Governor Welcomes International Charter Company to Yacht Haven Grande on St. Thomas
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Governor Albert Bryan welcomed The Moorings, an international luxury yacht charter company with locations throughout the Caribbean and around the world, to the company’s new location at Yacht Haven Grande on St. Thomas.
The Moorings, which also sails out of Tahiti, the Seychelles, the Mediterranean, the Americas and Thailand, will begin offering crewed charters throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands aboard it’s award-winning Moorings 5000 vessel, a five-cabin catamaran that holds eight people and crew.
The Moorings plans to begin offering bareboat and powerboat charters on its three-cabin Moorings 4000 sailing catamaran and its Moorings 433 power catamaran in the USVI in March, and the company said it plans to add more vessels to its fleet in St. Thomas.
“We’re honored and very pleased to be chosen as a destination by this prestigious charter company, which is known worldwide for its premier and luxury excursions in some of the most beautiful waters on the planet, now including the USVI,” Bryan said. “The Moorings endorsement of the territory as a prime luxury charter locale is a welcome addition to the USVI’s Tourism product, as well as the Bryan-Roach Administration’s toward expanding and enhancing marine tourism and the marine industry in the Virgin Islands.”
The Moorings has been providing 5-star sailing vacations since 1969, and it will be offering seven-day and 10-day itineraries throughout the United States Virgin Islands.
“We are thrilled to launch St. Thomas as our newest destination,” Josie Tucci, vice-president of sales and marketing, said. “The USVI has long been a sought-after cruising grounds, and we are excited to offer this new, captivating destination to our charter guests.”
