These are our Booking Terms and Conditions for BAREBOAT CHARTERS.
BAREBOAT CHARTER – The hire of one of our yachts for your own use subject to experience and qualifications.
Once Devon Sailing Experiences receives your enquiry, we will check availability and contact you to confirm the booking.
Your booking is not secured until we contact you to confirm and a 20% deposit has been received. Please do not book any travel arrangements until you have received confirmation of your booking.
Payments can be made by card or bank transfer. Please note there is a 2% charge for credit card payments.
The balance of the fee is due 4 weeks before the experience starts. If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before the start of the voyage, then full payment will be taken at that time.

If you wish to cancel a CHARTER
If you wish to cancel a booking, then please notify us as soon as possible. If you cancel your booking within 14 days of paying your deposit and at least 8 weeks prior to departure, you’ll receive a full refund, less an administration fee of £50.00 per crew member. A deposit will become non-refundable 14 days after the date of booking. If you cancel a CHARTER less than 4 weeks before the start of, or after the commencement of your CHARTER then you will be liable for the full cost of the booking. In all cases, if we are able to resell your cancelled booking, we will reimburse you the full cost less the deposit. You are strongly recommended to take out travel insurance to cover yourself should you need to cancel.
If we have to cancel a CHARTER
In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel due to unusual and unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, (Force Majeure, including very strong winds forecast), we will endeavour to offer an alternative voyage at a mutually agreeable date.
If we have to cancel a voyage due to any other reasons, e.g. mechanical failure, then a full refund or an alternative voyage will be offered.
In all cases, our liability is limited to offering a refund only up to the amount paid and we will have no further liability to you in respect of consequential economic loss.
