The Moorings, the word's premier yacht charter company, has announced a new charter location in Key West, FL. The new location is in partnership with Florida Yachts Charters and will offer a variety of charter options including bareboat, skippered yacht charters, sailing catamarans and monohulls, and powered catamarans. Charters are already open and available for the 2021 season.
As many boaters know, Key West is one of the biggest boating destinations in North America. With its tropical weather and expansive waterways, there are nearly limitless places to explore. The new Key West locations are accessible by car, plane, or ferry, so clients will have a variety of exciting ways to not only reach their departure point, but also to experience the Keys on their own once underway. The Moorings operations will be based out of Ocean's Edge Marina & Resort as well as Stock Island Marina Village.
Guests will be able to experience several Key West highlights in their travels, both on shore and on the water. On shore, guests can experience the nightlife of Key West's Mallory Square and Duval Street, as well as laid back atmospheres at Marathon and Islamorada. One of the most popular boat destinations will be Dry Tortugas National Park to the west.
Ian Pedersen, Senior Marketing Manager at The Moorings and Sunsail, added “Our charter guests are constantly looking to sail the best, and most exotic yachting destinations in the world, many of which are far-flung destinations such as the Virgin Islands, French Polynesia, the Seychelles, or Greece. However with the current travel climate due to Covid-19, many travelers are looking to realize their travel dreams a little closer to home. The decision to partner with Florida Yachts Charters and open a new charter operation in the Florida Keys – widely renowned as one of the greatest and most pristine yachting and fishing destinations in the world - is a direct effort to fulfil our customers’ preferences, and we look forward to offering this new and exciting cruising area to avid boaters everywhere in the months and years to come.”
While the Covid-19 pandemic has affected openings depending on the restrictions in each locale, the Key West locations are already open for charters for the 2021 season. Other Moorings locations also open include Italy, Bahamas, St. Martin, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Antigua, and the US Virgin Islands. Locations set to open for May 1st include Tahiti, Martinique, Seychelles, and Croatia.
