Terms and conditions for Maverick Boat Adventures
Sussex Bike Hire
1.1 Maverick Boat Adventures (hereby referred to as ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’, ‘the company’, ‘MBA’) is an British Water Ski and Wake Boarding approved training centre as well as a rib charter company and has been operating since 2019.
1.2 We offer first class water ski and wakeboard training from a fully qualified instructor, as well as inflatable ringo rids and ocean trips. These are referred to collectively as our ‘product’ in this document.
1.3 We try to operate as liberally as professionally as possible, setting out as few guidelines as we are comfortable with, relying on you (the customer) to act with courtesy toward other customers, our staff, and the general public.
1.4 It is specifically not a requirement that customers (whether payee(s), attendee(s) or both) read or sign a copy of these terms and conditions in order to be bound by them. At the time of making any payment by any method, you agree that you have read and are bound by these terms.
2.1 At the time of making a payment you agree to be bound by the rules set out in this document. If you do not agree with these terms then you should not proceed with a booking.
2.2 Failure to uphold any part of these terms and conditions may result in an immediate termination of services by us with no liability to you whatsoever. Failure by MBA to enforce these terms does not result in a waiver of such terms, instead it is up to the discretion of the director to enforce as he sees fit.
2.3 In making a payment, you agree that the attendee(s) of the course is physically suitable to attend the product which has been booked. We hold no liability for any health issues you may experience whilst attending any of our products unless by gross negligence on our part.
2.4. A full payment must be made before booking is confirmed. Customers have 1 week to settle the payment before the booking date goes back up for sale.
2.5 Settlement must be made before the commencement of the product. If such a settlement is not made, we reserve the right to resell the product and are not liable to refund any fee.
2.6 Once amounts are confirmed with MBA, the payee(s) are fully liable whether confirmed in writing or not. We do not accept provisional bookings.
2.7 If a cancellation is made towards boat tours prior to three weeks before the start date any money paid will be refunded. If a product of water sports is purchased such as wakeboarding, water skiing, wake surfing or inflatable rides, the product fee is not refundable. If a product of water sports vouchers is purchased such as wakeboarding, water skiing, wake surfing or inflatable rides the vouchers non-refundable expire after 1 year, which then they are regarded as not useable with a face value of zero.
2.8 If a cancellation towards a boat tour is made within two weeks of the start of the product we will make every effort to re‐sell the product booked, but you will remain liable for the full amount. If we succeed in reselling the product at the specified time, the fee received will be refunded.
2.9 Occasionally, discounts are offered. The offers can start and finish at any time, MBA is not liable for providing customers different prices.
3.1 MBA uses a wide variety of advertising and marketing techniques. We accept no liability whatsoever for any errors in any of these materials, it is the responsibility of the payee(s) to confirm all relevant details prior to booking.
3.2 Occasionally, publicity photos are taken for use in marketing. You agree to give permission for photos featuring the attendee(s) of the course, fee free. The majority of the time, this will be done by contacting the person in question when the photos are taken, but occasionally we are unable to make contact.
3.3 Our master price list is available in our leaflet and on our website, and may be subject to change. Quotations will be given upon contact with MBA, however any quotations given may be subject to additional conditions (for example, time-limited special offers.)
3.4 We are able to give information regarding the services that we offer – courses are subject to British Water Ski Federation (BWSF) programs and can be found on their website. You must make sure that you fully understand the product which is being booked.
4. The services we offer
4.1 It is the attendee(s) and/or payee(s) responsibility to ensure that the product that has been decided upon is suitable for them and any others they may be booking on behalf of. This includes being physically and mentally fit and able and meeting any requirements such as prior knowledge. If the attendee(s) are not suitable for any reason or miss part of the course without agreement with MBA, we reserve the right to cancel or reschedule the product booked depending on the customers decision and we are not liable for any refund if such a situation occurs.
4.2 You are not guaranteed to pass any part of any training course or experience. Any decision made by MBA staff or external examiners is final with respect to certification. The decision of Paul Burns is final in all other cases.
4.3 It is the responsibility of the attendee(s) to inform both MBA and their instructor/skipper(s) of any medical conditions or other considerations which may affect their ability to participate in any of our products.
4.4 Our products include activities which may require a suitable degree of fitness, it is entirely the responsibility of the attendee(s) and/or payee(s) to make an assessment of the attendee(s)’ fitness. If a cancellation is made due to the attendee(s) being unfit whilst on the course (whether for reasons of health, physical or mental fitness) then MBA is not liable to refund any monies. However, refunds or rescheduling will often be given for humanitarian reasons.
4.5 You agree that you have been warned against the possibility of serious or fatal injury or trauma resulting from (but not limited to) the tow rope and engine propeller when in or out the water. Furthermore, you agree that it is the responsibility of the attendee(s) to maintain a look out for hazards such as that mentioned. If such an accident occurs, neither MBA nor the skipper of the vessel is responsible for any compensation, as it is viewed by ourselves as an accident (i.e. it is an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally and is the fault of no-one.)
4.6 If any of our instructors or skippers administer medical aid, neither MBA nor said instructor/skipper is liable for the outcome, unless in the case of that persons proven negligence. MBA prefers not to blame people for trying to help others.
4.7 Unless specifically agreed with MBA, the age limit on our Ocean trips is 2 years old and every person onboard has to have a life jacket fitted and worn for the duration of the trip.. If a booking is made with persons under 16 we advise a private booking in case slower speeds need to be maintained. If customers require the vessel to reduce speeds then the captain will agree to drive slower. MBA is not liable for reduced speeds on days of the event we want to ensure everybody is happy on the day. The captain will decide the best option in all cases for reducing speeds. If an under 18 attendee(s) arrive they must be accompanied by an adult or advise MBA before booking the product. Any underage attendee(s) arrives without MBA having been informed beforehand, they may not be allowed to attend the course, and MBA accepts no liability for this.
4.8 MBA is in no way responsible if any of our products are booked for an attendee(s) who is not sufficiently experienced, capable or qualified. It is solely the responsibility of the payee(s)/attendee(s) to ensure that any pre-course recommended experience levels, or any other pre-requisites are met.
Water sports have a duration of 15 minutes per session, MBA decides on how long each session takes regarding customers skill level and time in the water. MBA will not be held liable of any reduced or extended time given to certain customers. MBA is a dog friendly company and will allow dogs on the boat if pre-arranged with the owner and skipper in charge for the day. MBA will not be held liable for any customers who do not wish for dogs to be onboard at the same time of their product.
5. Personal conduct
5.1 MBA permits alcohol aboard vessels, however, in accordance with the law (Section 80 (Non-Professionals) of the Railways & Transport Safety Act) this must be in moderation and must be whilst the vessel is not underway, whilst the attendee(s) might be required to participate in the operation of the vessel. We leave it up to the skipper of the vessel to determine the reasonable limits of this rule, and their word is final in all of these cases.
5.2 MBA does not permit smoking aboard any vessels
5.3 MBA allows no recreational drugs other than the above and caffeine.
5.4 The skipper of the vessel or instructor of the course has absolute authority, and should be complied with at all times (within reason). This is for the safety of the attendee(s), crew members and the general public.
5.5 Attendees must observe a high standard of personal conduct and obey all reasonable instruction given by any MBA staff.
5.6 Attendees who do not comply with any of the above, or according to the skipper or instructors prerogative, may have their service terminated with immediate effect, or may be discharged from the vessel at the nearest available port, with no liability to the instructor, skipper or CC whatsoever.
6. Our responsibilities
6.1 We will run the advertised BWSF approved course or other product according to company policy and guidelines.
6.2 We are responsible for supplying a clean, safe, insured and commercially coded vessel.
6.3 If any of our vessels or instructors/skippers are unavailable for any reason we reserve the right to change said vessel/instructor/skipper for a suitably qualified replacement. Under no circumstances does MBA guarantee to provide you with a particular vessel/instructor/skipper. This is in order to cover mechanical failure/force majeure, illness etc . Generally, we will fulfil requests for vessels and instructors, but this is not guaranteed.
7.1 MBA and all properties owned by the company are covered for all usual risks.
7.2 MBA is not responsible for any accident, incident, loss, damage or injury to the attendee(s) or attendee(s)’ property unless in the case of our proven negligence and any authority invoked making an official judgement on the matter.
7.3 MBA recommends insurance to cover health, travel, property, accidents, cancellations etc. There have been many incidents of dropping electronic devices overboard, and so we recommend this in particular.
8. Unusual products
8.1 MBA provides own-boat tuition. It is the responsibility of the attendee(s) and owner(s) of the relevant vessel to ensure that said vessel is safe and comprehensively insured for the relevant activities/tuition that has been booked. MBA holds no liability for the failure of equipment or insurance on these vessels unless in cases of proven negligence on our part.
8.2 Likewise, MBA provides yacht delivery services – to which the same rules apply (as 8.1)
8.3 No refund will be provided for physical goods (for example, gas, clothing, RYA books etc) purchased from the office, unless such physical goods are unused and returned as sold.
9. Any payee(s)/attendee(s) suffering from sea sickness or any other situation results in the request to get back to dry land will be down to the decision of the captain. The captain will decide on a safe haven for drop off. MBA is not liable for any incident that could happen during or after the drop off.
9.1 The payee(s)/attendee(s) have the right to change/cancel a booking up until 2 weeks prior to the first day of the booked product. A refund will be provided if a cancellation is made up until this time.
9.2 After the 2 week time limit, refunds will not be provided unless the product is resold by us. If the product is resold, a refund will be made.
9.2 If the attendee(s) decide whilst the product is ongoing that said product is not suitable (for example due to the attendee(s) being seasick), MBA is not liable to provide any refund unless in cases of proven gross negligence. Depending on the decision of the director, rescheduling of the product will normally be allowed, with this happening in the majority of cases.
9.3 If the dates of a fully booked product are changed for any reason at least 2 weeks before the start date of the product, according to agreement with MBA management, then said product will be provided in full, at a time of the payee(s)s/attendee(s)s discretion, with no further payments. If the rescheduled product is cancelled, no refund will be provided.
9.4 If the product is cancelled or if the attendee(s) decides to depart the course at any time, MBA is not liable for any refund. However, the director may make a further decision based on his discretion – more often than not, a rescheduling will be provided.
9.5 In the vast majority of cases, all rescheduling and cancellations are settled very simply and rapidly. Multiple course changes are allowed, depending on the director’s discretion.
9.6 In all cases, the final decision of any refund or re-booking/change of date lies with the director and principle of the company.
9.7 In the case of any cancellation in any case under any circumstances, MBA is not responsible for any further compensation than the course fee (for example, travel expenses etc.)
10. Cancellation/booking change on our part.
10.1 If any product is cancelled by MBA (for example due to weather), the payee(s)/attendee(s) have the right to a rescheduled product at a time of their choosing. This rescheduled product is then defined as a ‘first’ booking in section 9. Rescheduling can only be done on days free to be booked. If a product of waters ports such as water skiing, wakeboarding wake surfing or inflatable rides is cancelled by MBA (for example due to weather conditions or the ability to not provide a suitable skipper) the payee(s)/attendee(s) have the right to a rescheduled product at a time of their choosing.
10.2 In the case of any cancellation in any case under any circumstances, MBA is not responsible for any further compensation than the course fee, and only then to the conditions above.
10.3 In the case of any cancellation in any case under any circumstances the payee(s)/attendee(s) have the right to a full refund at the date of the confirmed cancelation. If a refund is not requested by the payee(s)/attendee(s) 2 weeks after the product start date MBA will not be held liable to provide such a refund.
10.4 Occasionally, adverse weather affects our destination(s) requiring a change in destination(s). If this occurs, MBA views the product as delivered, and no refund or compensation in any form will be provided.
10.5 It is the attendee(s)/payee(s)s duty to contact MBA prior to the product start date to confirm that the product is going ahead. We strongly recommend that a valid mobile/landline phone number is provided to us in case an incident occurs at the last minute.
11.1 Any complaints, comments, concerns or otherwise must be made first to the skipper/instructor of the course in question, whereupon most issues will be dealt with. If the issue is more serious, it must then be taken up with the director between the start and end date of the product, whereupon in most cases it will be dealt with. More serious issues will be resolved through email or telephone conversations at a later date, and compensation may be provided on the discretion of the director.
11.2 Under these terms it is not acceptable to accept the product we provide, raise no mention of the issue with staff at MBA and subsequently make a complaint. Any complaints such made will be addressed but under no circumstances will any compensation be provided. This is so we can address your complaint in person and directly.
