The Moorings Launches Skippered Charter Package

Now available to book for charters departing from October 2023 in The Moorings’ most popular charter destination, the British Virgin Islands– The newly launched, Skippered Charter Package is designed for an easier booking process for guests, with improved transparency regarding both the yacht and the Skipper. Skipper Profiles will now be available online, allowing customers to choose from a selection of professional skippers that are fully qualified, with a wealth of sailing experience to ensure an exceptional vacation. The package includes skipper provisioning, which includes all the skipper’s food and drink, as well as Wi-Fi on board as standard. 

The Moorings has offered Skippered charters for decades, but there are a few key differences that set this new product apart. Firstly, the new Moorings 4500L 4-cabin catamaran has been selected as the dedicated yacht for this product, comfortably accommodating 6 guests with room for up to 8. Captains selected for this product will live aboard the yacht full-time, similar to The Moorings all-inclusive Crewed Yachts, which will ensure each captain is personally familiar with the nuances of the vessel and will add an enhanced layer to the yacht’s maintenance.  

Josie Tucci, VP of Sales & Marketing for The Moorings comments, “Skippered charters open up this type of vacation to the inexperienced sailor, as well as provide enhanced options to experienced sailors looking for a more relaxing experience when sailing abroad, as your skipper will take control of the navigation in your chosen destination in addition to being a fantastic source of local knowledge. This new Package takes the guesswork out of booking this type of vacation, and we look forward to welcoming travelers new to holidays at sea with this exciting new product.” 

This package comes as an addition to The Moorings’ current, flexible skippered charter offering. If guests are interested in booking a skippered charter outside of the package, they are still able to do so by selecting any yacht from any of The Moorings worldwide destinations, adding a skipper, and ensuring there is a cabin spare for them.  For more information please visit The Moorings Skippered Charter Package page.
