These General Terms shall apply for all sales and deliveries from X-YACHTS A/S to the buyer save as varied by express agreement accepted in writing by X-YACHTS A/S.
Upon receipt of an order from the buyer or after discussions between the buyer and X-YACHTS A/S, X-YACHTS A/S will send to the buyer an order confirmation in writing. The buyer is requested to sign the order confirmation and return it to X-YACHTS A/S for signature. A copy of the duly signed order confirmation by both parties will then be send to the buyer. A binding contract shall be deemed to have been entered into only when the buyer and X-YACHTS A/S have both signed the order confirmation..
All prices are stated in DKK or EUR excluding VAT, taxes, duties and other charges and fees. If by no fault of X-YACHTS A/S or X-YACHTS A/S’ subcontractors, X-YACHTS A/S is delayed in the delivery of the product, X-YACHTS A/S shall be entitled to increase the price to reflect any actual costs incurred because of the delay. Furthermore, X-YACHTS A/S is entitled to adjust the price due to changing prices on raw materials or changing prices from sub-suppliers in consequence hereof or any changes in indirect taxes, rates of duty, rates of exchange, etc. All prices stated are ex works Denmark.

Any agreed delivery time is an estimated time of delivery and delivery on an exact date is not guaranteed. X-YACHTS A/S is not responsible or liable for any delays unless caused by X-YACHTS A/S’ gross negligence or wilful misconduct. Delivery is always subject to availability of the product or manufacturing, force majeure situations or conditions on which X-YACHTS A/S has no direct influence that prevents X-YACHTS A/S from complying with the agreed delivery time (strikes, sub-suppliers inability to deliver, fire, flooding, storms, IT-crash etc.).
However the Manufacturer shall of course use all reasonable endeavours in order to secure delivery on the agreed delivery date.
Delivery is subject to full and timely payment of the purchase price unless a written agreement to the contrary has been made.
If the buyer fails to take delivery of the products or fails to give X-YACHTS A/S adequate instructions at the time stated for delivery then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to X-YACHTS A/S, X-YACHTS A/S may store the products until actual delivery and charge the buyer for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage.
Shipment is to be carried out at the buyer’s own account and risk. X-YACHTS A/S is not responsible for any delay, damage, miscarriage or other irregularities that may occur during shipment. Insurance is made at buyer’s account on buyer’s written request.
If required by X-YACHTS A/S, the formation of any contract between X-YACHTS A/S and the buyer shall be subject to the buyer providing advance payment or an appropriate security (form, content and issuer to the satisfaction of X-YACHTS A/S) for the full and timely payment of the purchase price. Thereafter the buyer shall supplement such security as X-YACHTS A/S may reasonably request from time to time.
Buyer shall pay X-YACHTS A/S the purchase price in accordance with the payment schedule in the order confirmation. If there is no payment schedule in the order confirmation, the buyer shall pay X-YACHTS A/S the purchase price net cash on delivery.
Transfer of funds shall be made in accordance with a mutually agreed upon procedure. If no procedure is agreed upon, then the buyer shall transfer funds as directed by X-YACHTS A/S in accordance with normal and customary practices of the trade, provided that the funds shall be put at X-YACHTS A/S' free disposal in the country of X-YACHTS A/S' principal place of business free and clear of any encumbrances, levies, bank charges or fees of any nature whatsoever. The buyer shall pay X-YACHTS A/S the purchase price without any set-offs or counterclaims whatsoever.
In case of delay with payment X-YACHTS A/S is entitled to charge interest at the rate of 1% of the invoiced amount per each beginning month.
If delivery is made without full payment, for whatever reason, the title to the product delivered shall remain with X-YACHTS A/S to the fullest extend possible pursuant to Danish law until total and final payment has been made, including any interest and/or expenses. Without limiting the foregoing, X-YACHTS A/S may exercise right of retention pursuant to the Danish Merchant Shipping Act.
In the event the buyer does not strictly comply with the terms of payment set out in the order confirmation or herein, X-YACHTS A/S may, in addition to any other remedies available to X-YACHTS A/S, suspend all performance until the buyer has so complied.

Section 4 in these terms.
