Of the new boats will be the 5800 Flagship Catamaran, the Moorings 4800, and the 42.3. The charter company also announced that guests will now be able to enjoy the US East Coast as new destinations and route options.
The new 5800 Flagship Catamaran is supposedly the most innovative and roomy yacht the Moorings have ever offered and will be available for a bareboat charter or an all-inclusive cruising with a hostess, chef, and captain. Designed by Robertson & Caine, the 5800 has a forward cockpit lounge area and six guest cabins, each with an en-suite bathroom. The elevated fly-bridge has lounge seating and a wet bar, giving customers 360-degree views of the seascapes. Great for groups of up to 12, the 5800 will be available in the British Virgin Islands starting December 2012.
With the success of their popular 4600 catamaran, Moorings decided to add the 4800 to their fleet. Great for a crew of eight but big enough for ten, the yacht features a "covered forward cockpit, electric winches, inverter, generator and air-conditioning." It will be available for barefoot and crewed charters in select spots throughout the Caribbean and Mediterranean beginning Spring 2013.
As the "heart of the Beneteau Oceanis range," the company promises that the new Moornings 42.3 brings comfortable, fast sailing. With help from the mainsail arch, you should be able to sail safely while enjoying extra room in the cockpit. The 42.3 has three cabins, two heads, and air conditioning. Once aboard the 42.3 you'll have the option of sailing in the British Virgin Islands, Belize, The Bahamas, and Gocek and Turgutreis, Turkey.
Of the new destinations, Moorings will have new bases in "Annapolis, Maryland and Miami, Florida with stops in the scenic Keys; plus Crewed Yacht charters from St. Thomas, USVI." If you've been wanting to check out the Mediterranean, Moorings are also adding a new base in Corfu, Greece.
