The company Euronautic d.o.o. (hereinafter: EN) specializes in the provision of services for the active nautical holiday, and based on these general terms and conditions, it ensures its customer's services of several days of accommodation on board vessels for commercial purposes for rest and recreation.
EN guarantees that all its vessels are technically sound, professionally maintained, suitable for navigation, and have a license or certificate of yacht competence.
The person who confirmed the booking and made the advance payment (hereinafter: the Client) establishes a legal relation with EN and confirms compliance with these general terms and conditions. Everything described in these conditions represents a legal obligation for the Client, as well as for EN. These terms and conditions are the foundation for settling disputes between the Client and EN.
When booking, the Client must provide the true details required in the booking procedure.
PRICE AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
The prices for boat accommodation services are published in Euro (€) in the currently valid EN price list. The middle rate of the Croatian National Bank on the day of payment shall be used to calculate the invoice for the contracted services. It shall include value-added tax in the amount prescribed by the currently valid regulations. EN reserves the right to change the price list without prior notice, and it shall enter into force on the day of publication on the company's official website.
The given prices include a technically adequate, clean vessel with full fuel tanks, usage of the vessel and its equipment, compulsory hull insurance, insurance according to the terms of individual insurance policies for specific boats, mooring in the home marina, and Croatian navigation permit.
The prices for the accommodation on vessels do not cover the costs of marinas during the charter, port taxes, fuel costs, and other necessities, car parking, and medical insurance for the crew. The accommodation prices neither include the travel insurance "package": insurance against accidents and illness during the trip, insurance against damage or loss of luggage or the voluntary health insurance."
To confirm the charter booking and be entitled to the prices in the current price list, the Client makes an advance payment of 50% of the total charter price. The remaining amount up to the complete value of the charter is paid not later than four weeks before the takeover of the vessel, which leaves the Client the ability to prepare the crew members on time and to pay the travel and medical insurance, to find a suitable skipper, etc.
The Client can take over the booked vessel only under the condition that all necessary payments have been made correctly in accordance with the booking process, which is proved by the invoice issued by EN and provided that he has fulfilled all other conditions and obligations determined in these general terms and conditions.
CANCELLATION OF THE CHARTER BOOKING
In case the Client wishes to cancel the confirmed booking of the vessel, this must be done in writing (e-mail, fax, or registered mail) to the addresses of EN listed on the official website of the company.
The date when EN receives written notification of cancellation is the date which is the base for the calculation of the cancellation costs, which is done in the following way:
In case the Client cancels the rented boat and manages to solely find a substitute Client at the time of cancellation of booking who is willing to take over his rights and obligations, EN charges the Client only the difference between the original contracted price and the real price agreed with the new Client.
EN does not assume responsibility in case of changes or failure to perform the paid services or part of the services due to force majeure (war, riots, strikes, acts of terrorism, extraordinary sanitary conditions, natural disasters, interventions of competent authorities, etc.).
TAKEOVER OF THE BOAT (CHECK-IN)
EN is obliged to provide the Client with a technically good and completely equipped vessel with a full fuel tank, clean and tidy, ready for navigation.
The Client has the unconditional obligation to deposit EN funds as a guarantee to compensate all eventual losses or damages during the use of the vessel, even if the insurance policy does not cover them. The deposit is made in cash, with a credit card slip, or by a POS terminal with an automatic preauthorization.
If the Client is, for any reason, unwilling or unable to leave the mandatory cash deposit, EN reserves the right to terminate the contract at the expense of the Client and to keep the entire amount paid for the accommodation services.
The deposit is refunded to the Client in total after an EN representative ascertains that the vessel was returned at the agreed time to the agreed place, tidy and undamaged, with full fuel tanks, and provided there are no claims from third parties, or are expected, against the Client in connection with his use of the vessel.
In case of gross negligence or damage of the vessel and/or its equipment and loss of vessel parts, the Client covers all expenses. EN will keep the amount of the deposit accordant with the cost of the repair and/or the cost of purchase of the equipment or spare parts of the vessel. If further chartering is not possible due to the damage and/or loss of equipment of vessel/equipment, EN shall keep the deposit amount accordant with the lost profit.
The deposit is obligatory even when the vessel is rented with a skipper provided by EN.
In case the Client, without previous notice, fails to take over the vessel within 48 hours after the agreed check-in time, EN is authorized to terminate the contract unilaterally at the sole expense of the Client, and the Client is not entitled to subsequent reimbursement claims.
If, for whatever reasons not attributable to force majeure, EN is unable to hand over the booked vessel to the Client at the agreed time and place, EN has a time limit of 24 hours to provide the Client with another vessel of similar characteristics. Provided EN fails to do so, the Client is authorized to terminate the contract and is entitled to a full reimbursement of payments made to EN. In case the Client decides to wait for a substitute vessel outside the agreed time limit (24 hours), he is entitled to reimbursement of an amount equal to the value of daily use of the vessel for the days in which he was unable to use the vessel (contractual penalty). EN's responsibility for any amount higher than the agreed price of the vessel is excluded, and the Client waives the right to claim compensation for damage caused by the inability to deliver the contracted boat at the agreed time and place.
During the takeover of the vessel (check-in), the Client is obliged to carefully examine and test the vessel's and equipment's conditions and verify that the actual state of the inventory and equipment is accordant with the existing check-in list. All eventual complaints are made in writing before the beginning of the journey. Any disguised defects and shortcomings of the vessel and/or equipment that could not be known to EN at the vessel handover, as well as defects and malfunctions that occur after the handover of the boat, which EN could not predict, do not entitle the Client to seek reduction of the rental price.
Non-correspondence of equipment and inventory with the inventory list supplied to Client upon booking does not authorize the Client to make any deductions of the contracted price and represents no basis for reimbursement of damage - provided that the safety of navigation is not endangered.
The vessel is handed to the Client with all valid documents necessary for the rental (permit, crew list, concession...) and all other enclosures in the vessel's folder (list of harbor offices, fuel stations...). The Client is obliged to handle all received documents with due care and to return these documents to EN undamaged when the vessel is being returned.
If the Client loses or damages the received documents or any part thereof during the rental, the Client is obliged to pay 100 EUR as a contractual penalty, which amount will be charged from the deposit, and the middle exchange rate of the Croatian National Bank on the day of payment shall be used for calculation.
Defects, incorrect recordings of instruments, or other problems with gear or equipment do not entitle the Client to refuse check-in, stop the trip, or make financial claims – provided that correct navigation is possible by applying classical methods and if the vessel and crew safety guarantees good navigation.
EN may refuse to hand over the vessel in case of:
the charter has not been fully paid
the Client has not paid the deposit or insurance thereof
the necessary documents are missing or insufficient (no passport (ID card), navigation license approved by the Ministry of Sea, license for radio communication)
If, during check-in or the trial trip, it turns out that the skipper does not have the required qualification for this task.
If a Client wants to extend the accommodation period on the vessel, he must contact EN, return to the agreed harbor, and obtain written consent from EN for the vessel's new time and place of return. The contracted charter is considered prolonged when the Client takes written permission to extend the used service from EN.
RETURNING THE BOAT (CHECK-OUT)
The Client is obliged to return the vessel at the agreed time, no later than by 9.00 AM of the last day of the contracted use of the vessel for the accommodation of passengers, in the harbor determined by contract, clean and tidy, with a full fuel tank; ready for further navigation, i.e., in the same condition as it was assumed. The Client is obliged to take the garbage off the vessel and leave it at the designated place in the marina.
If, for whatever reason, further navigation during the charter is impossible or an excess of the agreed return time is inevitable, the Client must contact EN and the base manager for further instructions. Information about the notification must be recorded in the vessel's log. Unfavorable weather conditions are not an acceptable reason for a delay in the return.
In the event of a delay, the Client vouchers to pay a fine of 2% of the rental price for each hour of delay until 12 hours. For a delay over 12 hours from the contracted check-out hour, the Client pays a daily charter price for every commenced calendar day. The Client covers all costs from the delay of the checkout suffered by EN. Digressions from this rule are possible only by previous agreements between the Client and EN.
In case the vessel is returned to a port not appointed as the destination port, EN has the right to immediately charge firstly from the deposit all costs arising from the transfer of the vessel to the agreed port, as well as the contracted penalty for the delay in the amount of 2% of the charter price for each hour exceeded as well as all compensation for the damage occurred during the transfer, if the insurance policy does not cover them. If the costs and the penalty exceed the deposit, the Client agrees to pay the relevant difference immediately.
When the vessel is returned (check-out), an EN representative checks the general condition of the vessel and its equipment and compares it to the inventory list.
The Client is obliged to report any eventual damage or loss to an EN representative. If damage has occurred on the underwater part of the hull, or if there is suspicion of such damage, a detailed inspection of the vessel is required, either by a diver or by using a crane. EN determines the manner of the inspection, and the Client covers the costs.
If the Client attempts to cover up damage or loss during the charter, he is obliged to pay a fine of 200 EUR and compensation for the damage.
In case the vessel is not returned with a full fuel tank, as outlined in the checklist which the Client signs at the handover of the vessel, the Client will be charged with the fuel, as well as the service of filling the tank, up to the amount of 100 EUR at base Biograd/100 EUR at base Pirovac.
If the vessel is returned unclean and untidy, EN will charge special cleaning and handling costs from the deposit caused by the need to hire cleaning services.
THE CLIENT'S OBLIGATIONS
The Client undertakes and declares:

If EN repairs the defect within 24 hours, the Client is not entitled to compensation. Emergency telephone numbers for defect notifications are in the vessel's documentation.
If the vessel has to stay in the port due to repairs and events not attributable to EN's intention or gross negligence, the Client is not entitled to raise any claims if the repair does not exceed ¼ of the entire charter period. Otherwise, the Client has to be reimbursed on a pro-rata basis. There are no further reimbursements by EN on this basis.
Suppose there is reasonable doubt that during the charter, the vessel has been damaged in the underwater part. In that case, the boat has to be navigated to the nearest port to perform an underwater inspection of the boat and, if necessary, to organize the lifting of the boat to dry land.

THE SKIPPER'S OBLIGATIONS
The Client who assumes the role of the skipper on the vessel must possess all necessary nautical knowledge and skills, as well as a valid GMDSS radio-telephony license. If the Client does not possess the required documents, knowledge, and skills, he is responsible for ensuring that the vessel is operated exclusively by a crew member who fulfills these requirements.
EN may ask the Client or skipper to demonstrate their knowledge and skills at sea in the presence of an EN representative. The time spent for this testing is included in the period of using the vessel for accommodation purposes.
If during the tests, an EN representative establishes that the Client or a skipper proposed by the Client does not possess the appropriate knowledge, experience, and/or valid licenses for navigation, EN can appoint a professional skipper to join the crew, at additional costs, according to the valid price list.

In case of severe damage or when more than one vessel is involved, the incident must be reported to the competent port authorities, and corresponding documents must be requested, which will be handed over to the insurance provider. There is a possibility that damage covered by the insurance policy, which was not properly and timely reported to EN, the competent authorities, and the insurance provider, and for which all necessary documentation does not exist, will not be acknowledged by the insurance provider. In this case, the Client is solely responsible for the damage.
When the boat is damaged, the Client is obliged to cover all costs in accordance with the conditions of the hull insurance, but only up to the amount of the security deposit. The prices of damages to the boat and/or the equipment caused by negligence and/or loss of one or more parts of the equipment are fully covered by the Client.

Personal data shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to their physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.
During its activities, EN collects, uses, transmits, and processes the personal data of its customers, employees, business partners, and other persons who can be identified directly or indirectly (hereinafter: data subjects).
Depending on the nature of the joint business relationship or other types of affiliation, the EN may have various personal data of data subjects at its disposal. This includes identification and contact information, financial data, transaction data, data on contracted services and products, accounts, correspondence addressed to the EN, and documented data (e.g., copies of identity cards, passports, professional qualifications, credit cards, etc.) as well as publicly available data.
The EN processes personal data and may use them only for the purpose for which they were collected. The processing of personal data is permitted only if and to the extent that at least one of the following principles applies:
• Data processing is necessary for compliance with legal obligations to which EN is subject;
• Data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or to undertake specific actions at the request of the data subject before entering into a contract within the area of activity of the EN;
• Data processing is required for the legitimate business interests of the EN or a third party unless those interests are exceeded by greater interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects who request the protection of their data.
• The data subject has given explicit consent to data processing.
The EN undertakes to process personal data legally, fairly, and transparently for the data subject, to collect them for unique, explicit, and legitimate purposes, and not to process them further in a manner inconsistent with these purposes. The data will not be further processed for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research, or statistical purposes.

In cases where personal data are not received directly from the data subjects, the EN commits to additionally provide to the data subject information on the categories of personal data concerned, the source of the personal data, and whether they come from publicly available sources.
The aforementioned information will be disclosed to the data subject within a reasonable timeframe, depending on the circumstances of each specific case.
In certain cases, the EN may request the data subject's consent to process their data for specific purposes. When the data subject's data is processed based on their consent, the data subject shall have the right to withdraw their consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. It shall be as easy to withdraw as to give consent.
The fundamental rights of subjects whose personal data are being processed include the following:
The right to be informed about the collection and any further processing of personal data;
The right to withdraw the consent for personal data processing and to request the termination of the personal data processing;
The right to inspect the personal data contained in the data collections;

The data subject retains the right to obtain the erasure of personal data relating to them without unnecessary delay, and the data controller has the obligation to erase personal data without unnecessary delay if one of the conditions prescribed by Article 17 of the Regulation (“the right to be forgotten”) has been met.
Suppose the EN has the explicit and voluntary consent of the data subject at their disposal. In that case, they may use personal data to inform the data subjects about their products, services, and offers that they find potentially essential or exciting for them.

The EN is obliged to safeguard the subject's data following special legal regulations relating to protecting specific data categories for a longer or shorter period.
According to its objective capabilities, the EN undertakes appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the necessary protection of personal data. These measures apply to computers (servers and workstations), networks and communication connections, and applications.
Only authorized EN employees familiar with the data confidentiality requirements are involved in the data processing. They are prohibited from using the data for personal purposes or making them accessible to unauthorized parties. Employees whose access to such data is not necessary to complete their work tasks are also considered unauthorized parties in this context. The obligation of confidentiality also applies after the termination of employment.
According to the legal provisions outlined in the Regulation, any data subject who may have an inquiry on how the EN uses their data or who wishes to file an objection to the processing of personal data can contact the EN in writing, at the official address of the company`s office or through the public, the official e-mail address of the company email@example.com. The EN undertakes to respond as quickly as possible to any objection or inquiry relating to the personal data of the person filing the inquiry/objection.
Every Client has the right to a complaint if he/she considers the services of EN to be incomplete and/or not performed in a qualitatively satisfying manner. The Client may demand a proportional reimbursement only if a written complaint with all necessary documentation is presented upon check-out, not later than seven days. A written complaint must be signed by both parties – by the Client and by an EN representative. Subsequently received or incompletely documented complaints will not be considered by EN.
EN is obliged to provide a written solution to the received complaint within 15 days of receipt. EN can postpone the deadline for the complaint solution for an additional seven days with the Client's previous written approval, namely for gathering information and checking the complaint claims with the persons directly or indirectly involved.
The Client renounces the right to mediation of any other party, arbitration of Association of Croatian Travel Agencies, law institution, or releasing the information to the media until EN has passed a solution for the complaint.
The maximum compensation per complaint can amount to the complained part of the services and can not include services already provided or the total rental amount. This excludes the Client's right to compensation for immaterial damage.
The Client cannot deem EN to be responsible for adverse climate conditions, cleanliness, and temperature of the navigation destinations and other similar situations and events that may cause the Client's dissatisfaction and are not part of the quality of the rented vessel (e.g., polluted sea, bad weather, poorly maintained beaches, crowds, theft or damage to property of crew members, etc.).
In the event of simultaneous offers, discounts can not be combined. Discounts do not apply for last-minute offers.
If the Client is unsatisfied with EN's solution and cannot reach a reasonable agreement with EN, he/she is entitled to court arbitration. For cases like this and other disputes between the Client and EN, the court's jurisdiction in Zagreb, applying Croatian law, is agreed upon.
These terms and conditions shall enter into force on the day of publication on the company's official website and are considered to be available to all third parties on the day of publication.
Any changes and additions to these general conditions are possible and valid only in written form.
By accepting the booking and paying the agreed price, the Client accepts the above-mentioned terms and conditions, whether he read or interpreted them. These General Terms and Conditions and navigation manuals exclude all former terms and conditions and navigation manuals.
These general terms and conditions are binding for all Clients without exception, regardless of whether they accepted the booking directly through EN or an authorized agent. No person can refer to the fact that these General Terms and Conditions were not known and/or interpreted to him/her.
HIRING A PROFESSIONAL SKIPPER
