Veldman Yacht Charters in Sneek    
 


Reservations
We recommend that you make a reservation by telephone, via fax or via e-mail. We will then send you a contract on receipt of your reservation. This contract is, duly undersigned by you, to be returned to us. Your reservation will be confirmed after the payment of 50% of the total rental sum.
The reservation will be cancelled if this payment has not reached us within 21 days after booking. The remaining 50% of the hire charge can be transferred to our account 3 weeks before sailing or, alternatively, be paid to us on sailing

Insurance
Ail our boats are all-risks insured for sailing on inland waterways in the Netherlands. Our permission is required for sailing on the IJsselmeer, you will then be required to ensure that you have lifejackets and an Ijsselmeer chart on board. These can be obtained from us. If this requirement is not met, then our boats will not be insured. The own risk of the insurance is equivalent to the deposit amount. The deposit (€ 500/-) is required to be paid in cash before sailing. If there is damage to the boat or the inventory, then the costs of this are set off against the deposit amount.


Experience
You have to be experienced in order to be able to sail a boat. A navigation licence is of course good to have but does not make one experienced. If you have little or no experience on a similar boat, then we recommend that you follow a sailing course at the Vaarschool Friesland [Friesland Sailing School]. If on sailing it appears that you do not have the necessary experience, we can then still oblige you to attend the sailing course at the Vaarschool Friesland!

By a late return of the boat, the lessor has the right to charge € 45/- for each late hour.

Delivery
On departure, your boat will be clean, with full tanks of diesel and water and a full 2nd gas cylinder. When you return the boat, the diesel tank will then again be filled by us. It is further expected from you that the inside and the outside of the boat is clean (in the same state when you received this from us). You can allow the cleaning to be carried out by us, we will then charge € 45/- to € 100/- for this.
In exceptional cases, the lessor has the right to diverge from this.

Domestic pets
Pets may only be taken on board with our permission. There is a surcharge of € 45/-, per pet for this (max. 1 pet per boat). This € 45/-, is therefore not included in the hire charge and is completely separate from the cleaning charges.

Parking space
