Method of Payment

 

The USER may pay via a bank transfer to the account whose information is given to the USER at the time of payment or in accordance with payment methods displayed on the screen at all times.

 

Security Deposit

 

At the time the documents are signed and the vessel is delivered, the CUSTOMER must pay a security deposit to guarantee any breakdowns, breakages, ruptures, tears, cracks or damages as well as operating conditions such as maintenance and cleanliness of the vessel and possible delay in return.

 

The security deposit can be settled by credit card or cash at the departure port.

 

The security deposit will be returned after the vessel is checked if it is considered to be in good conditions.

 

If the vessel is a gulet, a security deposit will not be necessary.

 

Delivery

 

Prior to delivery, the CUSTOMER has the right to inspect the vessel with a representative from the base in order to check to see if the vessel and its equipment are in perfect operating conditions. Once the vessel is delivered and the trip has started, the CUSTOMER accepts that the vessel is in perfect operating conditions.



The vessel is delivered to the CUSTOMER with full water, fuel, battery and crankcase oil and must be returned full. An inventory of the equipment on the vessel will be signed.

 

The vessel will be delivered to the lessee or CUSTOMER in the port indicated in the particular conditions provided.

 

Any delay in delivering the vessel due to causes attributable to the CUSTOMER will not entail an extension of the rental period.

 

If weather conditions delay the departure, no price reduction will be granted nor will the contract duration be extended.

 

Similar Vessel

 

The vessel is chartered by category. The base may provide the CUSTOMER with a vessel similar to the one in the contract if, due to a prior accident or breakdown, the vessel in the contract is not in conditions for sailing.

 

Return

 

A late return will incur a charge of double the daily rate for each day of delay as well as any possible penalties TOP LUXURY YACHT may have to fulfil as a result of a delay in a posterior delivery of the vessel. Weather conditions do not justify a late return.

 

The vessel must be returned at the same port of delivery and within the time frame indicated except when the particular conditions indicate otherwise.

 

At the time of return, the vessel will be checked in order to check the equipment and ensure the absence of breakdowns and breakages, ruptures, tears or cracks. Maintenance and cleanliness conditions will be checked as well as the fuel and water tanks to make sure they are full. Any expenses incurred to return the vessel and its equipment to the state they were in upon delivery will be deducted from the security deposit, as required.

 

Right of Withdrawal

 

The service cancellation fees are the following:

 

  1. Cancelations 60 days before start of service: penalty between 30% and 50%
  2. Cancellations between 60 and 30 days before the start of service: penalty 50%

Right of Termination

 

Non-compliance with payment deadlines will terminate the contract. TOP LUXURY YACHT must notify the CUSTOMER of said termination in writing and the amounts paid will remain in the custody of TOP LUXURY YACHT.

 

Reckless use of the vessel, infringement of the terms of use outlined in the General Terms of Contract and the infringement of regulations in vigour will give reason to automatically terminate the contract.

 

Norms of Use

 

The CUSTOMER shall use the vessel in accordance with legislation in vigour and take sole responsibility for possible infringements that may occur during the use of the vessel.

 

The CUSTOMER must provide the documents and licences the base requires to render the service. If the base considers the CUSTOMER to be lacking in competence as skipper, the base will hire a skipper to start the trip. The expenses incurred will be assumed by the CUSTOMER in accordance with the rates in vigour.

 

The area of navigation allowed will be specified in the Particular Conditions, as long as the license permits. The USER may not navigate in areas other than the ones indicated without a written authorisation from the base.
Control of the vessel may not be given to anyone other than the person designated in the contract.

 

The CUSTOMER must use the vessel for individual recreational use with the people indicated in the particular conditions and must not engage in commercial or competitive activities or in any way, shape or form sublease the vessel.

 

It is prohibited to embark a number of people onto the vessel that is superior to its capacity.

 

Additional costs are not included such as food, fuel and water refills, berths outside the port base and other extra services not requested at the time the service was contracted such as skipper, chef, attendant, assistant, automatic pilot, Spinaker or Blister.

The prices of onboard consumption are set by each vessel (gulet) and TOP LUXURY YACHT has no responsibility or competence in this aspect. The CUSTOMER is advised to request the price list and consult it at the start of the trip before consuming and to be aware of the costs of berths, anchors, port taxes, local taxes and entries to national parks. TOP LUXURY YACHT is not responsible for incidents that may arise to that respect.

 

The CUSTOMER must inform TOP LUXURY YACHT immediately of any accidents or damages or losses the vessel has suffered or may suffer.

 

The lessor is exonerated from responsibility of damages the lessee may cause to third persons or objects as a result of using the rental vessel.

 

The CUSTOMER will define the trajectory for the trip along with the skipper or the base manager. The trajectory defined may be subject to modifications due to justifiable weather causes. In the event of such, and due to these reasons, the CUSTOMER does not need to give prior notification or consent and may not file complaints for the change in trajectory.

 

Upon making the payment, the CUSTOMER accepts with no limitations each and every one of the present Terms of Use and understands that non-compliance with such may generate the obligation to compensate any possible damages or losses as well as the cancellation of the contract by TOP LUXURY YACHT without the right to demand the amounts paid be returned.

 

Complaints

 

Complaints must be filed during the charter or at the time the vessel is delivered in writing with the document the base provides for said purpose. The complaint must be signed by the CUSTOMER and the base manager and a copy must be sent with a certified receipt to TOP LUXURY YACHT (Torroella de Montgrí, Calle Francesc Macià, 11, 17257 - Girona) within a maximum of 4 days after the end of the trip.

 

In the event of a gulet charter, the CUSTOMER has been forewarned that, given the special characteristics of this vessel, under no circumstances may a complaint be filed for losses caused by the presence of leaks.

 

Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

 

To resolve disputes over interpretation or jurisdiction, said disputes will be expressly subject to the jurisdiction and competence of marine authorities and, where relevant, the courts of La Bisbal (Spain).

 

The present contract is subject to Spanish Law.
