Yacht Damage Waiver & Security DepositsRopesail clients have two options to cover themselves for accidental damage or loss. Please note neither the Yacht Damage Waiver nor the Security Deposit cover any acts of gross negligence, such as damage occurred whilst sailing outside the defined sailing area and hours, sailing under the influence of alcohol or drugs, running aground or taking the yacht single handed.
The Yacht Damage Waiver is dependent on the size of yacht which you are chartering.
Option 1: Yacht Damage WaiverAll bookings will automatically be priced to include the Yacht Damage Waiver option at the point of sale and on the booking confirmation. This payment is required to cover the possibility of damage to the yacht, or damage to or loss of ancillary equipment or damage caused by a third party. If damage occurs to a value lower than the excess you will be refunded the amount less the cost of repair. If the damage incurred exceeds the excess, the payment will not be refunded and you will be required to pay any additional costs upon disembarkation.
Option 2: Security Deposit
This is a refundable payment to be paid before your embark and you will be liable for damage or loss incurred to the yacht and its ancillary equipment. If damage occurs to the value lower than the security deposit you will be refunded your payment less the cost of repair. If the damage incurred exceeds the security deposit value, your payment will not be refunded and you will be required to pay any additional costs.
