The damage compensation in amount of 100 EUR will be executed in case of filthiness of the vessel (negligence to the property) and failure to comply with the house rules.
3. RUNNING EXPENSES: After take-over-expenditure for port dues, water, fuel, oil and any other
stores required, as well as the repair of any damage or breakdown that may occur while the
Vessel is in the Charterer’s care, and which are not the result of normal wear and tear, shall be
made by the Charterer at his/her expense, provided that he/she has previously obtained the
consent of the Operator to a technically suitable repair. In the case of repairs to
damage or failure clearly resulting from normal wear and tear, the Charterer shall previously
obtain the Operator's consent with regard to the costs and technical suitability of these repairs, and
the Charterer shall collect the relevant receipts against which he/she shall be refunded by the
Operator at the end of the charter period. No other compensation claims will be recognized.
4. RESPONSIBILITIES OF CHARTERER: For acts of negligence by the Charterer for which the
Operator is responsible to a third party, the Charterer will pay all expenses to the Operator for the
material and/or legal costs resulting from such acts or negligence. The Charterer is particularly
responsible for the Vessel in the case of its impoundment by any official body because of its
use in improper or illegal action during the period of the Charter.
Charterer should abide by all rules provided during the check-in procedure and is fully responsible for handling the vessel and its engine.

- the entire amount of the charter rental in the case of cancellation by the Charterer within
a calendar month prior to the beginning of the Charter period.
6. DELIVERY/REDELIVERY: Check-in is at 17.00 hrs. and check-out at 08:30 hrs.
In case of delayed vessel return the Operator has the right to charge one day of rental to the guest.
The Operator undertakes to deliver the Vessel in good working condition. If the Operator fails to make the
Vessel available to the Charterer at the agreed time and place (regardless of the reason
thereof), the Charterer may claim a refund from the Operator for each day on which the Vessel
was not at his/her disposal. Provided that the scheduled charter commitment permits, the
Charterer can prolong the period of the charter by the same length of time by which delivery was
delayed. If the Operator is unable to deliver the Vessel at the agreed upon place 24 hours after
the deadline or make available a similar or better quality vessel, the Charterer may withdraw from
the contract or claim a refund for as many daily rental charges as the Vessel was unavailable. No
other claims for compensation will be recognized. The Charterer is obliged to inspect the
condition of the Vessel and items of equipment as per the checklist. All objections must be made
prior to initial sailing. Any shortages, defects in Vessel or equipment unnoticed at the time of
transfer from Operator or Charterer may not subsequently be reclaimed from the cost of rental.
7. INSURANCE: The insurance is determined by the conditions stipulated by the insurance
company which the Operator has insured the Vessel with. Damages covered by insurance which
are not immediately reported to the insurance company, will not be acknowledged as per the
insurance policy. In this case the Charterer is personally responsible for total damages as a result
of not reporting or late reporting of damages. Sails are not insured and the Charterer is thus
responsible for any damage except for the damages arising from normal usage or as a result of
breakage of the mast. Furthermore, personal possessions and the Vessel’s crew are not insured.
We recommend that the Charterer insures all personal possessions and the crew of the vessel on

Charterer will also immediately notify the Operator of such an event. In case of the disappearance
of the Vessel, impossibility of navigation, its confiscation or the prohibition of further sailing by
government officials or other persons, the Charterer undertakes immediately to notify an
authorized official and the Operator. Damage to the underwater part of the Vessel must be

9. RESTRICTIONS ON NAVIGATION AND USE OF CANVAS: As weather conditions dictate,
the Charterer is obliged to promptly reduce canvas and not allow the Vessel to sail under an
amount of canvas greater than one ensuring comfortable sailing without excessive strain or stress
on rigging and sails; not to sail the Vessel in any area insufficiently covered by the charts at
his/her disposal or without having previously thoroughly studied the charts of the area and other
relevant printed material provided on board; not to sail the Vessel at night without all navigation
lights functioning or without adequate watch on deck.
10. RESTRICTIONS ON LEAVING PORT: Charterer shall not leave port or anchorage if the wind
force is or is predisposed to be over seven (7) on the Beaufort Scale (25 knots) or if the harbor

parts such as engine, sails, rigging, bilge pump, anchoring gear, navigation lights, compass,
safety equipment etc., or if any of the above parts are not in good working condition; neither shall
the Charterer leave port or anchorage without sufficient reserves of fuel in general, and especially

license and the VHF certificate, or will leave navigation of the Vessel to a crew member who has
the relevant permits or licenses.
12. SAILING TEST: The Operator (or his/her representatives) may require the Charterer and
his/her crew to demonstrate their competence in handling and navigating the Vessel safely by
actually operating the Vessel at sea with the Operator (or his/her representative) aboard. Should
the Charterer and/or his/her crew fail to satisfy the Operator in this respect, the Operator may
terminate this agreement as stated above, or place aboard the Vessel a seaman if one
acceptable to both the Operator and the Charterer is available, at the expense of the Charterer
for as many days as the Operator shall consider necessary for the safety of the Vessel and her
passengers. Any time required for this test of the Charterer’s competence and seamanship will be

Alike in bareboat charter, the Charterer is held equally liable for other damage that he or the rest of the crew may cause to the yacht or its equipment or its interior inventory (such as window glasses, upholstery, woodwork, etc.). The Charterer is obliged to respect all safety instructions announced by the skipper of the yacht, because the skipper is the only responsible person for the yacht itself. The Charterer is obliged to provide food and pay for the city tax for the skipper and a cabin/berth will be designated for him onboard. The skipper is supposed to navigate and sail the yacht for approximately maximum 8 hours a day (unless otherwise agreed) and is not obliged to sail by night.
