Your safety is our utmost priority

We respect all international Covid-19 regulations and would never allow ourselves to put our clients or our local yacht charter partners at risk. We understand the insecurities of our customers regarding the pandemic and will do our very best to eliminate their worries. 

Your health when renting a boat with us

The hygiene standards and recommendations prescribed by the local authorities to the boat operators are very high and strictly controlled. In constant contact with our boat partners at the marine bases worldwide we can confirm that these restrictions are meticulously implemented.

Caution! As a skipper or charterer, you are responsible for your own and your crew’s safety in the first place. Everyone on board must be vaccinated, recovered and/or tested.

Official Covid-19 cancellation reasons

  • The borders of your home country are closed and you are not allowed to leave the country.
  • The country where your sailing trip is taking place has an official travel ban and you are not allowed to enter it

Flexible yacht charter rescheduling or refunds

In case of closed borders, the booked yacht charter must either be rebooked free of charge for another period within 18 months or 100% refunded. Each boat provider decides if he will issue a voucher or refund the full charter amount to the customer. As an agent, we will support you in this situation!

Caution! In case of a Covid_19  illness among the crew members, the trip can not be canceled or rebooked. To get a 100% refund of your booking in this case, we strongly recommend booking our travel insurance beforehand.
