The first phase has been completed in the installation of what will be a total of 200 new secure Helix-type moorings in bays throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands. All 200 Moorings are anticipated to be ready for use by local and visiting boaters, both private/recreational and commercial, in the coming season. Any yacht, boat, tender, or dinghy between 1ft and 65ft, whether local private/recreational or commercial, or visiting private/recreational or commercial, can use the moorings for up to 14 days. 

The blue-banded moorings are for overnight use with a payment of $35 per night paid online at BoatyBall (boatyball.com). The yellow-banded moorings are for day use with a donation of $10 per use paid online at BoatyBall (boatyball.com) or, for frequent users, with an annual payment calculated by multiplying their daily use by twelve months in a check made out to “Moorings” provided to VIPCA. Fees collected fund each mooring’s third-party liability insurance and year-round maintenance. VIPCA is offering privileges, including free mooring use as compensation, to anyone who nominates themselves as a ‘bay host’ to assist in frequent and routine reporting of the moorings in any bay in which they reside or visit daily.
