The Moorings Adds New Models To Its Charter Fleet
Heading south to sail in the Caribbean? The Moorings, headquartered in Clearwater, Florida, has added two brand new monohulls to its island fleets. Charter a Beneteau-built Moorings 48.4 in the British Virgin Islands, St. Martin and St. Lucia and by December, The Moorings 42.1, also made by the same French sailboat as the 48.4, in St. Lucia and Grenada.
The 48.4. designed by Berret-Racopeau, features four spacious en-suite cabins with rooms for up to 10 guests. Outside, a convertible transom drops down to become a swim platform. Inside, large portholes let in lots of sun to brighten up the air-conditioned interior, which is decorated with light taupe cushions and oak finishings. This model is equipped with a state-of-the-art Raymarine Navigation system, bow thruster and 75hp Yanmar diesel engine. The 42.1 offers a great balance under sail and extra comfort inside and out by having its mast positioned further back than older models.
“The Moorings is dedicated to providing the newest and best yachts available in the charter industry today,” says Ian Pedersen, marketing manager for The Moorings – North America. “To this end, we are thrilled to announce the arrival of these new monohulls, custom-designed with our charter guests in mind. The Moorings was founded by people with a passion for sailing, and we are proud to continue that legacy with this next generation of yachts arriving this winter.” www.moorings.com
