After your boat is accepted, DO NOT USE IT as you are contractually not allowed to. The buyer has signed that he will accept your boat in its condition at survey. If you take that one last weekend cruise and hit a log you have now given the buyer a reason and legal out not to close on the sale. Of course, sellers may be aboard to remove personal effects as you still own the yacht, but the boat should not leave the slip. Doing so is clearly a risk not worth taking. The term Force Majeure deals with all the natural events that could occur outside of buyer and seller control after contract and acceptance but before closing. Events included are; a neighboring boat catching fire, a hurricane, or a failed bilge pump sinking the boat, etc. While rare, these events can occur, and this section should spell out the rules for these occasions. Read it and hope you don’t need to apply it, but it has happened especially in the hurricane season.
