Our Frequently Asked Questions list
In almost all areas, you can sail without a licence (with a few exceptions). The charter operator will discuss in advance whether you have sufficient knowledge to take on the charter trip. On the spot, you will receive instructions about the technique on board and you will be taught the tricks of the trade.
The charter price is the price for (usually) a week, not per person. Since the number of people who can sleep on board varies from 2 to 6, you can share the charter price of the motor yacht (e.g. if you rent the yacht with a friendly couple). Per person, you will then not even be that expensive.
The Linssen yacht is extremely well-equipped. Just as in your own home, you will have a fitted kitchen, bedroom(s), toilet(s) and shower(s). The larger the yacht, the larger the spaces and the larger the inventory. The beds are made. In the kitchen drawer you will find cutlery and everything. You only need to bring your personal belongings such as clothes and shopping for the first few days. A supermarket is almost always close by, so you can do your shopping on the day you arrive.
The charter yacht is insured by the Linssen charter partner. Ask the provider for the conditions and excess. Despite the fact that very little goes wrong, it is of course always possible that you suffer damage. This may be caused by someone else or you may have accidentally hit something yourself. The low speeds of Linssen yachts mean that any damage is often limited. It is best to tell the charter company straightaway what has happened, take photos if necessary and, if someone else is involved, you may have to call in someone else to deal with it - just as you would if you had an accident with your car.
With all Linssen Boating Holidays partners, you pay a deposit. In the event of damage, (part of) this deposit will be retained. The amount depends on the hire price or type of boat. The bigger (and more expensive) the boat, the higher the deposit. The deposit usually has to be paid in advance on the spot. Take this into account and look carefully at the conditions. If in doubt, please contact the relevant partner.
Since the ships are privately owned, the rules differ from one charter partner to another. Usually, (small) dogs are allowed. However, there is often an extra cleaning charge. Please take your dog into account. Ports often have metal footbridges. Most dogs do not like to walk on these. Also getting off the ship will not be easy. You will probably have to lift the dog from the ship to the fixed quay.
Always take others into account. Do not let the dog do his business on board and once he is off the ship, it is necessary to look for a dog toilet.
De kosten voor de eindschoonmaak zijn niet inbegrepen* in de huurprijs en zijn verplichte kosten. Deze worden separaat op uw offerte/bevestiging vermeld.
In sommige gevallen is een all-in huurprijs inclusief de eindschoonmaak. Kijk naar de voorwaarden van de charterpartner.
The departure and return times vary by charter provider, but are usually based on sailing out on day 1 at 15.00 and returning on the last day of hire at 10.00. Please take this into account when planning your trip.
