The rental period of the sailing yacht is on the first day of the rental at 5 p.m. (or earlier if the lessor specifies). On the day before departure, arrival at the home port is no later than 5:00 PM and the transfer will, depending on the flight schedule, on the day of departure. You can of course stay on the yacht until Saturday morning 9:00 o’clock. The yacht then has to be clean and empty as you received it. This way our cleaning team can start immediately.
On the spot
Check the sailing yacht before you leave. If you notice any imperfections or encounter problems during the trip, always immediately notify the flotilla guide of B&B Yachting.
They will do everything they can to resolve matters quickly and properly. If they unexpectedly fail to satisfy you, have a report drawn up. It is not possible to make a claim afterwards without written submission. Keep in mind that when you are outside of the home base, repair and supply of parts can take some time. If there is a serious defect in the rented sailing yacht, no complaint is possible if this defect is resolved within 36 hours after reporting.
The hirer must have sufficient (technical) experience to guarantee the safety of the entire crew. The hirer must provide the entire crew with proper information about the possible dangers on board such as operating the anchor, running engine, changing gas bottles, etc.
The renter must have sufficient sailing experience to participate in a flotilla. The flotilla guide provides information about the sailing area and offers – if necessary – help with sailing and mooring. The information provided by the flotilla guide never relieves the renter of his own responsibility. The tenant remains primarily responsible for his decisions.
By renting a sailing yacht, the tenant declares to have sufficient (sailing) experience for the rented boat. If it is found on site that a tenant does not have sufficient sailing experience, the lessor has the right to send a skipper for one or more days. The costs of this will be charged to the tenant.
If you sail bareboat you must have sufficient experience to be able to sail a ship fully independently at sea, to be able to moor, anchor and navigate on your own and you must have sufficient technical knowledge to be able to solve any minor technical problems. The tenant receives the sailing yacht after an extensive technical briefing. The tenant then sets off independently. All sailing yachts of B&B Yachting have sea charts, the “Turkish Waterpilot” and a Dutch-language board book from “B&B Yachting”. In this board book you will find, in addition to general and technical information about the sailing yacht, a lot of information about the bays and places in the sailing area around the home port of Göcek.
The person who books a trip is jointly and severally liable for (also) all others he registers.

This provision does not only concern a mental or physical disability, but also other qualities that may be important for the performance of the trip for the traveler himself or for the group.
The tenant is obliged to know where the safety equipment is on board; life jackets, lifelines, fire extinguisher, first aid, flares, life raft etc.
The tenant is liable for damage and / or loss of the boat and inventory during the rental period insofar as this damage is not the responsibility of the lessor, such as wear and tear. You are obliged to report any damage and / or loss immediately.
The customer is fully liable for the consequential damage caused by him, the indirect damage, as a result of which the boat cannot be rented for the next two weeks. The tenant is responsible for the lost rental income over 2 weeks from B&B Yachting or any landlord.
Damage and / or loss will be deducted from the deposit
If the skipper does not have a boating license I and II or ICC, but another ‘boating license’, he may rent the boat at his own risk. Any fines and whether it is not allowed to sail out or on by the authorities are at their own expense.
It is not allowed to bring pets on board.
The boat may only be used in the area of which the sea charts are present on board. Competition sailing and sailing in the dark are not allowed.
If one or more days cannot be sailed due to weather conditions, the tenant is not entitled to a refund. Any expenses incurred are at your own risk.
If the tenant cannot make the trip (completely) due to the lack of any (valid) travel document, all resulting costs, damage and consequences will be borne by the tenant.

The remaining 50% must be paid no later than 6 weeks before departure. If a trip is booked within 6 weeks before departure, you are obliged to pay the entire travel sum within 5 days or at least before departure. If payment is not made within the set terms, you will, if you have not made payment even after the first reminder, owe the statutory interest as well as any extrajudicial collection costs to be incurred.

We reserve the right, in case the tourist travel market will be seriously affected by a possible war or terrorist threat, epidemics or for economic reasons, to cancel the booked trips, whereby the paid travel sum will be reimbursed in the form of a voucher, which, if desired, will be fully refunded after one year. If it is decided to reschedule the trip in consultation and the original payments are paid according to the first invoice, so the dates on which these agreements are based. Prices will remain the same the next year for holders of a voucher. Prices for the added extras will remain in effect, this also applies in the case of a one-way.

• up to 12 weeks before departure 50% of the travel sum

B&B Yachting does not accept any liability for loss, theft or damage occurring during the rental period. The tenant can reduce (only in case of flotilla) the excess of 2000 euros to a maximum of 200 euros by paying an amount of 100 euros at the start of the rental period for the first week and 50 euros for the subsequent weeks.
Damage, loss or theft of the dinghy and possibly with rented outboard engine, refueling diesel in the water tank or refueling water in the diesel tank are not covered by the deductible. The resulting costs are entirely at the expense of the tenant.
