The following booking terms and conditions ("Terms") set out the rights and obligations of yourself as the charterer ("Charterer") and us Bookbareboat.

After the submission of the Option Request by the Charterer, the Option Period may be amended by Bookbareboat at its sole discretion and without any reasonable ground for the amendment.

The Option Request does not confirm and guarantee the Yacht Charter. The Option automatically lapses at the end of the Option Period, unless it is converted to a reservation upon confirmation by the Charterer's signature of the contract ("Yacht Charter Contract") to be executed with the operator in question ("Operator") and the payment of the deposit pertaining to the Yacht Charter

In order to effect the Booking Request, the deposit amount shall be effected. For this purpose, Booking Request shall direct the Charterer to the secure online payment page for effecting the deposit via credit card. In paying the deposit the Charterer is deemed to have read and accepted the Terms which form the contract between the Charterer and Bookbareboat, and the terms and conditions of the Yacht Charter Contract.

So it is recommended to the Charterer that before the receipt of the Booking Confirmation, the flights shall not be booked nor any travel arrangements shall be made in a finalized manner.

The Yacht Charter Contract shall be received with the Booking Confirmation to sign. If Booking Request is declined, the deposit received shall be paid back in full.

In any case claims with respect to discrepancies shall be forwarded within a period of 2 days as of Charterer's receipt of the Confirmation Documents. The failure by the Charterer to submit its claims arising therefrom shall be deemed as Confirmation Documents' compliance with the Booking Request.

After the Booking Request is confirmed, the signed Yacht Charter Contract shall be dispatched for the attention of Bookbareboat immediately. The signed Yacht Charter Contract shall be dispatched as hard copy. Dispatch of the copy of the same via fax or the scanned version shall be accepted provided that the signed hard copy shall follow the referred faxed or scanned version.

Yacht Details

Specifications, measurements, product data and pictures are for generalized informational purposes only. The discrepancies are possible between the shown and the Yacht. All details contained herein neither represent or warrant the full inventory of the Yacht and are presented as an overview list.

Yacht Availability

All Operators reserve the right to replace the Yacht -should the Yacht booked become unobtainable- with a similar sized yacht. At the sole discretion of the Operators, a full refund of all monies may be paid for the original yacht.


For bareboat yacht charter at least one member of the party shall produce evidence as to their competence to skipper the yacht. Evidence of competence shall be produced to Bookbareboat as soon as possible after Booking Confirmation received. Copies should also be available on embarkation. Should this not be forthcoming or should the Operator feel the safety of the Yacht is in question; the Operator reserves the right to allocate a skipper to the yacht and charge as per our price list.


Charter price includes in minimum the rent of a yacht with its indicated equipment for that specific period of time. Prices are exclusive of fuel, skipper service, food, and any other costs arise during the Yacht Charter unless stated otherwise. Stated compulsory extras are to be paid with the purchase of the indicated Yacht Charter and stated security deposit is to be paid at base on embarkation to cover loss or damage to the Yacht and/or its equipment. Security deposit shall be refunded in full (providing no damage) on the return of the Yacht. Insurance might be offered in place of a refundable deposit depending to the Operator.

All prices shown are in Euro currency and payments are accepted in Euro currency unless otherwise is mutually agreed to. With the credit card payments, the exchange rate costs might arise. Hence, the Charterer, upon reading this provision acknowledges the exchange rate costs and is aware of the fact that different amounts arising therefrom may be displayed in its credit card abstract.


Bookbareboat collects the cruise price pertaining to the Yacht ("Cruise Price") on behalf of the Operator in question. In some cases, Bookbareboat can make the necessary amendments so that direct payments are made to the Operator. Total cruise price includes charter price pertaining to the Yacht ("Charter Price") and one way fee if applicable. Total Cruise Price of special offers including last minute sailing and one way sailing offers is paid in the time booking. For the bookings over 6 weeks prior to the commencement of the Yacht Charter, 40% of the total cruise price is paid in the time booking, and the rest, 60% of the total cruise price, is due to the six weeks prior to the commencement of the Yacht Charter. Payment shall be received before the dead-lines indicated. The booking shall automatically lapse if payment is not received. Total price of compulsory and optional extras if applicable is due to the commencement date of the Yacht Charter and is paid to the Operator at base before departure.

Methods of Payments

Credit card, wire money transfer and mail orders are accepted methods of payments. Booking Request offers only credit card payment method via secure online payment system. If the Charterer wishes not to use the online payment system, the option request choice shall be used and the Charterer shall contact Bookbareboat promptly to advise the method of payment the Charterer would like.


Any changes to the chosen optional extras can be done at the member page of the Charterer without any charge. However changes after 2 weeks prior to the commencement date of the Yacht Charter shall not be acceptable unless mutually agreed with Operator. Any changes to the booking after confirmation shall qualify for a 50 Euro charge to cover the administration expenses and any other price changes might be applicable based on change.

The Charterer hereby acknowledges that a change may be made among the yachts of the same Operator if deemed appropriate. In other words, after the booking of a certain yacht, the Charterer reserves the right to ask for the booking of another instead of the already booked yacht belonging to the same Operator as the latter.

In case of a change with a yacht belonging to another Operator, the referred change shall be construed as a cancellation by the Charterer, thus triggering the procedures for cancellation by the Charterer set out in the Yacht Charter Contract.

Changes for special offers are not applicable.


Any relevant regulation prescribed under the Yacht Charter Contract shall be applied in case of a cancellation by the Charterer.


The boarding to the Yacht shall be made at a destination referred to in the voucher as the contact address unless otherwise informed by the Operator.

Except when advised separately the Charterer is responsible for making its own way to the boarding destination.

Passports and Visas

The Charterer is responsible for ensuring that all necessary documentation including passports and visas are duly attained in a legally conforming manner for the Yacht Charter. All passengers shall have a valid passport and visa for international travel.


The majority of charters shall commence at 17.00, ending at 09.00. Exact start and finish times shall be shown on the Yacht Charter Contract below and in the voucher. It is requested from the Charterer that the time details are understood and adhered to. If the Charterer returns the Yacht late at the end of a Yacht Charter, penalty charge shall be requested and the Charterer shall be liable for all recovery costs.

Applicable Law and Jurisdiction

This Agreement shall be subject to Turkish Law and all any dispute arising from or in connection to this Agreement shall be settled by the courts and enforcement offices of Ýzmir.

The Yacht Charter Contract

Bookings on Yachts are accepted subject to the standard terms of the company with whom the Charterer books the Yacht Charter. Therefore the Yacht Charter Contract varies based on the Operator with whom the Charterer books the Yacht Charter and it is required from the Charterer that the Yacht Charter Contract is read and fully understood before the completion of the booking process. A copy of the Yacht Charter Contract shall be sent to the Charterer and it is requested from the Charterer that signed copy of it is returned immediately. It should be noted that all contracts list Bookbareboat as an intermediary only and any dispute shall be between the Charterer and the Operator without any effect on Bookbareboat.
