advance, fill in our provisioning form and everything will be delivered to
you upon your arrival on the yacht. Please ask Yachts-Sailing.com sales
consultants for our provisions lists.
Please note that our yachts are chartered bareboat, under the condition
that at least two members of the crew have a sailing certificate (one sailing
certificate is compulsory for sailing in Greece, Turkey, Italy and in Croatia
where a VHF license is also required), or at least sufficient qualifications,
to be determined by us, through a resume of your sailing experience, that we
will kindly ask you to complete. Of course the love for the sea and sailing is
what is required for a skippered or crewed charter.
