Security Deposits & Damage Waiver
We appreciate that chartering a yacht is a big financial commitment and can cause worry over damage repair costs to the yacht and/or other vessels in the event of a collision.
Therefore, we are pleased to offer our customers two options when chartering yachts from us which will give peace of mind:
Pay a daily fee in advance which will reduce the deposit required when chartering from us. The daily fee is £45/day for any sized yacht in our fleet. This will reduce your security deposit from £3,000 to £1,500. If any damage is caused during your charter, your losses are capped at a maximum of £1,500.
There are various damage waiver insurance policies commercially available to cover your £1,500 deposit however, such as policies from Topsail Insurance.
Pay no daily fee in advance but pay the standard charter deposit of £3,000. If any damage is caused during your charter, your losses are capped at a maximum of £3,000.
There are various damage waiver insurance policies commercially available to cover your £3,000 deposit however, such as policies from Topsail Insurance.
