Important Information


While sailing is relatively safe, there is always a degree of risk around water activities. Lifejackets are supplied and must be worn, when directed to do so by the skipper. When sailing, the yacht itself and its fittings may move unexpectedly. This can cause people to lose balance and fall, become entangled by ropes, or struck by yacht fittings moving quickly without warning.

The skipper will inform those on board of the potential risks involved with sailing, so that you can enjoy yourself and minimise the risks.

Yacht Charter Confirmation

A 25% deposit is required to confirm your booking. This is non refundable if a cancellation is made within 14 days of the charter date. If Beviamo Charters cancels a sailing due to adverse weather conditions or any other situation, a full refund of the booking fee will be given.

Final Payment

This is due on or before departure.


We recommend that you have your own comprehensive insurance to cover you while you are on holiday, particularly if you are from overseas.

Terms & Conditions

Prices are subject to change but will be confirmed at the time of booking.

Beviamo Charters reserves the right to alter, amend or cancel any tour at any time including when a charter is in progress, should the skipper feel that the weather or any other situation should warrant it. The skipper’s decision is final. All persons on board must comply with New Zealand Maritime Law and directions given by the skipper. Beviamo Charters accepts all charters upon the express condition that it will not be liable for any injury, damage, loss, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned, either by reason of weather, or any defect in support vehicles, vessel or through the acts of defaults of any company or persons engaged in conveying passengers or in carrying out the arrangements of the charter.

Hire time starts at Waikawa and terminates at Waikawa unless otherwise specified.
