MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Yacht charter company The Moorings debuted its newest power catamaran, The Moorings 433PC, at Yachts Miami Beach on Friday.
Constructed in collaboration with the boatbuilder Robertson & Caine, and following the successful larger 514PC, the 433PC adds another option to The Moorings’ power catamaran fleet. As with the 514PC, from its hull design to its interior layout, the new boat was crafted with the evolving needs of today’s power charterers in mind.
The first 433PC will begin operation at The Moorings' flagship base in the British Virgin Islands.
"Time at sea is best enjoyed with others, so we focused on creating a yacht that really brings that social aspect of chartering to life," The Moorings general manager Josie Tucci said in a statement. "Combined with a picturesque setting like the Caribbean, this is quite an extraordinary way to vacation at sea."
As is the company's practice, a consumer model is sold under the Leopard brand.
The stepped-hull design of the 433PC provides 27 percent more interior volume than her predecessor, The Moorings 393PC. Inside is a spacious air-conditioned saloon, redesigned with a brand-new layout for the model range. A well-appointed galley now sits forward, with a forward-facing settee/table located aft. Oversize windows provide panoramic views, allowing guests to take in the sunset or savor the ever-changing scenery while cruising.
Large sliding glass doors open to the aft cockpit, which offers U-shaped seating around a communal dining table. The saloon door to the foredeck, a signature feature of The Moorings’ newest catamarans, acts as a breezeway to the interior while at anchor.
