SAIL PUPPY LTD. (UK)

YACHT CHARTER TERMS & CONDITIONS

In the framework of the Covid-19 pandemic and its repercussions, we understand that you might not be finding it easy to commit to your next sailing holidays in Greece. It is only natural, that you would prefer to book your sailing vacations with additional flexibility and more freedom of choice, under the current circumstances.

To make things easier for you, we now offer the following additional booking/rebooking options when considering coronavirus consequences and limitations to travel, which update and complement our usual Charter Terms & Conditions below:

 

  1. A change of booking dates within year 2020 shall be accepted free of charge, without any cancellation fees, for pending yacht charters with Sail Puppy Ltd. up to 60 days prior to the embarkation date (there was a 30% cancellation fee in such cases, normally). Customers will only be charged any positive yacht charter price difference arising from rescheduling their sailing vacations.

  2. For new bookings with our company and until further notice, a reduced 30% down payment - instead of the usual 50% - will be accepted for securing a yacht charter. A further 20% will be payable 30 days after booking confirmation, while the 50% balance payment remains payable up to a month prior to embarkation.

  3. If a customer is proven to be impeded to travel to his/her yacht delivery port due to official coronavirus travel restrictions, Sail Puppy Ltd. will suggest alternative sailing holiday dates within 2020 - depending on availability of the chartered sailboat - or even a complete holiday rescheduling for the year 2021. The customer would only be charged any price difference owed exclusively to a change of season for the new dates.

  • Our yacht charter prices include:

  1. 12% VAT and all commissions

  2. A dinghy with a small outboard engine

  3. GPS instrument, autopilot and gas canisters for cooking purposes

  4. Marina fees for the first and last nights of the journey, at the agreed embarkation and disembarkation ports

  5. Full yacht fuel tank(s) and fresh water tank(s)

 

  • The end-cleaning fee is an obligatory extra payable in cash upon embarkation and includes one set of bed linen, towels and quilts per cabin, per week of yacht charter.

 

  • ​Not included in the charter price are the following costs:

  1. Skipper and/or hostess, who can be hired upon request for an extra fee

  2. Diesel used during the journey

  3. Outboard engine gasoline

 

  • Upon return of the yacht to the agreed disembarkation port, it will be fully refueled with diesel at the cost of the customer, who thus will only pay for the diesel actually used, as boats are always delivered with full diesel tanks.

  • A refundable security deposit ranging between €2,000 and €4,000 for yachts up to 65' must be provided to the shipowner by the clients upon embarkation, via authorisation (not actual charge) of this amount on a credit/debit card. The deposit is subsequently returned in full at the end of their journey by the shipowner when no damage has been incurred to the yacht. Otherwise, the fair repair cost of any damage(s) caused and/or for replacing any lost equipment shall be withheld by the ship-owner (not Sail Puppy Ltd.) and only the balance will be returned to the clients. The actual amount of the security deposit to be provided depends upon the type, size, model and age of the boat chartered as shipowners see fit and it will be known prior to booking a yacht charter with Sail Puppy Ltd..

  • A yacht charter is governed by a charter contract. A yacht charter booking with Sail Puppy is considered to be valid and active only after its yacht charter contract has been signed by the client and the down payment (50% of the charter price) has been duly provided. The yacht charter has to have been fully paid for one (1) month prior to embarkation, at the very latest. Failure to do so leads to the cancelation of the yacht charter and any money already provided by the customer shall be withheld by the shipowner as cancelation fees.

  • If a customer cancels his/her yacht charter, the following cancelation fees shall apply:

  1. For bookings cancelled 60 days or more prior to the embarkation date, a cancelation fee amounting to 30% of the total charter price will be withheld

  2. For bookings canceled between 59 and 31 days prior to the embarkation date, a cancelation fee amounting to 50% of the total charter fee will be withheld

  3. For bookings canceled 30 days or less prior to the embarkation date, the full amount (100%) of the charter fee will be withheld as a cancelation fee

  4. In case the sailboat of the yacht charter being canceled is ultimately rebooked for the period being canceled, any cancelation fees will be refunded

  • Cancelation fees are imposed and retained in full by shipowners – not by Sail Puppy Ltd. – as compensation against charter days lost. Sail Puppy Ltd. does not retain or receive any cancelation fees when a yacht charter is canceled.
