If you are really interested in chartering one of our yachts or even to get an offer for specific dates, you have to follow the 3 steps procedure below.
The first step, of course, is to contact us. You can send us a request form for the period you wish to sail and within a few hours, you will get back an answer with the availability and our offer for the charter fee.
Once you get the offer and you are really interested in it, you can “block” the yacht for seven days, so you will have time to think about it and organize your charter with your crew mates. In that case, we say that the boat is under “option” and we can not offer her in other requests. The boat will be under option only if you send us a mail requesting it. The first reply from us with the availability and the price doesn’t constitute an “option”. The second mail from you is necessary to continue further and block the yacht for the next seven days. If we don’t have any reply after a week then your “option” will not be valid anymore.
As soon as you have made the final decision, you contact us and we proceed to the payment of your booking. The confirmation from your side must include dates, the number of persons, exactly arranged prices, and other special requirements.We shall then reconfirm the booking immediately to you by giving you a charter-code number reference and all necessary payment and charter information.
The payment is done separately for the boat and the skipper.
Skipper’s fee of 1050EUR must be paid the date you will start your trip.
The 50% of the remaining of the charter fee should be done by the moment you will book the charter and the balance of 50% one month prior your cruise.
For example, if the offer is for 3100EUR you have to pay:
- You subtract from the offer’s price the skipper’s fee: 3100-1050=2050EUR
- You make a bank transfer or through credit card to GWY the amount 50%*2050=1025EUR
- One month prior your cruise you make again a transfer of 50%*2050=1025EUR
- The date you start your trip you pay for your skipper the amount of 1050EUR
The payment for the boat could be done either by using the safe environment of our bank website, charging your credit card, or by wiring money directly to our bank account.
If you cancel your charter, our cancellation policy is described below.
- Up to 60 days prior to your departure 3% of the yacht fee is going to be retained.
- 60-10 days prior to your departure 50% of the yacht fee is going to be retained.
- 10 days prior to your departure 100% of the yacht fee is retained.
On the other hand if we are not able to have the yacht ready for you on time, due to some unforeseen factors, for example, total loss of the boat, we are obliged to contact you explaining the situation and make an agreement, either to return the whole amount of the fee to you or to find another similar yacht to do the charter.
