The Moorings adds monohulls to BVI fleet

The Moorings said it is preparing to add more than 20 new monohull yachts to its charter fleet in the British Virgin Islands.

The Moorings said it is preparing to add more than 20 new monohull yachts to its charter fleet in the British Virgin Islands.

The company said it recently invested more than $50 million in the development of new yachts in more than 20 destinations across the globe. As part of the fleet investment, the new monohulls were chosen to cater to classic sailing enthusiasts, the company said.

Set to debut in the BVI in December, the yachts include the all-new Moorings 38.2 and three monohulls ranging from 42 to 51 feet.

Designed by naval architects Finot-Conq and built for The Moorings by Beneteau, the 38.2 features two en-suite staterooms and amenities designed for couples or small families seeking a traditional sailing getaway.

The company plans to add more Beneteau monohulls, including the three-cabin Moorings 42.3 and Moorings 45.3 and the four-cabin Moorings 51.4, the largest yacht in Jeanneau’s Sun Odyssey range.

“The Moorings was founded on Charlie Cary’s passion for sailing in arguably the world’s most beautiful cruising grounds, the British Virgin Islands,” The Moorings general manager Josie Tucci said in a statement.

“The innovative features and classic sailing qualities of our newest monohulls have become increasingly popular with our clients. Moreover, they’re a testament to the heritage of our brand. We recognize that generation after generation of passionate sailors charter with us to sail some of the best waters in the world.”
