Owning a Charter Boat 24 Years Later
There comes a time in every Moorings Yacht Owner's life when they will have to make the decision of what comes after their time in the Moorings Charter Fleet is over. Owners may decide to bring their yacht home, or go cruising around the world. They may choose to trade in their boat and purchase another yacht to re-enter The Moorings Yacht Ownership Program, and some owners may decide to sell their boat. Alternatively, The Moorings, unlike any other charter company, has the Footloose Charter Fleet. This fleet is composed of former Moorings yachts, and many owners enjoy extended yacht ownership in this program.
Moorings Owner, Rick Chappell, decided that after eight years with The Moorings and Footloose, it was time to bring his boat home.

An Annapolis to Remember
The 2016 Annapolis Powerboat Show was one for the books. The Moorings Yacht Ownership Team proudly displayed the Moorings 514PC and the Moorings 433PC, and we were grateful for the chance to meet various Moorings Yacht Owners—some who have been in the program for 4 years, and also some fresh new faces.
There was one event in particular that stood out among the rest, and that was having the unique opportunity to be a part of the christening of the Moorings 514PC knows as “Blonndie”. Blonndie was the display model at the Annapolis Powerboat Show and the proud new owners, Eric and Kendra, were able to make the trip to Annapolis to see her for the first time.
Another Year, Another Successful Owner's Flotilla
There is no party like a Moorings Owner’s party, and, true to form, this standard was upheld at the Moorings Owner’s Flotilla that took place last month out of the Moorings Base in Road Town, Tortola. The event was one for the books, and we will reminisce the occasion for years to come. It was a week filled to the brim with sailing, making new friendships and enjoying good times.
Patience Pays Off for Moorings 433 PC Owner
David Burgess, owner of the Moorings 433 PC “My Wish”, has been around boats most of his life. “I grew up around the water. I had a Carolina Sport Fisher and I would go fishing all the time." And he is no stranger to the charter experience, he reveals, “The first time I chartered was ten years ago on a Moorings 4700 sailing catamaran. Once the 474 PC came out, we chartered those and really liked them. We also chartered the 393 PC. When I discovered the 433 PC was in production, I started frequently following up with the sales agents, watched the progression of the boat, and purchased hull #1. When my boat arrived in the BVI, I took my wife and daughters on her maiden voyage. We spent Thanksgiving on Anegada for Lobster Fest and we had an absolute blast. From North Sound, we made it to Anegada in under an hour.”
