A charter is subject to the Charterer signing and accepting the full Terms and Conditions (available on request), a refundable £1000 damage deposit, and providing two forms of identification including a utility bill or equivalent which shows a current full-time UK address.

Operation of “Quay Explorer” is limited to a line not west of Falmouth Marina, and not east of Kingswear. During the Charter Period, the Charterer is responsible for the safety and security of Quay Explorer at all times and will moor the vessel on a recognized deep water commercial visitor’s mooring or within a marina.

The vessel will commence the charter with a full fuel tank. All fuel usage is the responsibility of the Charterer; Yacht Haven Quay will refuel at the end of the charter and this will be charged at current published prices.
