The Moorings releases BVI charter app

Publish date:

Customers with The Moorings will now have access to a range of chartering information for the British Virgin Islands with The Moorings BVI Yacht Charter Guide app.

The company said the interactive app will provide charterers with essential information about cruising the BVI and is a preliminary resource before starting a trip, as well as a go-to throughout the charter. The app gives access to detailed boating regulations and navigation and valuable information about BVI dining, safety and history.

“This app is an excellent way for our customers to start their charter planning and will help them become more knowledgeable about the waters they’re cruising,” The Moorings head of global marketing Shannan Brennan said in a statement.

In addition to providing a range of cruising and island facts, the app will offer the opportunity to take a BVI Chart Briefing online. The Moorings has partnered with the sailing school NauticEd to enable customers who have taken and passed the app’s accompanying test to benefit from a fast checkout.

The online test, which is optional, covers topics such as navigation, weather and permits, which are encompassed in the app’s sections. Once the test is completed and passed, a certificate will allow customers to start their journey earlier. The BVI app is free to all customers of The Moorings and is available on any iPad through the App Store.
