Reservation Policies


Daily Damage Fee / Security Deposit
Your yacht will be insured by the yacht's owner subject to the insurance policy deductible. The charterer's liability for loss of or damage to the yacht or its equipment will be limited to the insurance deductible amount.

Superior Charters offers an optional Daily Damage Fee to protect you and your crew in the event of loss or damage to the yacht or its equipment.  When booking online, the Daily Damage Fee is required in order to complete your booking.  If you decide to book directly through our office, you may select one of the following two options for your charter booking:


  1. Daily Damage Fee (DDF). A daily fee which reduces your liability for the insurance deductible as described in the Yacht Charter Agreement. A valid credit card number on file is required  to secure the insurance deductible.
  2. Security Deposit. A refundable security deposit payable in cash or check. This security deposit can be applied to the repair of damages or loss of equipment or cancelation fees. This deposit does not relieve the charterer of loss or damage over the amount of the deposit, as described in the Yacht Charter Agreement.


Should you elect to assume all risk and  waive the Daily Damage Fee, the daily fee will be credited towards your balance due and the refundable security deposit is due via cash or check 45 days prior to the first day of charter. The security deposit will be refunded one month after termination of the charter in the event of no loss or damages.


Change Policy

  • Once you've confirmed your reservation, you may make a change of dates or vessel to an existing booking up until season launch or 45 days prior to your trip (whichever comes first) for a $100 administration fee.
  • A change of boat on an existing booking after will be considered a cancellation and will incur any fees outlined in the Cancellation Policy.


Cancellation Policy

  • If a reservation is changed in any way (date, boat or reassignment to alternative skipper) or cancel of any or all charter days prior to season launch or 45 days prior to the start of the trip (whichever comes first), the booking deposit shall be refunded less a $100 administrative fee.
  • After season launch, Charterer is responsible for 100% of the charter cost. Charges will be applied to the credit card number taken at time of deposit when a cancelation is made.
