as we all know we are living some difficult moments, worldwide, due to the pandemic of the Coronavirus and Covid-19.
First of all, I would like express to all of our customers my best wishes and hope you are healthy and safe. My deepest sympathy goes to those who lost their friends or relatives in these terrible past weeks and months.
We really hope the situation will be under control very soon so that we will be able to return to normality. Back to our “normal life” that we are used to live: back to work, to school, to meeting friends… and of course to one of favorite passions, back sailing again!
Special COVID charter conditions and payment terms
Some of you already booked yacht charters in 2020 and are uncertain what to do currently. You don’t know whether to wait or to postpone your rental period. Others are maybe thinking about planning their summer holidays for this year – or even 2021.
I would like to assure you that worldwide the charter fleets adopted special COVID conditions in order to find the best possible solution for all of our clients.
For already booked charters, most of the fleets offer the possibility to postpone your boat holidays in later 2020 or even 2021 or give you directly a voucher for the current or next charter season.
For future charters yacht owners are embracing very flexible booking conditions. They offer the possibility to cancel charters without loosing your funds – in case you would not be able to reach the base due to the pandemic – and feature special payment terms with extremely late payments.
In this way those who would like to spend their summer holidays 2020 on a yacht – even the situation so far is still uncertain – have the opportunity to reduce their risk to a minimum.
Yachting is safe in times of Coronavirus
Let’s also have a look into the future of our holidays.
Our behaviors in times of worldwide epidemics are supposed to change, and so do our travel habits.
The good news is that for sure yacht charters are some of the safest ways to travel:
You can travel alone or with small groups in the middle of the ocean, far away from other people and have the best opportunity to practice social distancing.
Yacht owners will make sure the vessels you are renting will be completely sanitized and disinfected so that your risk will be reduced to a minimum.
Holidays under the sun and on the sea are for sure a huge benefit for your immune system and make you feel healthier and happier.
… and indeed, HAPPINESS is what we are mainly looking for when going on board of a boat….
I would like to share my message of hope with you. I am sure that happiness and serenity will be back to our lives very soon. Please stay safe and take care of you, your families and friends.
Soon we will be able to sail again!
