undertakes to repay to the charterer without delay any monies already
paid (if need be, through the agent).

charter company immediately. If a replacement charter is concluded at
the same terms, the charterer shall be repaid any monies he has already
paid, less any handling costs which have arisen, but which shall be not
less than 20% of the charter price. If no replacement charter is
available at the same terms, the charter company may claim the full

voyage cancellation costs insurance. The charter company or the agent
will be pleased to send a quotation for such insurance.

the charterer in so far as there are defects in the replacement yacht.

the command of a yacht or to appoint a responsible skipper with such
capabilities. If the charterer or his skipper does not possess the
necessary licence or certificate of competence to skipper a yacht of the
agreed class, the charter company reserves the right to refuse to hand

for repairs necessary as a result of wear and tear will be reimbursed by

continuously during the charter. Damage due to the motor running dry are
not insured under any circumstances, and is for the account of the
charterer. The motor must not be used when heeling under sail at over

Cancellation by the charterer or reduction of the charter price in the
event of late delivery or defects

1.If the charter company fails to provide the yacht, or at least an
equivalent replacement yacht at the time agreed in the charter party,
the charterer may withdraw from this charter party, but not before 24
hours from the commencement of the charter, and receive full
reimbursement of all payments made under this charter party. If the
charter period is two or more weeks, the minimum time before which the
charterer can withdraw is increased by 24 hours per additional week.

2.All other claims for compensation by the charterer are excluded,
except in the case of intent and gross negligence by the charter
company. If the charterer does not withdraw from the charter, he may
claim for reimbursement of the charter price pro rata for the time for
which the charter company failed to hand over the yacht.

3.Damage to the yacht and its equipment which does not prejudice its
sea-worthiness and which allow the yacht to continue to be used in a
reasonable manner shall not be grounds for withdrawal. A reduction in
the charter price in such a case is also excluded.

Charter company’s liability
1.The charter company shall only be liable towards the charterer and his
crew for loss or damage arising from intent or gross negligence on the
part of the charter company.

2.The charter company shall not be liable for loss or damage caused by
inaccuracies, amendments, mistakes and defects in the ancillary nautical
equipment provided, e.g. marine charts, handbooks, compass, radio
direction finding equipment etc.

3.Claims by the charterer due to the inability of the yacht for use
resulting from damage or total loss caused by the charterer or a third
party during the charter shall be excluded.
Agency’s liability

The agency is only liable as an intermediary for intentional or grossly
negligent dereliction of duty in the performance of its services as an

Charterer’s liability
1.The charterer shall indemnify the charter company against all civil
and criminal consequences of third party claims arising from actions and
failures to act on the part of the charterer including all legal costs
in the country of delivery and abroad. The charterer accepts the yacht
on his own responsibility.

2.If the charterer leaves the yacht at any place other than the agreed
location for any reason whatsoever, the charterer shall bear the costs
for the return of the yacht by water or by land. If the return of the
yacht extends beyond the time period of the charter, the yacht shall be
deemed to be returned by the client at the time of its arrival in the
agreed harbour.

3.Late return of the yacht and non-usability of the yacht caused by the
charterer shall be grounds for claims for compensation by the charter

4.Attention is drawn to the fact that conclusion of hull insurance by
the charter company does not mean that the charterer is not liable for
loss or damage not covered by such insurance, or for loss or damage for
which the insurance expressly reserved the right of recourse to the
charterer. This applies particularly to damage caused by gross
negligence, intent or failure to observe the conditions of the charter
party, and for any consequential loss or damage.

5.The conditions of the insurance, which we will gladly provide on
request, are an integral part of this contract. The deductible excess
for each loss is to be borne by the charterer and may differ from the
deposit paid. The deposit will be repaid without delay on the return of
the yacht and equipment in good condition. Loss and damage will be
off-set against the deposit. Loss and damage not covered by the deposit
or the insurance shall be paid without delay by the charterer.

Conclusion of an extended “Skipper’s liability insurance” (which covers
crew’s liability amongst themselves and recovery of losses to the
chartered yacht in the event of substantiated gross negligence) and a
consequential loss insurance is strongly recommended. The charter
company and broker will be pleased to send all necessary documentation.

*Miscellaneous/subsidiary agreements/ information / separability clause*
1. The charter period may only be extended with the agreement of the
charter company. If there should be obvious errors in the invoicing of
the charter price and the extras, the charter company and the charterer
have the right and the obligation to correct the charter price in line
with the valid price list. This does not affect the legality of this

2.Oral undertakings and subsidiary agreements are only valid after
written confirmation by the charter company. This applies also to any
waiver of the requirement for written form. All care is taken in the
preparation of information, but information is given without guarantee.

3.The invalidity of individual provisions shall not affect the validity
of the remaining provisions of the charter party. The parties agree to
replace invalid provisions by valid provisions most closely approaching
the invalid provisions.

Place of jurisdiction, applicable law.
All claims relating to the relationship between charterer and agency
shall be subject to the law applicable to the registered office of the
agency; the place of jurisdiction shall be the registered office of the
broker. All claims relating to the relationship between charterer and
charter company shall be subject to the law applicable at the registered
office of the charter company, and the place of jurisdiction shall be
the registered office of the charter company.
