RESERVATION, FORMALIZATION OF THE CONTRACT AND DEPOSIT
1) It is necessary to present a personal identification document to formalize the contract, as well as the homologated nautical qualification required to pilot the boat that you want to rent. In the case of a foreign nautical qualification, it will be valid as long as it is approved in Spain.
2) The reservation will be confirmed and guaranteed by paying 40% of the total rental amount through our website or in our office. The remaining 60% of the rental price will be paid before boarding together with the deposit.
3) The deposit will be used to cover eventual damages, flaws and losses caused in the boat and its equipment, as well as to attend to the loss of profits caused by them.
4) The deposit will be paid before boarding and will be reimbursed to the client at the end of the rental period as long as the staff of PALAMÓS BOATS S.L. confirms that the boat is in the same condition in which it was delivered.
5) PALAMÓS BOATS S.L. will provide the rental contract that you must sign, which contains the rental conditions published here in detail. The signing of said contract implies acceptance by both parties of the aforementioned conditions.

The staff of PALAMÓS BOATS S.L. will explain and advise you on the operation of the boat and its accessories.
2) The boat will be delivered with full fuel and water tanks. Fuel is not included in the price on all boats that require a nautical license, so the lessee must fill the part consumed at the Port Marina Palamós gas station with the help of PALAMÓS BOATS S.L. staff. In case of not returning the full tank of fuel, the company will retain the amount corresponding to the fuel consumed plus a penalty of € 20 from the deposit.
3) The delay in the removal of the boat by the lessee for reasons attributable to him, will not determine the extension of the lease term. Likewise, if weather or other unforeseen circumstances force the lessee to delay the departure, this will not give the right to a reduction in the agreed price or an extension of the contract term, which will end on the established day and time.
4) Upon arrival the staff of PALAMOS BOATS S.L. will carry out a complete review of the boat to check its condition and that of all its equipment. It must be in the same conditions in which it was delivered. The client will be penalized with € 100 per hour or fraction if the boat is returned exceeding the established schedule.
