Refund/Cancellation Policy

Once you have received a booking confirmation, cancellations and rebooking are allowed up to 7 days prior to the charter. Failure to appear on your booked date or to cancel and rebook at least 7 days prior to your booked date will result in a $200 cancellation fee (the balance less the $200 fee will be refunded).

Weather Related Cancellations

Now & Zen is safe, stable, and provides amble protection from the weather. It can be sailed comfortably under normal conditions which include a chance of an afternoon thunder storm, occasional showers, cloudy, or windy weather. A windy day can be fun and exciting; imagine moving through the water at 10 MPH on wind power while hardy rocking or heeling.

Because you are chartering Now & Zen on a demise agreement there is  no weather related refund of the cancellation fee except for the issuance of a named storm (hurricane) watch that coincides with the charter time. You can choose to use the vessel at the dock or we will work with you to adjust the hours to maximize the best weather conditions. Cancellation fees can be applied to another charter (one time) within the calendar year or six months, which ever is longer.

If you do not want to hire a pre-qualified Captain, please request our “Sailing Resume Form” for yourself or provide us with the resume of the Captain you intend to hire. Reservations are not accepted until after we have approved the resume of the intended skipper and received a security deposit check. Skippers who are not pre-qualified (including hired captains) will require orientation/checkout and check-in and associated fees. Click for details.

    We are so excited for our 4 night charter in October! The boat looks amazing and we can’t wait to sail and relax

    • Hello Ralph,
      I have family coming into town during the week of May 15 – 22, 2011. This sounds like something all would love to do and I have the word out that I am checking the details.

      I am interested in the afternoon or sunset charter for 12 people sometime during that week, most likely the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday of that week.
