Spanish Term fletador de casco desnudo
English Term bareboat charterer
The contract charter brokers use for a boat in this situation is known as a "demise contract" or bareboat contract. When a yacht uses this contract, charterers almost always hire the crew that's on board the boat. Obviously, it would be impractical to recruit and train a different crew for a single charter. In a worst case, if a crewman is injured while on charter, and hence, under the charterer's employ, he can sue the charterer for compensation. http://www.yachtingnet.com/destinations/how/to4.html
Special Note: When you are the skipper of a vessel, your primary legal and moral responsibility is the safety of your crew, guests and the vessel. This is no small point, the charter company is trusting the safety of $150,000+ worth of boat to you. Most companies use a "demise bareboat contract", in which; during the term of the contract, you are 100%, totally responsible for the vessel and any damage the vessel may cause. So disregarding a charter company's "daylight only" sailing rule and hitting a reef means that you could be held responsible for all repairs, towing charges, plus fines for damaging the reef, plus legal damages from the company and for any injuries to persons aboard the vessel. Also since you were sailing after sunset the company's insurance for the vessel is not in effect so they will not cover anything. Hitting a reef in the Florida Key's National Marine Sanctuary can result in a $10,000 fine.
