Should any changes in applicable tax legislation take place after booking, that result in a change of VAT and hence of the total amount(s) due, then the difference will be credited or debited accordingly to the Charterer.

Security Deposit:

Before embarkation, Charterer will deliver at Charter Base a Security Deposit of such amount as listed on pricelist and confirmed by offer statement. Cash payment and credit cards (VISA or MasterCard) are accepted. The Security Deposit is non-commissionable and applicable per insured event (damage or loss).

Should an incident covered by the Security Deposit occur during the charter, the Charterer must replenish the Security Deposit to the initial amount to continue the charter, having sufficient coverage for any other incident. In any other case, Stakeholder and / or Owner retain the right to treat the charter agreement as having been breached by Charterer and end the charter.

At the end of charter, such deposit shall be refunded to Charterer, without interest, if not required to be used for any liability, indebtedness, loss, or damage caused because of any breach of booking conditions or because of any damage or loss caused to the yacht or its contents, by the charter clients and skipper.

If required to be used for an amount of liability, indebtedness, damage or loss which is less than the Security Deposit, Charterer shall be refunded, as relevant, part of the Security Deposit as soon as reasonably possible after the damage has been repaired or the repair costs have been ascertained or the liability, indebtedness or loss has been settled or ascertained.

In the event of any disagreement over liability, damage or loss, Sail Your Myth shall retain the relevant Security Deposit paid until the dispute is resolved. Retention of the security deposit will not in any way limit or prejudice any claim over and above the sum of the security deposit paid, where the loss or damage was in excess of the security deposit and was either caused by or pertains to illegal actions, or fraudulent behavior, or gross negligence or reckless conduct of Charterer or where under any circumstances the insured under the yacht’s insurance policy will not receive full compensation of loss or damage suffered, due to Charterer’s actions or omissions. The Charterer shall then remain liable for the balance of any such losses or damages incurred over and above the sum of the security deposit by Charterer.

For Lagoon 42 & Lagoon 450: 400€ non-refundable payable in cash upon arrival plus 2000€ refundable.

Responsibility

  • Yacht’s specification and equipment may vary from those presented on the internet or promotional material, exact yacht & equipment details are valid only as listed/described in the specific offer statement provided by Sail Your Myth in response to each inquiry. Information, photos, and videos on Sail Your Myth webpages are not binding and do not constitute a contractual document, it is only indicative of the type and model of the yachts offered. They are not actual pictures or videos of the vessels offered by the company (unless expressly stated therein).
  • Described services and facilities are indicative. They may vary depending on actual conditions (for example the period, base, or yacht chartered).
  • Only documentation (forms/contracts/checklists) issued by Sail Your Myth can be accounted for as official proof of the conditions of each charter and guest comments and evaluations on such forms are to be accounted for as testimony of the services provided. Any other documents/forms aside from those issued by Sail Your Myth (i.e. for Inventory, Delivery, Redelivery, etc.) will be disregarded.
  • By requesting Charter Party to be issued by Sail Your Myth, Charterer and Agents acknowledge having read, understood, and agreed to the terms and conditions of booking and of Charter Party.
  • By taking delivery of the yacht, even if effected and signed by Skipper, Charterer confirms acceptance without modification of all Charter Party Terms & Conditions and assumes full responsibility pursuant to those terms.

  • Sail Your Myth is not responsible for any typing errors that may occur.

Sailing Qualifications

Minimum requirements involve that,

  • one crew member presents the Port Authority with an appropriate sailing certificate, proving his competence as Skipper.
  • Subject to applicable Greek legislation, qualifications are to be approved by the local Port Authority on the day of departure. The charterer is at all times liable for the suitability of his qualification and certification. Day Skipper Certificates may be rejected by the Port Authority and Charterers are therefore advised to ensure they have an International Certificate of Competence (ICC). Typically, any holder of the “Day Skipper” certificate can obtain their ICC from the yachting association that issued their Day Skipper certificate and the process usually requires nothing more than a simple application. Please contact your yachting association in time for your trip (we suggest that you allow at least 20 days for the certificate to be issued). Also, any other certificates bearing daylight use limitations are rejected by Greek port authorities if the charter duration exceeds 24 hours. Other causes of license rejection may include navigation limited to less than 20nm.
  • Broker, Stakeholder, and Owner shall not be responsible if skipper certification is rejected by Port Authority, and Sail Your Myth reserves the right to require that charterers hire a professional skipper if their sailing skills and qualifications are deemed insufficient.
