The insurance companies have a deductible in the amount of the deposit, which the renter bears in the event of any culpable damage event.

Motor damage, the personal belongings of the renter and those of the crew are excluded from the yacht insurance. Furthermore, the insurance is not liable for accidents caused by the persons on board.
