About The Moorings

The Moorings is the world’s premier yacht charter company, offering unmatched quality, service and attention to detail since 1969. We offer charter options for casual travelers and experienced boaters alike. Those seeking a hands-on sailing experience will best enjoy a bareboat charter aboard one of our traditional monohulls or contemporary sail catamarans. If you want to see the most of a destination, or aren’t quite comfortable with sailing, a charter aboard a high-performance power catamaran is the perfect choice. For the premium charter experience, a crewed yacht complete with captain and gourmet chef will treat you to an all-inclusive vacation that’s simply, and exclusively, about you. We also offer group charters for company incentives and more.

British Virgin Islands: Yacht Charter with The Moorings

We just came back from the ultimate experience with The Moorings. The British Virgin Islands have been on our travel bucket list for many years. From the stunning blue ocean water, to the various islands offering a variety of experiences, there is endless adventure here!

The most popular way to see the British Virgin Islands, also known as the BVI, is by a Yacht Charter. When we received an invitation to do just that with The Moorings we couldn’t say no! Think sun, sand and the ultimate all inclusive experience that’s actually affordable.

In this blog post we are going to be sharing all the information you need to book a Yacht Charter with The Moorings! So let’s get into it.

moorings catamaran rental

What To Expect when you Charter a Yacht with The Moorings

The Moorings is one of the leading Yacht Charter providers in the BVI and they have over 20 destinations around the world that they operate out of. So to say the least, you are in good hands!

The Best Group Trip

Looking for an unforgettable holiday with your family and friends? Then you NEED to charter a Yacht with The Moorings. The team truly goes above and beyond to make your getaway special as they tailor the trip to your group. This is the perfect way to celebrate a milestone like a retirement or wedding anniversary, or have the most epic birthday party! The best part is, the more people in your group, the more affordable it is for everyone! So you can invite up to 10 people total and have the ultimate group getaway.

Type of Charters Available

The Moorings offer a few different ways to charter a Yacht. If you or someone in your group has a Captain’s License and want to navigate a destination yourself, you can do that! Want to have just a skipper provided, or have a fully crewed Yacht for an all-inclusive experience, that can happen too! There are many options to make your holiday perfect! If you want to learn more about Skippered Yacht Charters and what that includes, you can read more here .

With the option of a fully crewed Yacht Charter, this means that there is a Captain as well as a Private Chef provided with the Yacht. Meaning you and your group can relax and enjoy the destination without having to worry about navigating the boat, cooking or cleaning. This is the experience that our group had, so this is what we are going to chat about in this blog post today.

Inclusions With A Crewed Charter

The Moorings team truly provides a 5 star experience when it comes to a fully crewed yacht charter. Leading up to the trip our entire group was sent a survey which included some simple questions about preferences for food we like, dietary restrictions, meal sizes we prefer as well as the type of beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) we would like to have on the yacht.

Each day we were served breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a variety of appetizers in the afternoon. Snacks were also included on the boat to have at any time.

Each Yacht has a slightly different layout, but each bedroom comes with a comfortable bed and an ensuite bathroom for a home away from home feel during your vacation.

If you enjoy water-sports, then you will definitely enjoy having unlimited use of Paddle boards, Kayaks and Snorkeling Fins on board! The BVI is known for its beautiful blue water, so you will be sure to get a lot of use out of all of these.

Yacht Types Available

The Moorings offers a variety of Yachts to choose from, but we are going to speak about the options for crewed charters in this blog post today!

The crewed yachts offered are either power yachts or sailing yachts. They can hold a variety of group sizes from 2 people all the way up to 10, so you will need to cater your Yacht choice to your group size!

If you would like to read more about each individual Yacht available for crewed charters, y ou can do that here!

Our Experience With The Moorings

moorings catamaran rental

The experience starts when you begin the trip planning process with The Moorings team. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and eager to make this trip perfect for our group. They sent us the pre-departure surveys, general information about the yacht we would be on, and answered any questions that we had regarding our upcoming trip.

We spent 5 days on the luxurious Moorings 5800 Crewed Yacht! This Yacht has two above deck cabins and 3 below deck cabins perfect for groups of up to 10 people. There is a large dining area inside with a fully stocked kitchen. There is an outside dining area at the back of the yacht as well, where we spent almost every meal! Our yacht had two big nets at the front to enjoy the Caribbean sunrise and sunsets. We also spent a lot of time on the top deck where there was another lounge area that gave us a stunning 360 view of our surroundings!

Example of an above deck cabin on The Moorings Crewed 5800 Yacht

From the moment we arrived on the Yacht, Captain Seymour and Chef Vicki made our group feel welcome. We were excited to depart on this 5 day adventure sailing through the BVI. We did an initial safety briefing, and the Captain showed us around all of the areas of the boat. We then discussed the best plan of action for our itinerary. This was based on the weather and the destinations our group was eager to see.

Throughout the entirety of the trip, our Captain continuously checked in with us to give us updates on our itinerary based on weather. His top priority is safety so he made sure we got to see almost everything we wanted to in the safest way possible. Some highlights for us were the world famous Baths, Saba Rock and the Soggy Dollar!

Chef Vicki ensured that we were well fed for every meal. She truly went above and beyond to make our experience special by catering our meals to our group. She even prepared a birthday cake for a member of our group and stocked on late night snacks like cookies and chips! Chef Vicki also provided turn down service for our rooms each day which is greatly appreciated when you are on vacation.

What Our Days looked Like

Waking up in the morning to views of the Ocean from our cabin was truly the best way to start the day. Some days we even woke up and dove right into the water before breakfast! We also really enjoyed starting our morning with coffee on the top deck of the boat to really take in the beauty of the BVI!

moorings catamaran rental

Every stop that we made was so unique. You could truly spend weeks exploring the BVI and still not see everything.However, our group was determined to see as much as we could. So we typically started our mornings quite early to be able to get to our first destination of the day. We definitely recommend adding the Baths and Caves to your BVI itinerary, this place is absolutely spectacular. Another stop was at The Soggy Dollar for a famous Painkiller! However our Captain made us his version, and controversial opinion, we all liked his more HA! However, it is still worth the stop for the incredible beach and to experience this famous spot.

moorings catamaran rental

With the water being so blue everywhere we went, we made sure to pull out the paddle boards and kayaks as much as we could! The Moorings team also provides everyone on the boat with flippers for snorkeling, so make sure to pack your mask with you. We saw so many fish at every stop we made, and sea turtles too!

If we were in need of relaxation we made our way to the front nets or the top deck where Chef Vicki or Captain served up some excellent drinks.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking for an unforgettable experience with your friends and family, then we cannot recommend chartering a Yacht with The Moorings enough. Whether you choose to navigate the Yacht yourself, or indulge in the all inclusive fully crewed experience, this is a bucket list trip.

Moorings 403PC

Moorings 403PC

Award-winning power catamaran.

European Powerboat of the Year

Discover sharp lines and contemporary design that is understated, simple, and elegant

Like the 46- and 53-foot predecessors, the side glazing runs the full length of the hull. The sleek roof cap integrates the largest flybridge ever seen on a 40-foot power cat.

Moorings 403 PC saloon and galley

Comfort At All Levels

Cruisers take pleasure in the comforts of home. Onboard the Moorings 403PC, each living space provides an enriched experience of life at sea.

Moorings 403 powercat Aft cockpit

Outside, the spaces are numerous and impressive for a forty-footer.

They include the flybridge, aft cockpit, aft decks, and sunbathing areas accessible through the side decks or directly from the saloon via the forward door, an innovation present on Moorings catamarans since 2010. Once the large sliding door is opened, the charm of the new contemporary design is apparent. The L-shaped galley is fully equipped on the port side and allows for gourmet dining. Going forward, the comfortable saloon immediately welcomes you. Opposite, the interior steering position provides maximum safety, with a perfect peripheral view of the sea.The Moorings 403PC offers spacious volume and comfort, particularly in the cabins. As you lay your head to sleep, you can comfortably enjoy cabins fitted with generous island beds and sea views. Two heads are located in the passageway on the port side and forward in the starboard owner suite.

Moorings 403PC

Top-Notch Performance

The Moorings 403PC is Fuel-efficient, stable and nimble. This yacht was carefully engineered by Simonis Voogd to maintain a weight and trim ratio rarely found in catamarans of this size.

During quiet moments, nothing disturbs the comfort of the passengers.

The two technical areas at the rear are separated and accessible only from the outside. They are equipped with two 320 HP engines, all in line with the exceptional reliability of our catamarans. Promising to reach 15 knots at cruising speed and more than 17 knots at top speed, they will ensure a large autonomy at lower speeds to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding cruisers.

Moorings 403PC

Her on-board comfort makes it possible to consider doing some beautiful cruising and her range is more than correct. All of that for a budget that is obviously lower than the larger models that don’t necessarily offer much more.

Moorings 403PC

The Leopard 40 Powercat is a generous cruising platform easily managed by two people.

Southern Boating logo

The whole party can easily move up the 40’s flybridge. It has a grill, fridge and sink, along with a U-shape settee around a table with cupholders for at least eight people. A chaise is nearby for sunbathing. There’s room for three more people at the helm.
