I. Obligations of the lessor

1. Suitability of the boat

The lessor will provide the renter with a roadworthy and technically perfect boat including the prescribed accessories for use.

2. Maintenance, breakdown, cleaning

The boat provided by the lessor is regularly maintained. If the boat breaks down, the lessor is not liable for any damage caused to the renter as a result. The boat will be handed over in a clean condition. A cleaning fee of € 90 is due for this. This is to be paid immediately after the rental period has expired or, if necessary, offset against the deposit.

 

II. Tenant's obligations

1. Rental price

The rental price is based on the current version of the lessor's price list attached to this contract. The rental price is paid in advance when the trip begins.

2. Driver

The boat may only be driven by the tenant or under their supervision. The tenant is responsible for the actions of the respective driver as if they were his own. The provisions of this contract that benefit the tenant also apply to the benefit of the respective authorized driver.

3. Duty of care

Tenants must treat the boat with care and observe all relevant and technical rules for use and properly secure the boat. Travel in water depths greater than one meter must be observed and adhered to. The tenant is also obliged to check that the prescribed equipment of the respective boat is complete before departure. If prescribed equipment is missing on board after departure, the tenant is solely liable for this.

4. Restrictions on use

The renter is prohibited from using the boat for motorsport events, demonstrations, for testing purposes, for commercial passenger and goods transport and for other illegal purposes, even if they are only permitted under the law of the place where the incident occurred.

5. Reporting obligation

In the event of an accident, the renter must immediately inform the lessor of the details in writing, submitting a sketch, at the latest when returning the boat. The accident report must contain the names and addresses of the people involved and any witnesses, as well as the official registration numbers of the boats involved. The renter must notify the police after the accident if the findings required to clarify the accident cannot be reliably made in any other way, e.g. with the help of witnesses. Opposing claims may not be accepted. The renter must immediately report any fire or theft damage to the lessor and the responsible police authority.

6. Return of the boat

The renter is obliged to return the boat to the lessor at the agreed location at the end of the rental period. The boat can only be returned during business hours. If the return date is exceeded, the renter is obliged, without prejudice to further liability, to pay compensation for the period of the delay in the amount of the rental price for each additional hour of driving started or completed, 15% for each additional hour.

 

III. Liability / cancellation of the lessor

The lessor (i.e. himself and his employees) is liable, apart from the violation of essential contractual obligations, only for gross negligence (i.e. for intent and gross negligence). For boats and yachts that were brokered to the end customer exclusively by other owners or providers, a brokerage fee of 20% of the charter price applies. This is non-refundable after successful brokerage, even if the service provider does not carry out the charter or cannot release the brokered boat. The service from SunboatsCharter is fulfilled with the successful brokerage and acceptance of the booked service by both parties. The end customer must make claims for damages to the company that ultimately carried out the charter.

If the charter or rental is cancelled due to bad weather for safety reasons, the charter or service will be postponed and rescheduled for a later date. The customer will receive a voucher for this. If the charter has already started and it has to be cancelled for safety reasons or the customer expressly requests this, the charter will not be repeated at a later date and there will also be no refund.
