Weekly charters usually begin and end on Saturdays. In case of uneven periods of time, such as a ten or twelve-day charter, we will do our best, depending on the circumstances, to accommodate your requirements. All charters begin at 17:00 on the day of departure and typically end at 09:00 on the day of arrival. However, you will be required to return to base on the last evening of your charter (latest until 18:00) as this is the minimum time required to ensure that the boat is delivered to the next charter in perfect working order
