The following sets out the terms and conditions under which the “Wave Chieftain” may be chartered. This document forms an agreement between the vessels owner and the
club or individual hiring the vessel (The Charterer)
2. THE VESSEL
The owner will make available the vessel “Wave Chieftain”, licensed, insured and carrying regulation safety equipment as set out by the MCA operating Code of Practise.
Operating with a licensed skipper and a qualified crew member when appropriate.
To secure a booking we will require a deposit of £150, the balance of which is then due on completion of the charter, for multiple charter the payment is collected at the
end of each day and as such requires a larger deposit, this can be agreed with the skipper.
4. NUMBER OF DIVERS
The Wave Chieftain is licensed to carry twelve passengers and two crew, the Charterer is responsible to fill these spaces accordingly, if in the event spaces become unfilled
the full amount is still payable, regardless of how many people are onboard
If the vessels owner (Skipper) cancels the charter due to adverse weather, mechanical failure, illness or the like the full deposit is returned. If deteriorating weather forces
an early return to port, only that portion of the trip spent at sea is chargeable. A decision to return to port is the skippers and his alone. A return to port at the insistence of the
anglers qualifies as a complete trip and the full charter fee is then payable.
If the Charterer cancels the trip within four weeks then the deposit is forfeited, if such cancellation is within two weeks the entire fee is payable. These conditions
will only apply if the owner (Skipper) is unable to secure an alternative charter on the date in question. Please remember we are operating a business and this is our
livelihood and as such we need to protect it in all events but in the same instance operate a fare charter for our customers.
