SEA SPRAY YACHT CHARTERS LTD (“SeaSpray”)


 STANDARD BAREBOAT CHARTER CONDITIONS


1. CONDITIONS OF PAYMENT


1.1. The Owner will let the Yacht and the Charterer will charter the Yacht for the Agreed Charter Period in return for an agreed Charter Fee. The Charterer will be over 25 years of age. A non-refundable Booking Deposit equal to 20%  of the Charter Fee  must be paid to Sea Spray Yacht Charters Ltd (“SeaSpray”) by the Charterer in order to make any booking. The balance of the Charter Fee (together with any further amounts including in respect of racing insurance, where appropriate) must be paid to SeaSpray by the Charterer before not less than 28 days before the start of the Agreed Charter Period (the “Due Date”).
1.2. In the event of the Charterer failing to pay the balance of the Charter Fee to SeaSpray by the Due Date, the non-refundable Booking Deposit shall become the property of SeaSpray and either:
(a)  if clear notice in writing from the Charterer of his cancellation of the charter has been received by SeaSpray more than one calendar month before the start of the Agreed Charter Period, then the Charterer will not have to pay the balance of the Charter Fee and SeaSpray, in its sole discretion, may count 50% of the Booking Deposit towards an alternative charter booking that is mutually agreeable to SeaSpray and the Charterer; or
(b)  if clear notice in writing from the Charterer of his cancellation of the charter has not been received by SeaSpray more than one calendar month before the start of the Agreed Charter Period, then the Charterer will have to pay the full balance of the Charter Fee, but shall be entitled to find a replacement Charterer who is acceptable to SeaSpray acting as Booking Agent for the Owner.
1.3. The Charterer therefore must have appropriate travel and other insurance cover, which includes for any cancellation payment.
1.4. The full amount of the Security Deposit must be paid to SeaSpray by the Charterer not less than two weeks before the start of the Agreed Charter Period.

2. DELIVERY OF THE YACHT
2.1. At the start of the Agreed Charter Period the Charterer will have the opportunity to inspect the Yacht and upon acceptance then the Yacht shall be deemed to be in good order and fully in compliance with its description.
2.2. The Owner has the right to accompany the Charterer for trials prior to handover and, if not satisfied of the ability of the Charterer and his crew to handle the Yacht safely, may terminate this agreement (in terms of section 2.3); or restrict the Permitted Cruising Area; or allow the charter to proceed as a Skippered Charter (in which event the Charterer shall be responsible for the cost of hiring a suitably qualified skipper).
2.3. The Owner reserves the right to refuse to hand over the Yacht to anyone who, in their opinion, is not suitable to take charge. No reason need be given. In this event all sums paid will be refunded to the Charterer who will have no further claim against either the Owner or SeaSpray.
2.4. If the Charterer is not available to accept the yacht at, or within 4 hours of, the agreed time and place, any subsequent boarding shall be at the convenience of the Owner, who reserves the right to charge for any additional costs incurred. Under these circumstances, no pro-rata refund for lost charter time will be considered.
2.5. The yacht will not in any circumstances be handed over to the Charterer, until the Owner has confirmation from SeaSpray that the full amount of the Charter Fee (together with any further amounts including in respect of racing insurance where appropriate) and the full amount of the Security Deposit have been received by SeaSpray.

3. OBLIGATIONS OF THE OWNER
3.1. The Owner will use his best endeavours to deliver the Yacht to the Charterer at the start of the period of charter in full commission, in good condition and with all the gear and equipment complying with MCA regulations in force at the time for the specified cruising limits of the Yacht. The Owner does not warrant that items of ancillary mechanical or electrical equipment, whether advertised in the description of the yacht or not will be in working order at all times. 
3.2. The Owner will deliver the Yacht to the Charterer at the agreed time and place. If the Owner becomes aware that for any reason he will not be able to deliver the Yacht in time for the start of the Agreed Charter Period, he will use his best endeavours to promptly notify the Charterer and SeaSpray of the likely extent of any such delay.
3.3 If for any reason the Owner is unable to deliver the Yacht in time, a refund of the Charter Fee will be made to the Charterer pro-rata for each complete 12 hour period of such delay.
3.4 If such delay exceeds 48 hours or if the Owner is unable to deliver the Yacht at all, the Charterer shall have the right to terminate the agreement and receive a return of the Charter Fee and Security Deposit. In the event of a termination of the agreement by whichever party resulting from delay or non-delivery of the Yacht there will be no further liability due from the Charterer to the Owner or SeaSpray; nor from the Owner or SeaSpray to the Charterer. However in such circumstances both the Owner and SeaSpray would use their best endeavours to identify and offer to the Charterer, a mutually satisfactory alternative charter yacht, at a comparable cost to the Charterer and that the Owner agrees to contribute if necessary to a maximum of 10% of the original Charter Fee to any higher Charter Fee charged in such circumstances, but neither the Owner nor SeaSpray accept any further liability to compensate the Charterer.
