Where the services are provided by air or sea carriers our liability is limited in line with the appropriate international convention.
We reserve the right in our absolute discretion to terminate without further notice the yacht charter vacation arrangements of any client who refuses to comply with the instructions or orders of the company staff, agent or other responsible person whose behavior in their opinions is likely to cause distress, damage, danger or annoyance to other customers, staff, any third party or to property. Upon such termination our responsibility for your vacation ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you. Any client who is denied boarding on the outbound/inbound flight on the decision of the airline staff or aircraft captain shall be deemed to have given notice of cancellation on his/her booking at that moment, and cancellation charges will apply in accordance with cancellation charges above.

Bareboat Yacht Charters

Please refer to the specific charter operator contract and conditions for your charter. You will normally be granted free use of the bareboat yacht after you have signed the Take-Over form with the charter operator. You have the right to inspect the bareboat yacht, her gear and inventory and to ensure that all items are present and in good working condition. On signing the Take-Over form you accept the yacht and thereafter it is your full responsibility, and you will have no right to claim for any loss of time or expense caused by any accident or breakdown or failure of any part of the bareboat yacht. However, such acceptance does not imply that you assume responsibility for any failure, damage, loss or expense due to normal wear and tear, or defects which are agreed and noted on the Take-Over Form.
If you return the bareboat yacht late at the end of a charter, you will be liable to pay a penalty charge, and you will be liable for all recovery costs. We will not provide alternative return flights.
The cruising area from each base may be restricted. The base manager will inform you of any restrictions, and may further confine the cruising area of the bareboat yacht or place a competent crew on board if considered necessary for the safety of the yacht and its occupants. A daily charge will be made for the crew member. No pets are permitted on board unless otherwise stipulated.

Laws of the country where you or your charter yacht is located

No-one in your party should commit an act contrary to the laws of the country. If any such act is committed, the agreement between us will automatically terminate, but without prejudice to our rights and those of the owner of the charter yacht. You and/or your party will carry full responsibility and answer to the appropriate Authorities.

Travel Insurance

It is strongly suggested that all members of your party have comprehensive travel insurance.

Yacht Charter Complaint Procedure

We aim to provide you with the best yacht charter vacation holiday possible, but if a problem occurs you must report it to www.luxury-charter-yacht.com yacht charter consultant as soon as possible, or to the charter operator manager or captain who will try to resolve it on the spot. If you fail to follow this simple procedure www.luxury-charter-yacht.com and LDNB GLOBAL Ltd. and/or the charter operator will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were on your yacht charter vacation and this may affect your rights under this contract.
