Qualifications required for bareboat charters in Greece
Bareboat yacht charter in Greece, legally requires two crewmembers capable of commanding the yacht (skipper and co - skipper). The skipper's seamanship and competence is proved with a
recognized sailing certificate or a sailing club (or sailing school) membership. An official statement/ declaration form stating their sailing competence may be also required in case the
harbour authority considers necessary. The co - skipper should provide the same certification as the skipper, if not, then he/ she can complete and sign an official self-declaration form
stating his/ her sailing competence for the port authority. Padomar will assist you with all the necessary formalities.
If I need to hire a professional skipper?
In case you need to hire a skipper, we can settle everything so that a very experienced professional skipper will join you at extra charge. Please remember that a skipper needs to be provided with his own cabin, as he is obliged to sleep onboard.
Yachts’ charters begin and end Saturdays for multiples of seven days. In the low season period however, this may be flexible and there could be some exceptions always depending on yachts availability.
Always charters begin at 17:00 hrs on the first day. In case we can deliver the yacht earlier – without compromising our standards – we will do so, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Charters end at 09:00 on the last day of charter. Usually our clients return to Padomar bases the evening before, (normally Friday) sleep on board and depart around 09:00 hrs on Saturday morning, giving us time to have the yacht prepared and in perfect working condition for the next charter.
Fuel : Yachts are delivered with their tanks filled up.
Port or Marina fees: Applies to almost all ports in Greece, at varied costs.
Optionals and End cleaning as per price list.
The refundable deposit guarantee.
All our yachts are insured against fire, marine and collision risks, third party damage and against any and all loss or damage in excess of the amount of the deposit guarantee. If there is no damage or loss to the yacht or her equipment, this figure is returned to you.
We strongly suggest you buy a suitable travel insurance before leaving home, including cancellation insurance to protect your booking deposit.
Cancellation fees are calculated depending on period of time between the date of cancellation and departure date:
After signing the contract - up to 90 days prior to embarkation: 3% of the total charter fees is retained as administration fees.
Booking cancelled between 91 and 63 days prior to embarkation, 30% of the total charter fee.
Booking cancelled between 63 and 21 days prior to embarkation, 50% of the total charter fee.
Booking cancelled less than 21 days prior to embarkation, 100% of the total charter fee.
Padomar will return the cancellation fee, minus the administration fee, if the cancelled yacht gets other charter for the same period under the same conditions.
