Yacht charter company The Moorings will invest more than $50 million this coming year on new sail and power yachts for vacation destinations worldwide.

Building on a $40 million investment from the previous year, The Moorings said it will work in close partnership with Beneteau and Robertson & Caine to evolve its fleet of custom-designed sailing monohulls and catamarans and its innovative fleet of power catamarans.

The company began more than 45 years ago as a family-owned business in the British Virgin Islands under founders Charlie and Ginny Cary.

Launching this fall, The Moorings’ new 433 power catamaran includes a master suite that fills the entire length of the starboard hull, a flybridge, a convertible saloon that opens onto the cockpit and foredeck and a forward-facing lounge. It’s powered by twin 260-hp Yanmar engines.

During the last year, The Moorings also has introduced 45.3 and 51.5 monohulls, the l 514 power catamaran and the 4000 sail catamaran to its global fleet.

The company also has expanded the presence of its flagship Moorings 5800 sail catamaran, available to bareboat with six double cabins or with an all-inclusive package featuring a crew of three and meals, beverages and water sports equipment included.

“The Moorings prides itself on providing unparalleled experiences on the water,” The Moorings general manager Josie Tucci said in a statement. “Whether you are new to chartering, a lifelong sailor or simply want enjoy the world’s most scenic waters, we want to provide you with the best yachts and service so you can focus on what matters most — your vacation.”
