The Moorings recently introduced the newest yacht in its bareboat sailing charter fleet - the three-cabin/two-head Moorings 3900.

This new catamaran joins the fleet as part of a recent $65 million investment toward the purchase of more than 140 new yachts for the 2010-11 charter season, including seven current models and the recently introduced Moorings 50.5 monohull.

All yachts are built exclusively for The Moorings through partnerships with Robertson & Caine and Beneteau.

The new yachts are being delivered to 12 of The Moorings' charter destinations, including the British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, St. Lucia, St. Martin, Grenada, Belize, Mexico, Greece, Croatia, Turkey, Tahiti and Thailand.

"By working solely with these industry partners we can ensure that our guests receive the most innovative, comfortable and safe yachts available for charter vacations," Moorings COO Cheryl Powell said in a statement.

"All of the catamarans and a majority of the monohulls are delivered to their assigned cruising grounds on their own bottoms," she added. "This is an industry first and true testament to the excellent handling, comfort and safety that's inherent to each yacht's design."
