Payment Options and Privacy Policy

XO Yacht club wants to make all of our clients happy and satisfied. We will try to accommodate all requests subject to availability. Our team will work with our clients to find the best solution to any requests. To make a reservation, XO Yacht Club will need a signed contract and a payment. 

If your charter date is more than 7 days out:

A 30% down payment is required to reserve a charter with the final balance due 7 days prior to your charter date. Once the down payment and signed completed contract are received, then the vessel is reserved.   If the remaining balance is not paid on the due date of the contract, then the down payment will be forfeited and the vessel will be put back on the market and the reservation will be cancelled.

If your charter date is less than 7 days out:

100% of the charter rate is due and payable at the time of signed contract. The vessel is not reserved until full payment and signed completed contract are received


The payment can be made by credit card, bank transfer, PayPal, Zelle, or cash. 30% prepay of the total amount, but not less than 500$  is to be paid during the reservation. The payment of the remaining part is due 7 days prior the charter. If the reservation has been made less than 7 days prior the charter, it must be fully paid for at once If the payment is made by cash, then a credit card will be needed on the day of departure for any incidentals incurred (extra time, fuel, cleaning, damaged property, etc.).


In case of making an amendment, the client is obligated to reimburse the expenses incurred.  If an amendment is made up to 15 days before the start of the charter, then there are no penalties.  If an amendment is made 15 days or less before the start of the charter, then the client is required to reimburse the expense.  The parties may be released from liability in case of occurrence of Force Majeure.


In case of a cancellation, the client is obligated to reimburse the expenses incurred.  If a cancellation is made more than 15 days before the start of the charter, then the deposit is fully refundable.  If a cancellation is made less than 15 days prior the start of the charter, then the deposit is not refundable.

When full amount was paid and if CHARTERER must cancel less than 7 (seven) days prior to charter, all monies will be forfeited and the CHARTERER will remain responsible for full charter expenses including all applicable taxes and fees. If the OWNER must cancel, the payment shall be refunded in full by OWNER to CHARTERER.

It is further agreed that, in such event, the Owner shall pay the broker the full commission on the full charter amount.

In case of unforeseen expenses or damages to property by the CHARTERER, the amount will be deducted from security deposit.
