Terms and Conditions of Hire

Booking Deposit of £200: This is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable.

Balance Outstanding: You are responsible for the whole of the charter fee. The balance of the charter including any decorations, pre-ordered drinks and/or entertainment must be paid to us no later than 28 days before departure.

Booking Cancellation: In all cases of cancellation the booking is forfeit. If you cancel your booking you must notify ChesterBoat in writing, using recorded or registered post. Should cancellation be within the 28 day period in item 2 you will be responsible for the whole amount of the charter fee and any other costs such as entertainment. ChesterBoat will endeavour to obtain another charter for the boat but until such re-charter is obtained you will remain responsible for the balance of the hire.

Discos and Live Bands: These are only available by booking and paying for them by arrangement through ChesterBoat.

No food, drink or entertainment may be brought on board other than that booked through ChesterBoat.

ChesterBoat reserves the right to refuse carriage of anyone and the right to terminate or vary the cruise for whatever reason. Safety is paramount. In the event of flooding or adverse weather conditions we are usually able to offer a fixed landing point and continue with the function on board the vessel. In the rare event that severe flooding prevents us from boarding safely and we have to cancel the function entirely we will give as much notice as possible and make a full refund. We can accept no other liability for cancellation in this instance.

As a courtesy to riverside residents, all music must finish 30 minutes before the end of the cruise after 10:30pm.

Account Bar Facilities: A cash bar is available during all cruises. If you require an account bar facility, this must be arranged prior to the cruise and credit/debit card details will be required before the cruise date. The amount of your account bar will then be charged to your card the day after your cruise. To arrange an account bar facility, please call our office on 01244 325394.

Catering: Final numbers for catering must be confirmed and paid for 7 days before the date of your cruise.

Cruise Details: 

Your vessel is booked for the agreed duration at the agreed price. If late guests delay the departure of your cruise, the boat will return to the quayside at the scheduled time, regardless of actual cruise time.

All of our skippers have the authority to terminate any cruise before the scheduled time if the behaviour of passengers poses any risk tot heir own safety, the safety of the vessel or river users. All boats have mobile phone contact with our land base during the cruise.

In the event that you experience any problem during the cruise, please speak to a member of the crew and we will do our best to sort things out on board for you.
