Moorings

—Advertorial—

The Moorings is proud to announce an unparalleled investment in its global fleet.

Steadfast in upholding the superior quality its customers have grown to expect, the company will invest over $50 million this coming year on new sail and power yachts destined for vacation destinations worldwide. Building on a $40 million investment from the previous year, The Moorings will work in close partnership with world-renowned yacht builders Beneteau and Robertson & Caine to evolve its fleet of custom-designed sailing monohulls and catamarans, as well as its innovative fleet of power catamarans.

The investment continues a long heritage of leadership in the yacht charter industry, which began over 45 years ago. As a family-owned business in the British Virgin Islands under founders Charlie and Ginny Cary, The Moorings pioneered the charter vacation experience by caring for each customer like family and in turn, earning their longstanding loyalty. Over four decades later, this focus lives on, with every new yacht design inspired by customer feedback.

For instance, launching this fall, The Moorings’ new 433 power catamaran includes a spacious master suite that fills the entire length of the starboard hull, a huge fly bridge and a convertible saloon that opens on to the cockpit and foredeck, creating a truly social environment for families and friends. The forward-facing lounge and oversized windows provide remarkable views. Additionally, with twin 260hp Yanmar engines, the 433PC offers impressive speeds and fuel-sipping efficiency, giving charterers the independence to explore cruising ground highlights farther and faster.

Over the past year, The Moorings has also introduced the versatile 45.3 and 51.5 monohulls, the enormously successful 514 power catamaran and the state-of-the-art 4000 sail catamaran to its global fleet. The company has also expanded the presence of its flagship Moorings 5800 sail catamaran, available to bareboat with six double cabins, or with a luxurious all-inclusive package featuring a crew of three and all gourmet meals, beverages and water sports equipment included. With these new vessels, The Moorings offers a yacht selection for all tastes in more than 20 destinations worldwide.

“The Moorings prides itself on providing unparalleled experiences on the water,” said Josie Tucci, General Manager of The Moorings, “Whether you are new to chartering, a lifelong sailor, or simply want enjoy the world’s most scenic waters, we want to provide you with the best yachts and service so you can focus on what matters most – your vacation.”

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
