We will disclose these additional fees upon your request for a certain vessel and length of time. Captains and crew are to be paid and tipped directly at the end of the charter (Cash or Venmo), $550/8 hrs, $550/6 hrs, $350/ 4 hrs. Tipping is standard and expected. You may bareboat or bring your own captain, so long as their captain resume is sufficient tour standard. All charters must operate between the times 9 am and 7 pm or they will be considered a multi-day charter. For safety of our guests and our vessels, we only allow charters to be underway during daylight ********* 8 Hours - $1795 6 Hours - $1525 4 Hours - $1255 Please inquire for weeklong rates and itineraries As for day trip itineraries, they are very flexible, and thus comes down to how you would like to experience your charter. Most will spend time sailing the bay, then find a restaurant to dinghy-in and enjoy some local cuisine. And then spend the rest of the day, drinking and swimming at a sandbar, sunbathing on the trampoline, or dancing to music in the salon. Some spend more time on land than others, such as explore local beach and park areas, so it really depends on your crew’s preferences and cruising agenda. You may bring any food and drinks that you would like, but we do not recommend glass. If you are interested in Catering or a Captain/Chef we have a few options we can discuss with you. ********** The incredibly comfortable lounge has been designed with expansive panoramic windows that bathe the interior in natural light.

*** You are only paying the reserve deposit through Get My Boat, there will be additional fees prior to your charter. We will disclose these additional fees upon your request for a certain vessel and length of time. *** This Bareboat Charter Agreement made on the date above is between the Owner of the boat and Sail Away LLC in partnership with Sail Away Key West (collectively referred to as “Owner”) and the Charter Client (referred to as “Charterer”) 1. The Owner agrees to rent the Yacht to the Charterer who agrees to take the Yacht for hire for the above charter period. Reservations require a deposit of 50% of the charter fee with the balance due 30 days prior to the charter period. There will be a $50 service charge for any returned checks. All charters must be reserved and paid for in full prior to your arrival. CANCELLATIONS: 2. The Charterer can always reschedule a charter for later in the sailing season (within one year) with no penalty and any funds paid will be applied to the new charter. Cancellations received more than 30 days prior to the start date will receive a full refund less a $350 cancellation fee. If cancellation occurs less than 30 days but more than a week prior to the charter, the Charterer will receive a full refund less a $750 cancellation fee. Charters cancelled within a week of the start date will forfeit all funds. 3. If it is deemed unsafe to go out due to weather on the day of the charter, the Owner may cancel the charter and all monies will be refunded or the Charterer can reschedule for another date during the calendar year. 4. Sail Away reserves the right to cancel or abort the charter if it is deemed that the vessel, the charter guests, or hired crew are at risk of harm due to intoxication, reckless actions, or aggressive behavior (whether verbally or physical) of the guests. 5. We strongly recommend purchasing cancellation/trip insurance in case unforeseen circumstances occur. We offer information on outside trip insurance providers upon request OR the Charterer may purchase cancellation protection from us for an additional 15% of the base charter rate. If purchased, the Charterer can cancel the reservation for any reason giving 48 hours’ notice without penalty and will receive a full refund of all funds paid, including tax and any additional options selected. The 15% cancellation protection fee is not refunded under any circumstances once paid. DAMAGE AND LOSS: 6. The Owner will keep the Yacht fully insured under a standard marine yacht policy with a deductible of $5000. The Charterer agrees to be financially responsible for the cost of any damage to the Yacht, the Dinghy and motor (if included), and all associated equipment, up to the security deposit amount listed above by providing a credit card. The credit card will be placed on hold for this amount, and the hold will be removed after the Yacht is returned provided there is no damage or loss. We offer a damage deposit buy-down option (damage waiver) for $35/day which reduces your liability from $5000 to $1500 for single day trips with a pre-approved Captain or $2500 for multiple day trips or bareboat. If you choose a Captain from our pre-approved list, you will not be liable for any damage caused by the Captain. If any damage or loss occurs, you are responsible for contacting the Owner immediately and providing a detailed report of the incident in writing (including other parties/vessels involved, witnesses, description of damage, etc.) and a police report if requested by the Owner. 7. Although the Charterer will only be liable to the extent of the amount mentioned in Paragraph 5 for normal operation of the Yacht, the Charterer will be liable in excess of this amount if the damage or loss occurs as a result of gross negligence, an intentional act, or a flagrant disregard on your part of rules for the usage and operation of the Yacht noted below. This unlimited liability extends to the loss/damage of the dinghy and/or dinghy motor if included. 8. The Charterer agrees that no repairs will be made without the Owner’s permission. The Owner agrees if the Yacht sustains a mechanical breakdown or is disabled by any cause after delivery that prevents the use of the Yacht, and if the breakdown is not brought about by any act or default of the Charterer, the Owner will make a pro-rate return of the charter fee for the amount of time that the Yacht was unfit for use. The Owner will not be responsible for any other consequential loss or damage. DELIVERY AND RETURN OF THE YACHT: 9. The Owner will deliver the Yacht at the boarding port in proper working order and outfitted/equipped appropriately for a Yacht of her size and type, in clean and good condition and ready for service. It is the Charterer’s responsibility to examine the Yacht and all equipment before departure and bring any issues that were ascertainable by due diligence to the attention of the Owner. No refunds will be granted for issues that are not discussed prior to departure. If it is impossible for the Owner to deliver the Yacht due to causes beyond their control, and If delivery cannot be made within 24 hours of the start of the charter period, then this agreement may be cancelled by the Charterer and all money paid in advance will be returned. If the Charterer is not present or not ready to accept delivery of the Yacht at the specified time and place, for whatever reason, the Owner reserves the right to set the time of delivery within a 24-hour period. 12. The Charterer is responsible for allowing sufficient time for unforeseen contingencies to permit return to the port on time. If you cannot return the Yacht to the time/place stipulated, you agree to pay a pro-rated fee to the Owner for the time that the delivery is delayed plus any losses (including lost charter income) that the Owner may have sustained due to the delay. 13. The Yacht will be delivered to Charterer with fuel, water tanks topped off, and pumped out. The Charterer agrees to return the yacht with full fuel and water and with holding tanks pumped out at their expense or they agree to the option of having us refuel and pump-out at a cost of $50 plus the price of the fuel (TBD) and $5 per holding tank needing pumped, which will be charged to the Charterer’s credit card provided. If a Captain is used for Half Day and Full Day Charters, the flat fee for refueling and pump-out will be $25 for Half Day Charters and $50 for Full Day Charters. 14. The Charterer agrees to surrender the Yacht at or before the expiration date/time of this charter at the release port, free and clear of any debts that may have been incurred by the Charterer. The Charterer agrees to keep the Yacht in good running order and condition, and in substantially the same condition as when they accepted delivery with only reasonable wear and tear as to be expected. 15. The Charterer is responsible for the cleaning fee. Cleaning fees are quoted on page one of this agreement. Your damage deposit also serves as a cleaning deposit. While it is not expected that you do a deep cleansing of the boat inside and out, it must be returned in respectable condition for our cleaning crew: dishes washed, trash gathered, food removed, and dirty linens gathered. Additionally, the use of spray-on sun lotions of any kind is not allowed to be used on the boat as they can stain the gel-coat and fabrics. The Charterer agrees to allow the Owner to deduct a fee of up to $2000 from their security deposit if excessive cleaning is required. Notice will be given by the Owner to the Charterer prior to any charges taking place. AUTHORITY FOR OPERATION OF THE YACHT: 16.

The Charterer will demonstrate this competence by trial sail or otherwise as requested by the Owner prior to the start of the charter. If, after check-out of your skills in the Owner’s opinion, you or your party are deficient in number, training, experience, or ability to undertake the proposed cruise, the Owner may require that you hire an approved captain for a period to be determined by the Owner. The Charterer is responsible for paying these fees (see Captain’s rates above) directly to the Captain. This responsibility is removed if you hire a Captain from our pre-approved list. 17.

Subject to the above, the Captain and the crew will do their best to respond to all reasonable requests of the Charterer.
