In 2018 new international standards for bareboat charters were agreed which set out minimum service levels and equipment requirements for bareboats offered for charter.
The International Compliance Requirement from the ISO (ISO 20410) includes: Tourism and related services — Bareboat charter — Minimum service and equipment requirement.
These new INTERNATIONAL standards set out the MINIMUM service levels and equipment requirements for bareboats offered for charter on inland, coastal and offshore waters and must be followed by operators to conform with the international standards and meet EU regulations.
They cover all service aspects, including: duration, location, assistance, boat details, handover/handback procedures, also specifics related to the equipment and the contents of the bareboat manual.
