Apart from causative negligence or other breach of duty on the part of the company, every person using any part of the premises for any purpose whether by invitation or otherwise does so entirely at their own risk.
The Company accepts no obligation to an owner or any other person to enforce any provision of these Regulations against any other person and as such may not be required to do so.
1. General Requirements
1.1 The Company shall supply the Owner with a copy of the Regulations current at the time of application for a Licence. The regulations are also displayed in the Marina Office, Main Reception and are available on the Company’s website (www.mylor.com). The Company reserves the right to introduce new regulations on grounds of legal requirement or for the safety or security or good management of the Harbour or Premises and to amend such regulations as from time to time shall be necessary. Such regulations and any amendments to them shall become effective on being displayed on the Company’s public notice board or other prominent place at the Company’s Premises and the Company shall have the same rights against the Owner for a breach of the Regulations as for a breach of the terms of a Licence.
1.2 The Owner or any visitor to the Premises understands and agrees that the Company has the right to require the Owner, crew, guests or visitors to leave the premises immediately if they act recklessly, unreasonably or fail to observe these or other applicable laws or regulations.

2.1 The Company shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performing its obligations hereunder, or for any loss or damage, caused by or arising from events or circumstances beyond its reasonable control (which includes, without limitation, acts of God, wars (whether declared or not), riots, civil commotions, malicious damage, embargoes, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, accidents, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving the workforce of the Company or any other Party), failure of a utility service or transport network, unusually severe weather conditions, default of suppliers or subcontractors or the actions of third parties not employed by the Parties).
2.2 The Company shall take reasonable steps to maintain security at its premises, and to maintain its facilities and equipment in reasonably good order and condition.
2.3 Notwithstanding Clause 2.2, the Vessel, and any other property of the Customer left at the Company’s premises, is at the Customer’s own risk.
2.4 The Company shall not be under any duty to salvage or preserve the Vessel from the consequences of: (a) any defect in the Vessel and/or (b) an accident which has not been caused by the Company. However, the Company reserves the right to salvage or preserve the Vessel, at its sole discretion, in appropriate circumstances and in particular where the safety of people, property or the environment is at risk.

3. PRICES AND ESTIMATES
3.1 The price for the Work shall be the price set out in the Order, or if no price is quoted for the Work, the price will be determined based upon the labour and materials expended and services provided in accordance with the Company’s usual tariff at the time when the Work was performed, as duly invoiced to the Customer (the “Price”).
3.2 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Price will not include expenses incurred for pilotage, salvage, tugs, harbour dues and similar charges which shall be invoiced separately to the Customer.
3.3 The Company will exercise reasonable skill and judgment when giving an estimate or indication of Price. However, estimates are always subject to the accuracy of information provided by the Customer, are often based on a superficial examination and do not include the cost of any emergent work which may be necessary nor the cost of any extensions to the Work. The Company reserves its right to (a) increase the rates under its usual tariff (provided that such increase does not take place more than once in any twelve (12) months) and/or (b) subject to Clause 3.4, increase the Price for the Work.
3.4 The Company will inform the Customer of any proposed increase in the estimated Price, together with the reasons for such increase, and will proceed with the Work after having obtained the Customer’s approval (such approval not to be unreasonably delayed or withheld). The Customer shall remain responsible for the cost of labour and materials already supplied or remaining to be supplied which are not affected by the proposed increase in the Price.
4.1 Unless otherwise agreed between the Parties in writing, payment for all Work provided shall be due immediately upon receipt of the Company’s invoice. Payment shall be deemed to have been made when received by the Company in cash or cleared funds at the Company’s nominated bank account. Time for payment is of the essence.
4.2 If the Customer fails to make any payment due to the Company by the due date for payment, the Company has the right to charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of four percent (4%) above Bank of England base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment.
4.3 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under these Terms of Business in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding except as required or permitted by law. The Company may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by the Company to the Customer.
4.4 To the extent permitted by law, the Customer hereby grants to the Company a lien and a continuing security interest, and, where applicable, a maritime lien, over the Vessel as security for payment of the Price until full payment of the Price by the Customer, or until the Customer has given security to the Company in a form acceptable to the Company (for example a letter of guarantee from a bank reasonably acceptable to the Company or lodgement of a cash deposit with a professional third party agent reasonably acceptable to the Company). The security provided shall be sufficient to cover the debt with interest and, where the debt is contested, a reasonable provision for the Company’s prospective legal costs and expenses.
4.5 The Company shall be entitled to charge the Customer for storage and the provision of any ongoing services at the Company’s normal daily rates until full payment (or provision of security) by the Customer and removal of the Vessel from the Company’s premises. The Customer shall be entitled to remove the Vessel upon providing proper security.
5.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, time estimates given for completion of the Work are given in good faith and without guarantee.
5.2 The Company shall not be liable for any failure or delay in the performance or completion of the Work, or for any such loss or damage resulting therefrom, unless the Company has expressly guaranteed completion by a specific date in writing, or the delay arises from its wilful acts or omissions or negligence.
6. THE VESSEL’S MOVEMENTS
6.1 The Company shall have the right to order such movements of the Vessel and such tests or trials it deems necessary in order to perform and determine the due completion of the Work and/or for reasons of safety, security or good management of the Company’s business and premises.
6.2 The costs of such movements, trials and/or tests including the cost of any bunkers and/or consumables shall be borne by the Customer.
7. TITLE AND RISK
7.1 Risk in all goods, equipment & materials supplied by the Company to the Customer shall pass to the Customer at the time of supply to the Customer of such goods, equipment or materials or at the time when such goods, equipment or material are assigned or affixed to the Vessel.
7.2 Title to all goods, equipment and materials supplied by the Company to the Customer shall not pass to the Customer until the Company receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Work.
8.1 The Company guarantees that, for a period of twelve (12) months from completion of the Work (the “Warranty Period”), the Work will be free of defects in workmanship and materials (when supplied by the Company) and in conformity with the agreed specification. The Customer shall give notice in writing (as per Clause 15) to the Company of any defects in material or workmanship (“Defective Work”) which may become apparent and shall provide the Company with sufficient evidence so as to establish the nature and extent of the Defective Work. This guarantee applies only to the Customer: a person who is not a Party to these Terms of Business shall not have any rights to enforce these Terms of Business.
8.2 The geographical area within which this guarantee will be honoured is restricted to the United Kingdom.
8.3 On notification by the Customer of the Defective Work, the Company will be given a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Defective Work and if it is the Company’s responsibility, the Company shall repair or re-perform, in whole or in part, at its discretion, the Defective Work. Delivery of repairs or re-performance under this guarantee will be made in accordance with these Terms of Business.
8.4 The Customer shall, immediately after the discovery of any Defective Work, take all appropriate steps to mitigate any loss or damage and to prevent any Defective Work becoming more serious.
8.5 The Company shall not be liable for any Defective Work if the defect arose as a result of: (a) the Customer’s failure to follow the Company’s oral or written instructions; (b) the Company following any drawing, design or specifications supplied by the Customer; (c) fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence or abnormal working conditions; (d) materials supplied by the Customer and/or (e) changes made to ensure compliance with applicable statutory or regulatory standards.
8.6 Any remedial work which is put in hand by the Customer directly without first notifying the Company and allowing the Company a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Defective Work shall invalidate the guarantee provided under this Clause 8.
8.7 Where the Customer is not a Consumer: these Terms of Business do not contain any express or implied term as to quality or fitness for any particular purpose, unless, prior to the Work being performed, the purpose has been clearly identified in writing to the Company and the Customer has stipulated that it is relying upon the Company’s skill and judgment to ensure this purpose has been met; and
The Company accepts no liability to the Customer in respect of any loss of profit or turnover which the Customer or its customer or any other person may sustain in consequence of the failure of any faulty or unfit article supplied to the Customer by the Company.
8.8 The Company shall assign to the Customer any and all of its rights against the manufacturer or supplier of any particular article used in the Work or supplied to the Customer as part of the Work.
9. QUALITY STANDARDS

11. RIGHT OF SALE

This Act confers a Right of Sale on us in circumstances where the customer fails to collect or accept re-delivery of the goods (which includes a vessel and any other property).

Mylor Yacht Harbour Holding Company Terms & Conditions (Harbourside Holidays)
If you have any queries about the accommodation, the harbour facilities, or the local area please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you choose the right accommodation for your holiday and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Please use our online booking system to book your holiday home. The website shows the most up to date availability for all the cottages. When you make the booking a deposit of 50% will be required, payable by debit or credit card, the balance is payable one month before the booking start date. Full payment will be required if the booking is made within one month of the booking start date. If you are unable to pay by credit or debit card online please telephone the office and we can make the booking for you and accept payment by cheque made payable to Mylor Yacht Harbour Holding Company Ltd. Payment of the 50% deposit or the booking fee in full constitutes a confirmed booking. All deposit payments are non-refundable.
When you submit a booking via our online reservation system you will receive an automatically generated booking summary by email to the email address you have provided in the booking form. This does not form a contract between us. A contract shall only arise when your booking is subsequently confirmed in writing via a letter of confirmation sent to you by post or email.
THE BOOKING CONTRACT
The contract is between the guest named on the booking form (the Guest) and Mylor Yacht Harbour Holding Company Ltd (the Company). The person named on the booking form certifies that he or she agrees to these Terms and Conditions on behalf of all persons using the accommodation and accepts full liability for all monies payable and responsibility for all damages and breakages incurred during the contracted period.
We strongly recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance as you will be liable for all monies payable once your booking has been confirmed. If you are unable to make your holiday dates after the booking has been confirmed we cannot accept alternative dates. We shall, however, endeavour to find a replacement booker and if successful a refund of the balance can be made. In this event the deposit remains non-refundable.
COVID: HARBOURSIDE CANCELLATION TERMS UPDATE 15/07/20
The Government has introduced a period of reduced VAT for holiday accommodation between the 15th July 2020 and the 31st March 2021 of 5% instead of the standard 20%. We are passing this saving on to our guests. The VAT rate is applied at the point of payment, so paying in full now for a holiday next year will attract the reduced VAT rate resulting in a considerable saving.
We are encouraging guests to do this and save money, but we recognise that paying in full for a stay so far in advance poses an additional risk, especially in the current climate. To alleviate this risk, we are introducing a special cancellation policy for bookings made during this time:
- This policy applies to booking made, and fully paid for between 15th July 2020 and 31st March 2021.
- Bookings can be moved or cancelled and fully refunded up to 4 weeks before the arrival date.
