CANCELLATION POLICY:

CLAUSE 11- CANCELLATION BY CHARTERER & CONSEQUENCES OF NON-PAYMENT

Should the CHARTERER give notice of cancellation of this Agreement on or at any time before commencement of the Charter Period, some or all of the Charter Fee may be retained by the OWNER determined as follows:

- After this Agreement is signed but before the final installment is due to be paid, the OWNER shall be entitled to retain the first installment.

- After any subsequent installments are due to be paid, the OWNER shall be entitled to retain the first installment and any subsequent installments due. If any of the installments are due to be paid but have not been paid then the OWNER shall have a claim against the CHARTERER for the amount so due. DEFAULT OF PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO PAY Should the CHARTERER fail to pay, after having been given written notice by the OWNER, any amount due under this Agreement, the OWNER reserves the right to treat this Agreement as having been repudiated by the CHARTERER and to retain the full amount of all payments and to recover all sums unpaid and due up to the date of the repudiation.

Notwithstanding the OWNER’s right to receive or retain all payments referred to above, the OWNER shall be under a duty to mitigate the CHARTERER’s loss and in the event that the OWNER is able to re-let the Vessel for all or part of the Charter Period under this Agreement, the OWNER will give credit for the net amount of charter hire arising from such re-letting after deduction of all commissions and other consequential expenses arising from such re-letting. The intention is that the OWNER shall receive the same in net proceeds from any re-letting as would have been received under this Agreement had it not been cancelled or repudiated, so that the OWNER shall reimburse or forgive payments received or due from the CHARTERER only to the extent that the net proceeds from any re-letting which correspond to part or all of the Charter Period exceed the amounts which would have been received under this Agreement. The OWNER shall use his best endeavors to re-let the Vessel and shall not unreasonably withhold his agreement to re-let, although charters which may reasonably be considered detrimental to the Vessel, its reputation, its Crew or its schedule may be refused. If, prior to the date of cancellation, the Vessel has taken on provisions for the Charter, or has utilized the Delivery/Re-delivery Fee as set out on Page One of this Agreement, then the CHARTERER shall pay for these expenses unless all or part can be either refunded by the supplier or transferred to the next Charter, in which case they shall be adjusted accordingly. The Captain and OWNER shall be under a duty to mitigate these expenses where possible.

CHECK-IN:

Check In for all our portfolio yachts is 12:00/12:00 7 days a week except for our Create Your Own Escape Collection that have a 17:00/09:00 check-in/check-out and a Saturday-Saturday only schedule.

Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA):

Advance provisioning allowance. This is the amount prepaid to cover the cost of food, beverages, liquor, and a portion of the fuel for the charter. If underused, the remaining amount is refunded upon disembarkation. If overused, the difference is due upon disembarkation. The APA does not include fuel for the motorized water crafts or extra fuel required to resume an itinerary following any sailing route changes due to inclement weather/sea conditions or client-initiated changes. The APA does NOT constitute an all-inclusive charter and additional funds may be required to cover fuel costs for actual itinerary executed (see section on Fuel Supplement). The APA also does not cover any extra requirements for sailing into international waters (for applicable itineraries only). NOTE: The APA is in USD currency and must be included in the overall total cost of the charter. Payment of the APA will be direct by the charterer to the yacht charter manager and can be paid by credit card (3.5% charterer's bank fee additional applies) or by wire transfer (minimal fee, bank details to be provided with yacht charter agreement). The APA is converted to local currency EURO at time of receipt of cleared funds of 2nd Payment Installment. (for applicable charters with Euro currency requirements). Charters in the Caribbean are also subject to Euro currency depending upon destination.
