Mandatory and optional extras

7. All mandatory and optional extras are payable prior to embarkation AT BASE with cash only.

a. Cleaning fees are mandatory and non-commissionable. Cleaning fees are in addition to charter rates per charter per yacht, and to be paid at base in cash at check-in.

Monohulls: €250

Catamarans: €270

b. Optional extras include skipper, crew change, fast track pack, optional equipment & charter packs & services. Refer to the price list or our webage for full list of optional extras available.

c. Crew Cancellation: If notice of cancellation of crew services (skipper, hostess, chef and any extras by independent providers) is given 40 or fewer days prior to departure, 25% of agreed services is due.

Security Deposit Payment

8. As per Charter Party Terms, Charterer will provide at Base before embarkation a Security Deposit as per Owner Offer; payment by credit card, VISA or MasterCard only (no debit cards).

The Security Deposit applies per insurable event (damage or loss). If the yacht is returned without damages, the deposit is released back to Charterer. For damages of an amount less than Security Deposit, Owner retains the amount required for repairs and the balance is released back to Charterer. For damages in amounts more than the Security Deposit, Owner retains full amount of Security Deposit.

This means that should an incident occur, in order to be covered against a second incident, the Charterer must replenish the Security Deposit to the initial amount. In any other case, Owner may treat the charter agreement as repudiated by Charterer and end the charter.

 

Security Deposit Visa or MasterCard, between €2800 and €3500, amount depending on particular yacht.

Taxes on Payment

9. Full 24% VAT rate is applicable, which the Charterer must pay. A 50% discount at a rate of 12% VAT is possible, under the condition that the skipper provides upon return a declaration, stamped by the destination port authorities, stating he arrived at a port which lies at a distance greater than 6 nautical miles from the initial port of embarkation. This regulation has been put into effect to verify valid and genuine sailing charters by reputable charter operators, and to tax payments accordingly.

Fast Track Pack (early check in)

10. The charter agreement specifies access to the yacht by 5 pm on day of embarkation.

If Charterer prefers access to the yacht (including completion of check in process) at an earlier time of 2 pm, this ‘Fast Track Pack’ option is available for a fee of €150, to be requested and paid by at the base (in cash)

 

Any later requests for the ‘Fast Track Pack’ option requested at the base, will be upon availability.

 

Earlier access is subject to previous charter of yacht in question returned on time and without major damages. If ND Sails encounters delays (repairs to yacht, for example), and cannot meet the early check in time, the Charterer receives a refund of this fee and ND Sails reverts to meeting the standard access time of 5 pm on the day of embarkation.

Sunday Check In

11. ND Sails will accommodate Charterer requests for Sunday check in (instead of standard Saturday), at no charge provided the request is made at least one week prior to day of embarkation.

Any Sunday check in requests made within the week prior to day of embarkation result in a late fee of €150.
