Charter Information
 
In this pages we will match you with a boat that fits your requirements and a crew that has similar interests. Rather than mailing long lists of boats, we send you an initial selection of yachts we would recommend, based on the preferences you give us. This information will contain a detailed description of the useful points which you may need before or during your charter holiday. We then discuss the features that you like in both boat and crew, sending you more selections as necessary. Selecting the right crew is often more important than the boat. All of our yachts have professional crew. 
 
Reservation
 
When you have selected a yacht, and the dates and ports of embarkation /disembarkation have been agreed upon, we will prepare a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). We will send you this agreement to be signed and returned to us. At this point 50% of the charter Fee should be transferred to a special bank account to secure the yacht on your behalf. The agreement then will be sent to owner for his countersignature and a completed copy is returned to you for your retention. The balance of the charter Fee, the advance towards provisioning of the yacht (A.P.A.), V.A.T. and any applicable delivery or redelivery fee will be due for payment one month prior to embarkation. Cancellation and curtailment insurance can be arranged on request to cover the loss of Charter Fee if you, for any reason, decide to cancel you reservation. The approximate cost for such coverage is 2% of the charter fee and we highly recommend it. 
 
Getting on Board
 
We will send you full details on how to reach the boarding place, we also can arrange flight reservation, limousine and what ever makes your getting aboard and getting back home with all comfort and convenience.

These forms should be completed and returned to us so we can prepare the yacht for your cruise.
