Unique to you, a yachting holiday from our travel partners at The Moorings is an experience in a league of its own…

Set sail on a journey past classic coastlines, weave your way through picture-postcard atolls, or island hop to secluded anchorages and lively ports; all on a private yacht charter serviced to your preferences and where you set the pace on a tailor-made itinerary.

With a nearly 50-year history, The Moorings is a prestigious and assured choice for your luxury sail or power and all-inclusive crewed yacht charter.

Renowned for their extensive, award-winning fleet of more than 400 yachts, this premier yacht charter company offers lucky guests an unforgettable experience on board, along with outstanding destinations and only the newest fleet of yachts.

For the ultimate voyage, a crewed charter on a sail or power yacht is an all-inclusive luxury holiday for two to 10 persons, which will have the distinct desires of your group at its centre. Enjoy the service of your own gourmet chef, who will get in touch prior to your departure to compile a menu for your trip that at once surprises and meets your personal tastes. All meals, snacks and beverages – including a fully-stocked bar – are included.

Your hugely knowledgeable captain will keep you acquainted with your locality as you wend through the waterways of your unique itinerary, and be on hand to share their expert nautical skills should you wish to pick up a few new tricks along the way.

Then of course there are the amenities on board to enhance your experience in the water: snorkelling, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks and fishing equipment are all at hand as standard across the fleet.

While you may presume space on board is sparse, in fact the cabins all boast a double bed and their own en suite with shower, while an air-conditioned saloon with an entertainment centre, and a large dining area, ensure room for your whole party to find privacy and a space of their own. Should you struggle with which yacht to choose for your own voyage, the Moorings 4800 comes highly recommended, named ‘Boat of the Year’ by Cruising World Magazine and with three spacious cabins sleeping up to six guests.

Crewed yacht charters from The Moorings are available in 13 destinations throughout the Caribbean, Americas, Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Far East and South Pacific. With bases in Capri, the Seychelles, Tahiti and Phuket – to name a few – your personalised itinerary can take you on a voyage into the world’s most glorious stretches of water.

Additionally, The Moorings has recently opened a new base in Antigua at historic Nelson’s Dockyard; perfect for indulging in the secluded beaches and Caribbean charm of this stunning area.

Our own inspiring suggestion is to combine your sailing holiday with a stay on land. If you’re new to sailing, perhaps start with a five-day taster experience with The Moorings, followed by a week at a luxury resort. Or if your crew is already in love with being at sea, how about sailing from one destination to another on board your private charter, with a stay at your journey’s end to complete the experience?

So, if you seek a holiday where each day you’ll wake up to a new view, enjoying scrumptious fine dining under blue and starlit skies with only your nearest and dearest for company, let us inspire you with a bespoke private charter from The Moorings.
