Insurance and equipment Carefree sailing

How are the yachts equipped?

Our yachts are tiptop and provided with all comforts. Of course, the equipment is different for every boat. In the overview of motorboats and sailboats you will find all boat specifications. You bring your own bed linen, towels and food (unless otherwise stated). Some yachts offer additional options such as gennaker, spinnaker and life raft. Select the option you want on the reservation form. Keep in mind a possible additional price. If required, we ask for the technical specifications and an extensive inventory list of the boat for you.

Are the yachts insured?

Carefree sailing starts with the right insurance. That is why all yachts are all risk insured and insured for rental. The corresponding deductible varies by boat. This is the deposit that you pay in cash to the lessor before departure. From abroad you do this with a bank transfer. If you return the ship on time and in good condition at the end of the rental period, the deposit will be returned.

Do I have to take out insurance myself?

Of course, prevention is better than a cure. This applies also to your sailing holiday. Sometimes things can go wrong. A good travel and cancellation insurance is therefore very important. To make it even easier for you, you can immediately take out the Holiday Policy with Unigarant when booking a yacht. If something does happen, your vacation can continue.

  • Coverage for loss of liability and deposit
  • Travel and cancellation insurance
  • Storm, ice and fog coverage
  • Quick assistance from the ANWB Emergency Center

Consequential damage and deposit

Did you accidentally sail against a jetty? Did you damage the engine or damage the cabin? There is a good chance that you will be held liable for this. With the Vaar Vakantie Policy you are covered. Unigarant also reimburses the deposit (up to a maximum of € 2,500) that you paid before departure. You only pay 15% of the deposit as a deductible.

The travel insurance covers

  • Luggage
  • Accidents
  • Medical costs
  • Dental costs
  • Extraordinary costs (in the event of an accident, illness or suffering)

Cancellation insurance

Unigarant will reimburse the cancellation costs if you cannot make the booked sailing trip due to an accident, illness or the death of a family member.

Storm, ice, cloud and mist coverage

Storm, ice or fog? Then you or your skipper may decide not to sail. With the Vaar Vakantie Policy you will receive a reimbursement from Unigarant.
