Next Stop, Key West

The Moorings adds the Conch Republic to its roster of charter bases.

The Moorings added Key West, Fla., to its worldwide network of charter operations, joining St. Petersburg as another point of departure in the Sunshine State.


The Key West base is located at Ocean’s Edge Resort and Marina and at Stock Island Marina Village. The locations will offer bareboat and skippered options with monohull and catamaran sailboats and power cats.


“Yacht charters in Florida have proven to be an appealing option for our guests since the launch of the St. Petersburg operation last year,” vice president of sales and marketing Josie Tucci said in a statement. “These Florida charter options offer the unique flair of a yacht charter vacation right here in America’s backyard.”
