It covers more than just what you can and cannot do on the yacht; for instance, it defines our cancellation terms, refunds and other things that can occur before you even start your holiday. So please take the time to read the Agreement carefully or download a sample. Note: This version of our Yacht Charter Agreement is for your reference only; it may not be the latest version.
