YPI CREW, in partnership with Hill Dickinson law firm, have created a free downloadable guide designed to help superyacht Captains and their crew navigate through the complexities of the MYBA Charter Agreement (2017, current terms).
The MYBA Charter Agreement is a legal contract that establishes a binding relationship between the yacht Owner and Charterer as it outlines the key contractual obligations that charter Captains and crew must fulfill on behalf of superyacht Owners.
By understanding the key terms of the Charter Contract, Captains and crew should feel better prepared and more confident facing the busy charter season ahead.
Written by Martin Penny and Francesca Conn, experienced lawyers from Hill Dickinson, the guide draws on their expertise in handling numerous charter disputes representing both Owners and Charterers. By sharing their knowledge and insights, Martin and Francesca aim to help yacht Captains prevent potential issues from escalating into legal claims, ensuring a successful charter season.
The "Charter Contracts for Yacht Captains" guide emphasizes the crucial role that yacht Captains and crew play in upholding the contractual obligations of the Owner and promptly resolving any arising issues. As the charter experience is fundamentally rooted in a legal contract, it is essential for Captains and crew members to familiarize themselves with its key terms to minimize risks and provide an unforgettable luxury experience for superyacht charter guests.
