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).

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. Cancellation of your reservation is required at least 48 hours in advance. If you cancel within less than 48 hours of your arrival, a one-night dockage fee will be charged to your account. “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 Owner must submit proof of insurance and the vessel’s documentation or state registration number prior to arrival at the Yard.

The Yard requires the Owner’s name and telephone number to be marked on each dinghy kept at the Yard.

The Owner is fully responsible for the vessel’s condition during its stay at the Yard. The Owner is also fully responsible for any damage to the property of the Yard or to other vessels caused by the Owner’s vessel.

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.


Owner or Subcontractor Work Policy

CCMS allows owners to perform work on their vessels using their own tools, with the exceptions that 1) there is absolutely no sanding, grinding, or bottom painting. This is due to environmental concerns. Should an owner choose to ignore these requirements, the boat will be assessed for the appropriate amount of time it would have taken to paint and the owner will be billed that amount at CCMS’s rates.

Any person, except an owner of the yacht on which he is working or the owner’s full time captain, shall provide a copy of insurance coverage prior to doing work at the Town Harbor. Such coverage will include, at a minimum, liability in the amount of $1,000,000 and workers’ compensation in the amount of $500,000.

Our employees are very friendly and outgoing; please do not put them in an awkward situation by asking to use shop tools and equipment. We have had too many close calls with owners, captains and subcontractors and wish to avoid a serious injury. Under no circumstances will anyone other than CCMS employees use tools or equipment owned by CCMS.

Owners, contractors and crews who are doing boat work shall:

  • Sign in every day and indicate the nature of activities.
  • Observe all safety precautions and policies instituted by CCMS.
  • Not impede the progress of work being performed by CCMS or interfere with the CCMS work schedule.
  • Not enter any restricted area including private offices, stores, and shops except when accompanied by CCMS staff.
  • Immediately report injury to persons or damage to property and equipment; alert a member of CCMS staff and file a written report of the incident.
  • Enter premises only during normally scheduled hours of operation at CCMS.

Anyone found not adhering to CCMS policy will be asked to leave the yard.
