Arrival at the base
This is the moment when your cruising vacation on the yacht begins ... You definitely need to have the charter contract, voucher, skipper's license, VHF license and personal documents. It is very important to mention in advance the estimated time of arrival to the base, so that we can try arrange embarkation as soon as possible. Regular check-in is scheduled from 16.00 pm. Upon arrival at the base you should go to the office to resolve the final paperwork. You need to show the original skipper's license and VHF, take a verified list of passengers and pay a security deposit, or if there is an option to pay insurance on the security deposit. If you arrive by car, the staff at the base will help you find a parking place.
When you've completed the paperwork in the office, you are ready for check-in. Upon boarding, together with base staff, you will inspect the boat inventory and the equipment of the chartered boat. Be careful when checking equipment to avoid further difficulties after departure on your cruise. If everything is in order, both parties sign the inventory list and you can set sail. During the charter, you have contacts for technical support and eventual intervention. Any damage or defect on the rented boat must be reported immediately to the base.
Do not forget to fill water tanks and fuel tanks before disembarkation. A return from your cruise to the base on Friday afternoon is recommended. Check-out will be done on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. At the checkout, you will be needing to go through and check the inventory list again. The condition of the boat should be the same as upon embarkation. In the case of defects, or any other problems during the charter, it is very important to specify everything in writing on the inventory list. Then again, both sides will sign the boat inventory list.
