Optional Extras - Yacht Damage Waiver and Security Deposits

Yacht Damage Waiver & Security deposits

Please note that for all sailing holidays featured, you will be required to provide cover against accidental damage or loss to the vessel and ancillary equipment and either pay a Security Deposit at the base or purchase Yacht Damage Waiver as further detailed below.

In the event you or your party cause damage or loss to the vessel (howsoever caused) or to property belonging to a third party and you have opted to take the Security Deposit option you will be liable for the full extent of the loss suffered and our right to claim against you will not be limited or waived by the payment of the Security Deposit.

If you or your party cause damage or loss to the vessel, any ancillary equipment or to property belonging to a third party and such damage or loss is caused as a result of your gross negligence or reckless conduct you will be liable for the full extent of the loss suffered and our right to claim against you will not be limited or waived in any way by the payment of the Security Deposit or purchase of Yacht Damage Waiver. Acts that will be considered as gross negligence or reckless conduct will include, without limitation, sailing outside of defined sailing areas and/or hours, sailing the vessel under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, not having sufficient crew in charge of the vessel at all times, not being in control of the vessel.

During the booking process you will be provided with the option of either purchasing Yacht Damage Waiver or paying a Security Deposit. You will not be able to proceed with your booking unless you agree to one of the options and by asking us to confirm your booking you are agreeing to comply with the content of this section and make any required payment.

 

Your refundable excess deposit will be left in equivalent currency at the base to cover the excess for any damage incurred to the yacht, or damage to or loss of ancillary equipment. If damage occurs to a value lower than your refundable excess, you will be refunded your deposit less the cost of repair. If the damage incurred exceeds your refundable excess, your deposit will not be refunded and you will not be required to pay any additional costs :

All charterers are required to sign our Yacht Damage Waiver at the base prior to departure. Feel free to preview it in advance; however, as we require you to sign this in person at the base, there is no need to send it to us ahead of time. Thank you.


Please note: Customers who have acquired their own Yacht Damage Waiver via a third party will be required to pay the excess amounts listed under Option 2 upon arrival at the base.

 

Racing

Where you are racing the yacht in an organised regatta or event, whether it is with Sunsail or any other organisation, a refundable Security Deposit will be taken at the base. This will work in exactly the same way as Option 2 above and will be refunded in full should no damage or loss be incurred. It is not an option to cover the yacht and ancilliary equipment under the Yacht Damage Waiver (Option 1) while the yacht is under racing rules. If you wish to cover the boat under the Yacht Damage Waiver at all other times during your charter, including getting to and from the race, then you can do so under the Yacht Damage Waiver scheme. This will limit your liability to 750 € during this period with any damage or loss occurring during the race being taken out of the Security Deposit.
