Terms & Conditions
By docking a boat at Cape Charles Harbor, a vessel owner (the Owner) automatically agrees to the terms & conditions hereby disclosed by Cape Charles Marine Services Inc. (the Yard). This agreement is between Cape Charles Marine Services Inc. (the Yard/CCMS) and the vessel owner (the Owner). By this agreement, CCMS agrees to permit the Owner to dock the above-named vessel at the Yard for the period indicated.
Payment for transient vessels is due on arriving at the Yard. Payments for monthly dockage contracts are due by the first day of each month.
Reservations require a one-night dockage fee deposit. Cancellation of your reservation is required at least 48 hours in advance. If you cancel within less than 48 hours of your arrival, the one-night dockage fee is non-refundable. “No shows” will be billed the full amount of their reservations.
The Owner warrants that adequate hull insurance (inclusive of its equipment and related components) to protect the Owner’s interest and those of any and all parties with a financial interest in the vessel is in force at the time of signing, and the primary risk of loss shall be with The Owner.
The Owner is responsible for carrying liability (P&I, including crew coverage as warranted) insurance on the vessel.
The Yard requires the Owner’s name and telephone number to be marked on each dinghy kept at the Yard.
The Owner, on behalf of the Owner and the Owner’s insurer, indemnifies and holds the Yard, its officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from all claims, damages, and losses, including attorney fees and loss of use, unless caused by the sole negligence of the Yard, its employees, or agents.
The Owner agrees to leave a key to any cars parked for an extended period of time at the Yard with an employee of the Yard office. Failure to do so may result in tow fees for the Owner if the vehicle must be moved.
The Owner agrees to allow the Yard at its sole discretion to take whatever actions it deems appropriate to attempt to safeguard the vessel in the case of threatened or occurring natural events that may place the vessel in peril, and to indemnify and hold harmless the Yard, its officers, directors, employees, and agents for any damage or loss that results therefrom. The Owner agrees to pay for extraordinary expenses incurred by the Yard while fulfilling this portion of the agreement.
The Owner is responsible for his/her vessel. The Owner agrees not to hold the Yard liable for any damages caused by weather, other vessels, Harbor visitors, or owner neglect.
The Owner is liable for any damage to the Harbor or Yard property or other vessels caused by the Owner’s vessel.
The Owner must maintain his/her vessel in operating, seaworthy condition. Derelict, leaking, or sinking vessels must be removed from the Harbor. If the Owner does not remove an inoperable vessel, the vessel will be removed at the Owner’s expense and the Owner’s right to dockage will be discontinued.
If the Owner sells his/her vessel, dockage does not convey to the new Owner. CCMS may grant a short period of time for a new Owner to move the vessel out of the Harbor. If the vessel is not moved promptly, CCMS reserves the right to haul the vessel at the Owner’s expense and/or bill the Owner at the nightly rate until the slip is relinquished.
The Yard offers long-term dockage on a first-come, first-serve basis. Following the summer season, the Owner has first right of refusal for the slip the next season. If the Owner relinquishes the slip, CCMS will offer the slip to the next Owner on its waiting list.
CCMS allows a limited number of live-aboards on a case-by-case basis.
Payment for monthly dockage is due on the first day of the month. A 1.5% service fee is applied to all credit card transactions. Cash and checks are welcomed with no additional fees.
Owner may not “loan out” his/her slip to other vessels without written permission from CCMS. No “Airbnb” or short-term rentals may be operated out of the Town Harbor Marina.
CCMS may end this dockage agreement at any time and without cause by providing a 30-day notice to Owner.
