Mechanical delays are treated on a case-by-case basis. The crew will make repairs enroute, where we have the tools and capabilities to do so, at no additional charge. In the event of a major systems failure or repairs requiring parts and equipment not available to us, we will proceed to the nearest port and contact you for approval before any repair work is started. Generally speaking there are no charges for short delays.
As for weather delays; we do not charge for short delays. However, in the case of a major weather system or zero visibility, which allows us no choice but to remain at the dock or at anchor for a protracted period of time, we charge a discounted daily rate, to be agreed with client.
