The Charterer shall inspect the Vessel before the start of the Charter Period in the company of a representative of The Charter Company and sign The Vessel’s inventory and condition.

If such delay exceeds 25% of the Charter Period, the Charterer shall be at liberty to treat the Charter as cancelled. The Charterer waives any and all claims, damage, debts, liability, demands, costs, expenses, suits and/or attorneys’ fees as a result of a delayed or cancelled charter. 5.4 The Charter Company is not liable under clause 5.2 if such failure is as a result of Acts of God (including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane, pandemic or other natural disaster), war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether war is declared), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation, terrorist activities, nationalization, government sanction, blockage, embargo, labour dispute, strike, lockout or interruption or failure of electricity or telephone service. If The Charter Company asserts this clause as an excuse for failure to perform his obligation, then he must prove that he took reasonable steps to minimize delay or damages caused by foreseeable events, that the party substantially fulfilled all non-excused obligations, and that the Charterer was timely notified of the likelihood or actual occurrence of an event described above. 6 Insurance and Liabilities 6.1 The Vessel and her equipment shall be insured on the terms of the Institute Yacht Clauses or on comparable terms for her full value with third party damage cover of no less than USD 1,000,000 subject to a policy deductible no greater than the Security Deposit.

The Charterer shall not accept a tow or take any other action that could lead to a claim for salvage unless in imminent peril and unless a reasonable fee has been agreed for the action to be taken. 6.6 In the event of major damage to the Vessel during the Charter Period involving a claim on the Vessel’s insurance or in the event of a breakdown of Ancillary Gear and Machinery rendering the Vessel unseaworthy or unusable, either a pro rata credit will be made for the period during which the Vessel was unseaworthy or unusable or (if the Charterer so elects and subsequent charters of The Vessel permit) the Charter Period will be extended by the period of such enforced unfitness, provided that neither the Charterer nor any member of his party caused or contributed to the damage or breakdown and provided also that The Charter Company shall not be liable to the Charterer for any other compensation in respect of damage or breakdown whether in respect of consequential or financial loss or otherwise, save where damage or breakdown is caused by the negligence of The Charter Company and results in death or personal injury. 7 Charterer’s Obligations 7.1 The Charterer will rely on the Skipper’s judgment and restrict the navigation of the Vessel to the Cruising Limits and to those areas within the Cruising Limits in which the Vessel (i) is legally entitled to be navigated and (ii) can be safely navigated by the Crew in the prevailing conditions. 7.2 If the Charterer fails to accept delivery of the Vessel within 24 hours of the start of the Charter Period and has not by then notified The Charter Company of his intention to accept delivery later during the Charter Period, The Charter Company may treat this Agreement as terminated without prejudice to his rights to recover any unpaid portion of the Charter Fee and to recover damages in respect of any other loss caused to The Charter Company through the failure of the Charterer to accept delivery of the Vessel. 7.3 The Charterer will pay all running expenses during the Charter Period including, but not limited to, food, water, fuel, bills of health, harbour and mooring dues, port dues, pilotage, local taxes, and all other provisions for the Charterer and the Charterer’s party. To the extent that on redelivery any consumables have not been restored to their handover levels, the Charterer shall be liable to The Charter Company for the cost thereof. 7.4 The Charterer shall not sub-charter or part with control of the Vessel without the prior written consent of The Charter Company. 7.5 The Charterer shall take care of and assume full responsibility for the safety and maintenance of the Vessel and its equipment at all times during the Charter Period including when unattended. When the Charterer leaves the Vessel unattended, the Charterer shall remain fully responsible therefor and should take all reasonable precautions as directed by the Skipper to secure the Vessel and the equipment and gear on board. 7.6 Where loss or damage is caused to the Vessel, the Charterer shall use his best endeavours to obtain the prior approval of The Charter Company before putting any repairs in hand and will in any event obtain a written estimate for any work likely to cost more than £100.00. 7.7 The Charterer shall follow the guidance of the Skipper to not allow the Vessel to dry out or be stranded and shall ensure that the Vessel is moored only at a secure and well-maintained mooring point. The Charterer shall not anchor the Vessel in a place where anchoring is restricted or that is not suitable for anchoring such a vessel. 7.8 The Charterer shall neither use the Vessel for any purpose other than private pleasure cruising for himself, his crew and his guests, nor race the Vessel.

If the Charterer fails so to redeliver the Vessel, he shall be liable for twice the pro rata Charter Fee for every day or part thereof by which redelivery is delayed, unless such delay is caused by the operation of an insured peril or circumstances beyond the Charterer’s reasonable control defined in clause 5.4 of this agreement. Due to the availability of weather forecasts, abandonment of the Vessel away from the Port of Redelivery due to bad weather does not constitute a circumstance beyond the Charterer’s reasonable control. 7.14 The Charterer’s obligations under this Agreement shall continue until redelivery. 8 Agreement’s Cancellation 8.1 If the Charterer cancels the agreement more than 90 days before the start of the Charter Period, the Charterer is entitled to a full refund of his/her advance payment and another other payment or deposit paid. 8.2 If the Charterer cancels the agreement between 90 to 45 days before the start of the Charter Period, the Charterer will lose his/her 30% advance payment. Any another other payment or deposit paid will be refunded. 8.3 If the Charterer cancels the agreement from the 45th days before the start of the Charter Period, the Charterer will lose the entire charter fees paid minus the skipper fee of USD 150/day unless the cancellation occurs within seven days of the Charter Period. Any other payment or deposit paid will be refunded. 8.4 Notwithstanding the above, the charterer should receive a full refund if the trip is cancelled due to circumstances described in clause 5.4 of this agreement or a partial refund if the trip is shortened under the same circumstances. 8. 5 If prior to the commencement of the Charter Period, The Charter Company gives notice to the Charterer of cancellation, the Charterer shall be entitled to repayment without interest of all sums paid by him to The Charter Company. 8.6 If the Charterer fails to comply with any provision of the agreement, The Charter Company may forthwith terminate the Agreement and resume possession of the Vessel, but without prejudice to the right of The Charter Company to recover damages in respect of any breach of the Agreement by the Charterer. 9 General 9.1 Save as otherwise provided in the terms of business of The Charter Company, and subject to the statutory rights of the Charterer, the provisions of the Agreement shall exhaustively and exclusively govern the rights and obligations of the parties. 9.2 This Agreement is subject to the laws of Grenada.
