Once you have discussed with us the various types of yacht, locations and terms under which the yachts operate, we will be ready to firm-up your booking. This occurs in stages and is quick and relatively painless (except for the transfer of funds of course!). We will prepare and send you a Charter Agreement detailing the yacht, your chosen dates, location, cruising area and cost. Upon signing this Agreement the first payment, normally 50%, is due to the account shown on the Agreement. The Agreements are then sent by us to the Owners for their countersignature and a completed copy is returned to you for your retention. We will send you a detailed questionnaire requesting information on your travel arrangements, guest list, likes and dislikes, special requirements, etc. This information will be discussed with you in some detail to ensure we gather as much information as possible. This is then sent to the Captain so that he can pre-book any berths, order the right provisions and arrange the chef and crew to prepare that special birthday treat or other such celebration. The balance is normally due one month prior to embarkation in the form of bank transfer or certified Bank check. In addition to the balance any extras such as provisioning and advance payment of 4hrs fuel per day for the number of charter days must be completed at the time of embarkation, Any differences will be settled at the end of the charter.
