Please read your Houseboat Rental Agreement carefully before you book your trip. Any monies received by Shasta Marina at Packers Bay for occupancy of a Houseboat Rental indicates the acceptance of the terms of our Houseboat Rental Agreement in full. All policies are strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of all Renters and Guests of the Renter to be familiar with all policies pertaining to rental.
Rental Requirements: A Reservation may be booked with a $1,000 security deposit. For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is considered to be the Renter. All other persons involved with the rental are considered to be the Renter’s invitees, and all discussion regarding the reservation, cancellation, and damage policies will be discussed with the Renter, not the Renter’s invitees. The Renter understands that he/she must be at least 25 years of age (except Mother’s Day Weekend and Memorial Day Weekend, the Renter must be at least 30 years of age). A copy of the Renter’s valid driver’s license is required at the time of arrival. All Renters or Captains designated by the Renter must go through a complete orientation on houseboat handling and operating.
Security Deposit: The $1,000 security deposit paid is not part of your rental amount. It is above and beyond the rent and is 100% refundable by check the day you go home, provided the boat is returned clean, undamaged, full of gasoline and with initial inventory intact. Gas tanks are filled at renter’s expense upon return of rental. Gasoline may NOT be charged against the deposit and NO CASH will be refunded. A minimum cleaning fee of $100 will be charged on all boats returned unclean. A late charge of $100 per hour or any part of an hour will be charged for late returns.
Rental Payment: Full Rental must be paid 75 days prior to boarding. You may authorize Shasta Marina at Packers Bay to charge the credit card that you have on file automatically on the due date (75 days prior to boarding date).
